Interpol - Marauder

Marauder by Interpol

Interpol’s last attempt at experimenting, their 2010 self-titled, face planted. During the recording of that record the band’s bassist Carlos Dengler left the group and the three remaining members salvaged what they could from those sessions. It’s not a terrible album, it just doesn’t hold up alongside the rest of the group’s discography. El Pintor, […]

Looking for a great "Hallowindie" Mix

Hello, Imaginary World. I make a point out of living up Halloween each and every year. My annual tradition is to create a Halloween mix CD- not one of those clichè ones with "The Addams Family Theme" and "Monster Mash", but a really good, unique one.

Best of 2007: imaginary stella's picks

Interpol: Keeping it Indie

In an effort to regain their indie cred after selling records enough records to buy their own homes (the nerve!), Interpol release a 6-song live release (recorded from their July 2007 performance at London's Astoria) that will be sold exclusively through independent music stores today. Here's the full scoop: New York City's own Interpol will […]

Interpol rally strong

Show Date: October 18, 2007

Before the Interpol show even took place, I was a little peeved. The universe was throwing in my face the fact that I’d purchased pre-sale tix, full-price, thinking surely they’d sell out and I’d be grateful to have them. Not so. It seemed everywhere I went, I heard offers for half-price – or even free […]

Last night: Tullycraft! Interpol! The Pogues! WINDSTORM 2007! C'mon, spill some scoop

Last night not only had three of the most tempting live shows I've heard in quite awhile (Tullycraft! Interpol! The Pogues with Shane McGowan!), but also had the most dire weather warnings of the season, at least here in Seattle. Did you brave the elements and wander out to hear music? If so, who did […]
