Coming August 24 : Interpol - 'Marauder'




(Interpol by Jamie-James Medina)



“Marauder is a facet of myself. That’s the guy that fucks up friendships and does crazy shit. He taught me a lot, but it’s representative of a persona that’s best left in song. In a way, this album is like giving him a name and putting him to bed.” -Paul Banks

Months of speculation come to an end today as details of the new Interpol album can finally be confirmed: One of the most critically acclaimed bands of this generation will release their sixth album, Marauder, August 24th on Matador Records.

As you read this, Interpol is currently revealing all details (Themes! Making-of! Album art! Producer! Visuals!) to a convergence of their most fervent fans and media, live from General Prim 30 in Mexico City via a live-streamed press conference. (Update: see the archived video of Interpol's press conference below)



Marauder’s first single, "The Rover", can be heard HERE, and will be performed live on CBS' "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert" tomorrow night, June 8 (11:35 eastern airtime).

Interpol have also confirmed an initial run of worldwide tour dates, in addition to previously announced appearances at London’s BST Hyde Park with The Cure, Glasgow’s TRNSMT Festival, NYC’s House of Vans and Chicago’s Riot Fest. Those that preorder Marauder directly from the Interpol store will get first access to ticket presales for the new shows, which include London's Royal Albert Hall, New York City's Madison Square Garden and Los Angeles' Hollywood Bowl. The full list of tour dates can be found below.

Tracklist
1. If You Really Love Nothing
2. The Rover
3. Complications
4. Flight of Fancy
5. Stay in Touch
6. Interlude 1

11. Party's Over

It finally happened; somebody called the cops on Interpol.

The long arm of the law caught up with Daniel Kessler, Paul Banks, and Sam Fogarino in 2017, as they worked on a new album inside the Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ rehearsal space in Manhattan. Even in its infancy, Marauder was shaping up to be a beast; an early practice session was so vigorous, it resulted in Sam hitting the drums so hard that he busted his kick drum. “That rarely happens, even with heavy-hitters,” says Sam.

Eventually, the trio were playing with such force and volume, that a neighbor called the boys in blue on the boys in black, forcing them out of the practice space. “We ruined it for everyone,” reflects Daniel. “It seemed like you’re picking on the wrong rock band,” adds Sam with a laugh. “It’s not like we’re Mastodon. I mean, in certain circles, we’re considered wimps!”

If that was ever the case, the Interpol captured on their sixth album are nothing of the sort. While many fans took time over the last 18 months to read about the band’s vital part in New York City’s early 21st century rock renaissance, or bask in the glory of their hugely successful 15th anniversary tour celebrating the seminal 2002 debut Turn On the Bright Lights, the trio have been quietly (sorry, LOUDLY) working on making sure they’re not just a cultural timepiece for music historians to study. The result is Marauder: an album that sways as well as it seduces, that pounds as well as it pouts, and that batters as well as it broods.

They’ve had some help along the way. For the first time since 2007’s Our Love to Admire, Interpol have opened themselves up to the input of a producer. For two-week spells between December of 2017 to April of 2018, they travelled to upstate New York to work with Dave Fridmann – famed for recording with Mercury Rev, Flaming Lips, MGMT, Spoon, Mogwai, and countless more.

The New Yorkers arrived at his remote and frequently snowbound Tarbox Studios with most of Marauder tightly rehearsed and worked out. Fridmann made sure that their meticulous work in crafting a virile and visceral set of songs didn’t get flattened during recording. It was his suggestion to skip the Pro Tools, and record directly two-inch tape. “That meant there was a limitation to the amount of things you could track,” explains Daniel. “You couldn’t add more overdubs because you would have to erase something else. You couldn’t really over-think too much of it.” It’s a decision that allows a leaner and more muscular Interpol to flex throughout the album.

