Plenty of artists are making albums about the ever-present crushing dread of contemporary America, but no one does everyday anxiety quite as well as Protomartyr. Over four albums, the Detroit post-punk outfit has depicted turmoil both minuscule and enormous, whether drawn from the news or a tortured inner monologue.
