Big Noble – “Traveler” Video

Big Noble is the project of Daniel Kessler of Interpol and sound designer Joseph Fraioli, and their debut under the title First Light came out in March of this year. Since then, Kessler has slowly tricked out videos for the ambient, tension-building tracks. The stunning “Ocean Picture” is probably the best one, but his time-lapsed… More »

Photos: NorthSide Festival (Denmark) 2015

Not to be confused with Brooklyn’s Northside Festival, Denmark’s NorthSide Festival (note the capitalization!) takes place ever June in Aarhaus Denmark, and the fest celebrated its sixth year of existence with a lineup featuring the Black Keys, FKA Twigs, Death Cab For Cutie, alt-J, the Wu-Tang Clan (at least, some of them), and a bunch… More »

Interpol – “All The Rage Back Home (Panda Bear Remix)”

At this point, Panda Bear seems pretty far-removed from his Animal Collective bandmates, let alone the rest of the indie rock landscape. He is not, then, the first person you’d expect Interpol to recruit for a remix. And yet Panda has just dropped his remix of Interpol’s churning El Pintor single “All The Rage BackMore »

Big Noble – “Atlantic Din” Video

Big Noble is the collaboration between Interpol’s Daniel Kessler and sound designer Joseph Fraioli. Their debut album First Light is out now, and today they’ve released the video for “Atlantic Din.” Like the first two videos — “Peg” and “Ocean Picture” — the visuals take familiar shots and stretch them out into longer, looming landscapes.

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 vision for… 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 twist: 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 minutes of… More »

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 to… 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 u… 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 the point… 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 me that this i… More »
