Stream Paul Banks Banks

Interpol frontman Paul Banks has, at least for now, ditched his Julian Plenti alter-ego, and now he's releasing music under his very own name. Next week, he drops his album Banks, and we've already heard opener and first single "The Base." As is increasingly becoming the custom, Banks is now letting us hear the… More »

Turn On The Bright Lights Turns 10

Turn On The Bright Lights is just one of those records for me. When it hit – ten years ago on Aug. 19 – I was at the age when hearing something you really liked mattered the most. I became sort of obsessed with it. The leadup of anticipation and ensuing payoff of seeing the… More »

Paul Banks – “The Base”

Three years ago, Interpol frontman Paul Banks released his first-ever solo album under his Julian Plenti alter-ego. Earlier this year, it looked like that alter-ego was on its way back, as Banks released the Julian Plenti Lives... EP. But instead, Banks just announced his first solo album under his own name. It's called Banks, and… More »

SALEM Remix Interpol

I like Salem. If we play the odds, though, chances are you probably don't (unless you're Juno). That said, it was a pretty interesting move for Interpol -- a once hugely buzzing band on an undeniable critical/popular downturn -- to ask the not necessarily beloved King Night crew to remix their "Try… More »

Reading & Leeds Lineup 2011

If you're a Muse or My Chemical Romance fan, I feel sorta bad for you, but today's your lucky day: The bands are headlining this summer's Reading & Leeds Festivals. The (not so) resurgent Strokes and Pulp are playing co-headline slots. The bills also include the National, Odd Future, UK sensations the Vaccines, Crystal… More »

David Pajo is leaving Interpol, less than a year after joining the band as a touring member. The band announced the lineup change yesterday on their website. According to the post, which also includes a message from Pajo, his exit is completely amicable, and that he wants to stop touring as much to focu… More »

Interpol @ Apogee’s Berkeley Street Studio, Santa Monica 9/6/10

Playing in a space the size of a living room, Interpol worked through an eight-song set along with an interview for KCRW prior to the release of their new album. The new members settled in well: David Pajo was more than proficient on the bass while Brandon Curtis added the background vocals on "NYC"… More »

Interpol – “Barricade” Video

This video for Interpol's second single "Barricade" shoves together arresting images (mirrors, projections on torsos, nighttime balloons, a lack of Carlos D), but it doesn't take to analysis. More »

Interpol – Interpol Premature Evaluation

Considering the details surrounding Interpol's self-produced self-titled fourth album, their first since 2007's Our Love To Admire, it's safe to assume that in some way or another it was intended to be a return to their early form. They've went back to Matador. The artwork's basic. They have no need for a fancy/eye-catching title: These… More »

Interpol “Barricade” For Letterman

Last night Interpol did "Barricade" on Letterman, which was a good opportunity to check out new bassist Dave Pajo and the band's new live keyboard player, Secret Machines' Brandon Curtis. Both did well, though, Pajo's a bit more low-key than Carlos D, in terms of dress and facial hair. Curtis sang the high note… More »

Interpol – “Memory Serves”

So far we've heard “Lights” and “Barricade” from Interpol's upcoming self-titled fourth collection. The guys stay mopey and mid-tempo on "Memory Serves." (Thanks for the tip, Kunal). (Via The Hook) Interpol is out in 9/7 via Matador. More »

Interpol – “Barricade”

You've heard "Lights," the first single from Interpol's upcoming self-titled. The second single, "Barricade," is available now on iTunes. If you liked "Lights" you'll like "Barricade," though I wish the vocals weren't doubled tracked the way they are. Listen at One Thirty BPM and buy it on iTunes. (via P4K) InterpolMore »

Vice & Intel’s Creator’s Project @ MILK Studios, NYC 6/26/10

For 12 hours on Saturday, Vice took over an eight-floor studio in Chelsea. It was Coachella in an art museum, basically. I'm not saying that because building and coding this photo gallery (of shots by Abbey Braden) took as long as one would from a day at a festival (though, it did). It's for… More »

Interpol – “Summer Well” & “Success” (Live)

The Water Street Music Hall in Rochester, NY hosted Interpol 2.0, now with less D but much more Dave Pajo and Brandon Curtis (Secret Machines), for their first show since '08, and their first as a quintet. The show featured bright lights, admired love, antics, and most excitingly some new tunes for the… More »

Interpol Self-Titles Album, Adds Dave Pajo

An update to Interpol's site confirms that the band's forthcoming, fourth record will be the self-produced self-titled affair Interpol. And not so long after announcing an amicable split with bassist and principal mustache Carlos Dengler, the band's stepped up with his replacement: Dave Pajo, Slint hero and guitarist, and apparently the primary pinch… More »

Carlos D Leaves Interpol

Over the weekend, Interpol posted a note to their website announcing the completion of two things: 1) their forthcoming, "heavy record," and 2) the tenure of bassist and lead vampire Carlos Dengler. Mr. D played on the record, but after its recording "informed the rest of us he would be leaving the band" to "pursue… More »
