Following their critically acclaimed Domino debut Relatives In Descent, Protomartyr are happy to announce a four song EP of brand new material recorded in collaboration with Kelley Deal (The Breeders) and Mike Montgomery (R.Ring, Ampline).
For Mike and I, working on this EP with Protomartyr was a re-kindling of the tender spark that was struck upon our first encounter with them years ago in Texas. They were graciously tolerant and receptive to my production ideas on the songs and the project quickly grew beyond our private orb. We have cello from Lori Goldston, viola from Jocelyn Hach and even bass clarinet from Evan Ziporyn, and I do some singing with Joe. There's a lot of trust involved when an artist places their songs in your hands, and we were very mindful of that while intentionally trying to take the songs in new directions. - Kelley Deal
