I haven't heard the new Interpol album. I guess there's always a fear when approaching new material from a band you really like. (Turn On the Bright Lights and Antics are two of my favorite albums) There's always that impression that nothing can be as good as the old stuff, and while Our Love to Admire was decent, it didn't occupy my earbuds as long as their first two albums have.
But a nice way to take the plunge is live, and Prefix (via Pitchfork) brings word that Interpol just did a few new songs on BBC Radio 6, which showcase how tight the band, even without Carlos D.
I had the amazing experience of seeing Intepol play Creators Project back in June (time flies!), and a couple of photos are up at HuffPo. That was an incredible set, dipping heavily into older stuff - there was one point where they played something like "PDA," "Obstacle 1" and "Evil" back-to-back-to-back. So good!
The entire Interpol photo set is after the jump.
