    Two words: Carlos Dengler. Seriously. His bass playing made Interpol. It's a shame that he dislikes playing the instrument.
    My god this is the most monotone and emotionless music I've heard in a long time.
    They're a bit of an acquired taste. Got close to acquiring them at "Heinrich Maneuver" but nothing interesting happened after that for me.
    Their first 3 albums are great Self titled was a step back and this doesn't seem to promising after the first 2 singles
    All The Rage Back Home was amazing. One of the best tracks of the year
    Yea… I thought that All The Rage Back Home was pointing towards a big comeback for them, but Ancient Ways is pretty lame.