In the run up to writing and recording, Sam found himself immersed in soul drummers such as Al Jackson Jr (Otis Redding’s drummer) and 80’s funk producers Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis. “How can I make shit swing?” was the question Sam repeatedly asked himself, and the answer is in the striding gallop of opener “If You Really Love Nothing,” the embellished skip ‘n’ bounce of “Stay in Touch” and the R&B swagger of closer “It Probably Matters.” Interpol have always been world-beaters at creating a feeling, but Marauder is where the feel is just as crucial.  - Hardeep Phull

Snail Mail - Postcard Contest, New Fall '18 Dates



Snail Mail's debut LP Lush is out in the world this Friday, and the band begins touring today with two dates supporting Belle & Sebastian before playing a sold-out release show at Music Hall of Williamsburg on Thursday.

Beginning this week, Snail Mail will be carrying postcards on the road, free for you to grab at your local show. Fill it out with your own message or drawing, send it to the address listed on the postcard, and if Lindsey chooses your card, you'll win a box of her favorite records from the Matador warehouse. If you won't be at an upcoming Snail Mail show (I don't know what kind of tragedy would cause this to happen) but would still like to participate in the contest, the postcards will be included in Lush pre-orders and available at local indie retail stores. Lindsey will pick the winner on July 4th.



Pre-order Lush here.

Adding to an already extensive itinerary, Snail Mail has announced support of Alvvays at upcoming doubleheaders at Brooklyn's Warsaw and Toronto's Danforth Music Hall this Autumn.

Coming July 13 : Body/Head - The Switch






(photo : David Black)

On July 13, we're releasing the new album from BODY/HEAD, 'The Switch'. The duo of Kim Gordon and Bill Nace recorded their 2nd studio album for Matador last summer in Western Massachusetts with engineer Justin Pizzoferrato and the results are equal parts dizzying & intense. Summer & Autumn U.S. dates are listed below, with several of the shows in question already on sale.

stream/download "You Don't Need"
preorder 'The Switch'
Creative alchemy doesn’t just happen in the studio or in the practice space; so much of it is the product of solo time with one’s instrument, learning how body and wood and electronics fuse, and of subconscious processes as one lives one’s daily life—picking up the ambient noise of the world outside, listening to others’ work, talking through ideas with friends. For Kim Gordon and Bill Nace, time together these days is limited to live performances and recording, so they’ve got to bring all their magic to every encounter. Lucky for us, these are two experimental sorcerers of significant renown.

Their debut album together as Body/Head, 'Coming Apart', from 2013, was more of a rock record—heavy, emotional, cathartic, spellwork in shades of black and grey. T'he Switch' is their second studio full-length, and it finds the duo working with a more subtle palette, refining their ideas and identity. Some of it was sketched out live (if you’ve not had the fortune of seeing them in that natural environment yet, see 2016’s improvisational document 'No Waves'), but much of it happened purely in the moment. Working in the same studio and with the same producer as 'Coming Apart', here Body/Head stretch out, making spacious pieces that build shivering drones, dissonant interplay, Gordon’s manipulated vocals, and scraping, haunting textures into something that feels both delicate and dangerous. Less discrete songs than one composition broken up into thematic movements, a slow-moving narrative that requires as much attention and care from the listener as it did from everyone involved in its creation, it is a record that sticks around after it’s done playing.

This is Nace’s favorite of Gordon’s guitar work; she’s truly come into her own as a guitarist, having built up her confidence through solo shows. The way the duo work together, you’d never know they spend so much time apart; on 'The Switch', their vision and focus feel truly unified. If Coming Apart was dark magic, 'The Switch' works with light, though it never forgets that these approaches are two sides of the same coin, and that binaries—black/white, near/far, emotion/analysis, body/head—are made to be broken open, and that the truth of things is in the energy between.

Join us August 8–12, 2019 on the beautiful Norwegian Jade as we depart from Barcelona and make our way to Cagliari, Sardinia to spend some time on dry land with you beautiful groovers. We want to do it right. Let’s have yoga and cocktails and club nights and themed balls and crèches and quizzes and scrabble tournaments – and gigs. Gigs upon gigs from some of our good friends and favourite acts in rock ‘n’ roll across five stages throughout the ship - and instead of stumbling home to a damp tent in a dark field, saunter back to a plush bed in your own stateroom on a luxury liner. - Belle & Sebastian
