The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

This was another strong week for music videos, and it hurt my heart to leave things like Ryan Hemsworth's "Too Long Here" and Majid Jordan's "Forever" off. Even with all the strong videos out this week, though, the list feels like something of a placeholder for whenever Björk gives us some dizzy new… More »

Interpol – “Everything Is Wrong” Video (Dir. Paul Banks)

Last year, Interpol frontman Paul Banks directed his band's boxing-focused video for "Twice As Hard," a song from their album El Pintor. He's now made another one, a black-and-white video for "Everything Is Wrong." The clip follows the three members of Interpol around New York as they get ready for a show. The… More »

Interpol – “Same Town, New Story (The Field Remix)”

Back in September, Interpol released their first album in four years, El Pintor, an album that was good if somewhat predictable. Swedish producer Axel Willner, bka the Field, remixed the track "Same Town, New Story," stripping it down and re-dressing it in twinkling minimal synths that stretch the song into more than 11 minute… More »

Interpol – “What Is What”

Interpol have once again teamed up with artist Shepard Fairey -- who also did the artwork for their 2004 album Antics -- for a mural in Brooklyn advertising the El Pintor single "Everything Is Wrong." The mural features anagrams of the track name -- "The Very Growing Sin" and "Every Wrong Insight" -- that mirror… More »

Watch Interpol Brush The Snow Off On Seth Meyers

A week ago, Interpol were trapped on their tour bus in a Buffalo snowstorm. Last night, they were on TV. Interpol had already been booked to play Late Night With Seth Meyers, and I'd like to imagine that they would've hooked up a webcam and done their performance remotely if they hadn't been able… More »

Interpol survived Buffalo's insane snowstorm and lived to tell about it. As Radio.com reports, guitarist Daniel Kessler spoke to KROQ's Kevin & Bean about being trapped on a tour bus for 50+ hours amidst more than six feet of snowfall in western New York. Kessler explained that at first he mistakenly believed the… More »

Interpol Have Been Trapped In A Buffalo Snowstorm For 40 Hours

Interpol played the Newport Music Hall in Columbus on Monday, the same day snow covered much of the Midwest for the first time this season. It was a pretty scene here in Central Ohio, but further north the snow was way more intense. En route to Tuesday's show in Toronto the band got held… More »

26 Essential Songs From The NYC Rock Resurgence

Mainstream American rock music, as you might recall, was in rough shape in the late '90s. The Alt-Nation era had run out of road for the most part, giving way to legions of awful post-grunge and nu-metal bands soundtracking extreme energy-drink commercials and extreme-sports video games. These were dark times. This was at a time… More »

Interpol – “My Desire (Factory Floor Remix)”

New York's Interpol and London's Factory Floor are two bands with very different takes on retro-minded postpunk darkness. And yet they've come together, with Factory Floor transforming "My Desire," the single from Interpol's new El Pintor album, into a heaving and twinkling seven-minute goth-house assault. It sounds absolutely nothing like the original, to… More »

Interpol – “My Desire” Video

Interpol's new video for "My Desire" follows their clips for "All The Rage Back Home" and "Twice As Hard" as the third from El Pintor, the band's new album. Director Markus Lundqvist films the band playing to a handful of sad, desperate drunks in a mostly-empty bar, and it occurs to… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

Before I get into this week's picks, allow me to point out that Jennifer Lopez and Iggy Azalea made a video for a song called "Booty." Hype Williams directed it. It is exactly what you expect it to be. It came out a few years ago, and it has five million views already. At… More »

The Week In Pop: Are You Ready For Some Chris Brown? (Or Nah?)

Football season is pretty awkward this year. There's a widespread unease about watching our modern gladiators destroy each other when so many of them have been accused of battering women and children lately -- that is, if the whole concussion thing didn't already have you feeling vaguely queasy about otherwise amazing moments like More »

Interpol – “Twice As Hard” Video (Dir. Paul Banks)

The latest video from Interpol's El Pintor is directed by frontman Paul Banks himself. Banks uses the slow, dramatic head-bob "Twice As Hard" to soundtrack scenes of real-life boxers training at a New York gym called Mendez Boxing. Like the song itself, the video takes an effective idea and repeats it ad infinitum. Watch… More »

Watch Interpol Brood Elegantly On Letterman

It's always a bit weird when bands show up on late-night shows in T-shirts and dirty sneakers while all the other guests dress to impress. That was never going to be a problem with Interpol. Last night, the band showed up on the Late Show With David Letterman, churning their way through "All TheMore »

Photos: Interpol @ Metropolitan Museum Of Art, NYC 9/2/14

Earlier this summer, Interpol announced their fifth album, El Pintor, and began dropping singles including the opener "All The Rage Back Home" and "Ancient Ways." They sounded like the Interpol we've always known preceding an album that stuck to what they've always done, something Chris examined in depth in his recent… More »
