so hello my fellow interpol inamorata! the new self-titled interpol album comes out tomorrow. aren’t you excited? yes? not so much? who hasn’t heard it yet? what are your deepest and darkest thoughts about it if you have? the reviews out there have really been a mixed bag. the oh so important music reviewers either seem to really like or really hate it. they are using all kinds of adjectives to describe it. in fact, if i see one more person refer to the newest offering as “their eponymous album” one more time i might vomit. anyway, i read an article and sam mentioned that he sees this album as a slow burn and it takes some time to really let it sink in. i’ve had it for a while and i have to agree, i appreciate it more and more with each listen. i wasn’t a huge fan at first but i am now to the point of obsessing on certain songs!
is anyone planning on going to see shows this time around? i’m lucky enough to be attending a small kcrw show tonight, an outdoor show tomorrow and the jimmy kimmel taping on wednesday. the benefits of living in so cal, i suppose ;) if anyone else is going to be around, give me a holler!
in the meantime, i’ll leave you with the new video for barricade. of course, cola gorda is looking all sorts of hot in it so there is even more of a reason to watch!
