From the moment the opening single “All The Rage Back Home” begins until the album’s finale, it’s classic Interpol staples: icy guitars, echoing baritone vocals and driving drums propel El Pintor without ever letting up.
The album, produced by Steve Albini, strikes for a collection of uncompromising and direct tracks. The band sports the instinctiveness of punk and the fondness for dissonance of bands like Sonic Youth.
American indie rockers The War on Drugs' indie rock aesthetics and fondness for 80's new wave is alive and well on Lost In The Dream. Guitars are drenched in chorus and reverb, the snare is fat and roomy and the synths create cinematic and haunting landscapes to fill in the gaps.
The Notwist have always blurred the lines between pop, indie and electronic music and kept us all guessing in the best way. It’s their dynamic range that sets them apart from most bands. This is alive and well on Close To The Glass.
