iTunes Review

Twelve years after their landmark debut album, Turn on the Bright Lights, NYC’s Interpol crafted their next potential career-defining moment with their fifth album, 2014’s El Pintor. It's their first without founding bassist Carlos Dengler; frontman Paul Banks takes over his duties. This album contains some of the best songs since Interpol's debut. “All the Rage Back Home” slips into Interpol gear, with all their bright electronics guiding them, while “My Desire” follows with sounds that emerge and transform before our ears mid-verse. Banks takes his basswork seriously and drives “Anywhere” to dramatic heights along with guitarist Daniel Kessler, who works overtime coloring in the sounds here and everywhere. “Same Town, New Story” and “My Blue Supreme” cap what would have been the perfect album side in the LP age. If you consider “Everything Is Wrong” the start of the album’s second liftoff, the band again make it into space in good standing.

Waited Forever 9/9/14

I last saw them in 2010 at Stubb's in Austin for their tour of this self titled album and I was pretty pleased with that cd, but I'm even more blown away with El Pintor. I'll be seeing them next month at Stubb's again and I know that it'll be amazing as the last time I was there for them.

They've somehow gotten to be able to mesh into the new age yet still keep their old touch. I wouldn't rate this album any lower than 5 stars. Thanks for saving me every time Interpol. - Koral R

One of the leading post-punk revivalists of the 2000s and 2010s, Interpol took their cues from Joy Division and the Chameleons, fashioning a darkly atmospheric sound helmed by intricate guitars and Paul Banks' somber baritone. The group also had a striking visual presence marked by the members' fondness for suits, which only strengthened their stately, British-influenced appeal. Nevertheless, the band remained rooted in America, where guitarist Daniel Kessler and drummer Greg Drudy first struck up...
