Interpol, a generation older, returns to sleek gloom

The US music group Interpol performs in Bourges, France, on April 26, 2003When Interpol released its first album of dark but refined rock, the iPod had just been born, Facebook didn’t exist and many fans still discovered bands at small, smoky clubs. As the New Yorkers head on tour to promote their fifth album, “El Pintor,” guitarist Daniel Kessler believes that Interpol came of age at just the right time — when bands could hone a sound and craft a full record, to be bought in stores instead of instantly downloaded by the single. We came as the digital age was upon us but we didn’t really benefit from it in the early days at all,” Kessler told AFP in the lobby of a plush hotel in Manhattan’s Bowery, still a dicey neighborhood when Interpol was starting in nearby clubs. On “El Pintor,” Interpol sets the album’s tone immediately with the aptly titled opening track, “All the Rage Back Home.” The song starts gently with Paul Banks’ melancholy voice, before a sudden thrust into slam-danceable post-punk as Sam Fogarino’s drums bring the song to a furious finale.

The queen will keep her Balmoral estate in Scotland, the royal family's traditional summer-vacation destination. (AP Photo/Martin Cleaver, File)LONDON (AP) — Queen Elizabeth II has made her first comments about this week’s Scottish independence vote, urging Scots to “think very carefully about the future.”
