Editors’ Notes Interpol’s self-titled fourth album puts them back in the independent realm where they made their name. Whereas the previous Our Love to Admire sounded like a major-label album – grand and garish with lots of pomp and circumstance – this release scales things back. They sharpen their guitars on the surprisingly sparse single “Lights” and find much to grind against in their post-apocalyptic ways. The echo and reverb remains plenty heavy and the angst is spotted with glittery, jittery rhythms and panicked vocals. “Success” and “Memory Serves” start things with a hesitant jubilance drifting over the proceedings. “Barricade” breaks out from the pack while “Always Malaise (The Man I Am)” winds down into a gloomy pond. Other tracks like “Try It On,” “All of the Ways” and “The Undoing” dive deeper into their own rarefied type of darkness.
