Rainy Day Rock - De File
Does Collecting Make You Feel Dirty?
Rainy Day Rock
I'm not entirely sold on Interpol's Antics yet, though I do like it a good deal. But it sounded really, really good on this slightly rainy day, sitting at my laptop in the kitchen, moist air drifting in from the screen doors in the front and back.

Mode: graytful
Muse: a memory of Interpol's Antics

It's good in the post-dusk, cooking dinner, mood lighting times, too. Makes me feel nostalgiac and new at the same time. Good album. But it took me about ten listens to feel that way.

Re: antics

I think we need more reviews of music, books that have been thoroughly digested. I often can't tell what I will like for the long haul for quite a while.

I feel the same way. At first the CD didnt really grab me like TOTBL did. After awhile I re-listened and it just resonated with me. I'm sold now.

Funny thing I found this LJ entry on Google looking for info on the video for Evil which was directed by Charlie White. The search terms were 'interpol charlie white' and this entry came up. You've been googled!

That's funny. Nice to hear from you. Do you like the Chameleons, per chance? Antics reminds me more of them and less of Joy Division, if that makes sense.

I should say, in closing, that I've found Chris and Gerard's taste at Matador to be really well matched to mine over the years, particularly when duration is factored in. Matador releases that I received coolly at first have become favorites months, even years later.

I do like the Chameleons. I find that Interpol doesnt so much sound like any particular band but you can hear the influence of many. There are a few songs in which I hear a distinct Smiths influence and even Tones on Tail in one track.

I have not really heard anything else on the Matador label but I will check it out. Do have any suggestions?

Oh, gosh. I'm a huge Pavement fan. The Mission of Burma comeback album was really great. They reissued the second Soft Boys record, which is very nice. Some Guided By Voices blows me away. I'd check out their 10th or 15th anniversary compilations to get a sense of their catalogue.
