Interpol: El Pintor

 

INTERPOL

NEW York outfit Interpol have been critics faves since debut album
Turn On The Bright Lights appeared out of nowhere in 2002; El Pintor
is their first since the departure of bassist Carlos Dengler, with
vocalist Paul Banks taking over four-string duties.

This may be of precious little interest to anybody but serious fans
but sadly that’s also true of El Pintor, which consists of 11 tracks
of perfectly serviceable guitar rock offering precious little that has
not been done before.  There’s the odd track which stands out – Tidal
Wave in particular – but overall it’s desperately short on thrills.

Like this? Try these: Doves, The Last Broadcast; Editors, The Back
Room; New Order, Low-life
