Ultimate Success Today is like classic 60’s lounge music that’s been thrown into a meat grinder and balled up into a frenzy of guitar wales, disorienting saxophone flourishes and nihilistic crooning. What emerges is a subversive version of lounge music that one could stumble around to during an end times cocktail party. Move over Tony Bennett, this is Protomartyr.

Favourite Tracks: ‘Modern Business Hymn’, ‘The Aphorist’ & ‘Worm In Heaven’
