I was going through and listening to my Interpol vinyl the other day when it occurred to me that some out there may not know of the solo project Julian Plenti Is… Skyscraper, put out by the lead singer. If you are a huge Interpol fan, you are gonna want to find a copy.
I have to admit that I am facing a bit of writer’s block when it comes to this Neck Of The Woods. Why? I just don’t know exactly how I feel about it. Upon the first listen, all I could make out that the album is dramatically different from previous releases from Silversun Pickups.
Before I even get a chance to hear the first song, I notice that the album art is completely different from any thing before, which is a serious bummer. Swoon and Carnavas had beautiful inspiring album art. It was so cool that it was even reflected and reproduced on the tour t-shirts! Why ruin a good thing?
Give the title track of the new album a listen here:
If you would like to preview the entire release head on over to NPR.
This is the hardest blog post I’ve ever had to pen. It is so tempting to just gush for pages about how incredible In The Belly Of The Brazen Bull really is. (That is exactly what I ended up doing) But the fact of the matter is, The Cribs are my favorite band. Sometimes I think they can do no wrong. So if you are looking for an objective review of ITBOTBB look elsewhere.
