John Peel – remembered

By Stuart on Saturday, October 25th, 2014

Today marks 10 years since the passing of John Peel, a man who opened the BBC radio airwaves for bands and artists outside the remit of the stations “regular” programming and opened the minds of thousands listening at home to sounds they otherwise may have never heard. One of the original BBC Radio 1 DJs, throughout his 5-decade spanning career he never showed no signs of slowing down and his influence on (the good part) of modern music is immeasurable.

As a small tribute to the many Matador bands who recorded a Peel Session over the years, we’ve compiled a selection of some of the session that made it on to YouTube, (many – including The Fall, Wisdom Of Harry and Pretty Girls Make Graves – haven’t) and there’s a full archive of all the Peel sessions over at the BBC Website: http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio1/johnpeel/sessions/.

Featuring: Cat Power, Interpol, Yo La Tengo, Pavement, Belle and Sebastian, Sonic Youth, Mogwai, The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, Solex, Unsane, Arab Strab, Unwound, Guided By Voices, Superchunk, Techno Animal and Boards Of Canada.

Enjoy.

Belle and Sebastian, Interpol, Live Webcasts From the Austin City Limits Festival

By Gerard on Friday, October 10th, 2014

(for a bad time, call that number)

In the event you’ve not been pestered to death by an overzealous energy drink supplier (and I certainly haven’t — I AM NATURALLY FULLY OF EXCITEMENT FOR THE TREMENDOUS WEB OFFERINGS), you’ll wanna know that Belle and Sebastian and Interpol will have their respective Austin City Limits Festival (weekend two) sets webcast in full tonight and tomorrow night.

Friday : Belle and Sebastian, 8:30pm eastern (RetailMeNot stage — btw, it’s been more than a week and no one has explained to me if RetailMeNot is a spinoff of this company or it’s just my wishful thinking)
Saturday : Interpol, 6:30pm eastern (Honda stage. NOW HONDA I’VE HEARD OF)

If last weekend’s performances in Zilker Park are anything to go by, I am very confident you’ll be glad you ignored your families, friends and hungry pets to stream both band’s sets thru the large or small device of your choice.

This Weekend : Belle and Sebastian and Interpol at Austin City Limits Festival

By Gerard on Thursday, October 2nd, 2014

Just a reminder that Belle and Sebastian and Interpol will each be playing to what’s likely to be their biggest Central Texas audiences to date when each encounter the sprawling Austin City Limits Festival. Belle and Sebastian are playing the RetailMeNot Stage (I don’t know what that means, either) tomorow at 7:15pm, while Interpol are playing the Honda Stage (now Honda I’ve heard of!), Saturday at 4:30pm.

In addition, Stuart Murdoch will be appearing with the Barton Hills Choir, Friday at 11:15am at the Sculpture Stage. The Choir is comprised of 5th and 6th grade students from Barton Hills Elementary, and they’re promising a selection of Belle and Sebastian songs (presumably this won’t be a stretch for Stuart, but hey, you wake up in time for an 11:15am set, you can tell us all about it).

Interpol will be doing a signing at the Waterloo Records tent,  Saturday at 6:15pm.  Tickets for Interpol’s show Sunday night at Stubbs are still available.

VIDEO : Interpol – “Twice As Hard”

By Gerard on Wednesday, September 17th, 2014

We’d like to congratulate Interpol on ‘El Pintor’ entering next week’s U.S. Billboard Top 200 album chart at #7. That said, this project is very much a marathon rather than a sprint (though it’s funny how often that cliche is employed by persons who’ve neither sprinted or run marathons) and along with a new date added to the band’s massive touring schedule (see below) in Pomona, CA, today marks the release of the 2nd music video from ‘El Pintor’, the Paul Banks directed “Twice As Hard”, filmed at NYC’s Mendez Boxing. The video premiered earlier this morning via The Guardian and Boing Boing, but we’re embedding it, too (and you can do so yourself, if you like).

(photo by Eliot Lee Hazel)

On September 9, we’ll be releasing INTERPOL‘s first new album in 4 years, ‘El Pintor’ on LP, compact disc and all digital formats in North, Central and South America (Soft Limit will be handling the rest of the world). Recorded at Electric Lady Studios and Atomic Sound in New York City with engineer James Brown, the band’s fifth album – taut and epic in equal measure – finds Interpol recharged, and ready to reclaim their mantle as one of the planet’s best. ‘El Pintor’’s songs (track listing below) were written and produced by Interpol, with Daniel Kessler playing guitar & piano, Samuel Fogarino on drums, and Paul Banks on vocals, guitars, and taking over bass duties for the first time. The album also features contributions from The Secret Machines’ Brandon Curtis (keyboards), Roger Joseph Manning, Jr. (Beck, Air) playing keyboards on “Tidal Wave,” and Rob Moose (Bon Iver) playing violin and viola on “Twice as Hard.” ‘El Pintor’ was mixed by Alan Moulder at Assault and Battery Studios, and mastered by Greg Calbi.

(making of ‘El Pintor’ clip directed by Adam Levite)

‘El Pintor’ track listing :

1. All the Rage Back Home
2. My Desire
3. Anywhere
4. Same Town, New Story
5. My Blue Supreme
6. Everything is Wrong
7. Breaker 1
8. Ancient Ways
9. Tidal Wave
10. Twice as Hard

Interpol will be touring all summer, with festival performances including Governors Ball (this weekend), Lollapalooza, FYF Fest, Austin City Limits Festival, Glastonbury, and Roskilde already confirmed. They’ll be back on the road this fall with more dates to be announced soon.

Preorder from The Matador Store for an exclusive white vinyl version of the LP with alternate art, accompanied by a limited-edition 12”x12” silkscreen print on very fine cardstock (while supplies last)

Interpol – Facebook/Spotify playlist competition winner announced

By Gabe on Thursday, December 13th, 2012

We’ve selected the winning entrant in the recent Interpol Turn On The Bright Lights: The Tenth Anniversary Edition Facebook/Spotify “Where Were You In 2002″ playlist competition. Matthew Phillip Ordes took the prize for, among other things, his essential inclusion of Hot Snakes’ “Suicide Invoice” and his brazen selection of Spoon’s “Metal Detektor” from A Series Of Sneaks (an album that which came out in 1998 but, in fairness to Matthew, was reissued by Merge in ’02 – great fucking song in any year).

Matthew, look out for your sure-to-be-weird-in-all-the-right-ways video montage of Interpol drummer Sam Fogarino rocking your playlist, as well as an autographed copy of the new reissue. Everyone, here’s your winner:

(above : Daniel Kessler Recalls Interpol’s Infancy At The Site of The Former Baby Jupiter)

Persons attempting research on the late LES venue Baby Jupiter might run across a number of Health Dept. sanctions for the since shuttered Cafe Charbon-Epicerie, so we’re fortunate that Interpol’s Daniel Kessler can recall more historic times on the block. The above clip happens to coincide with today’s digital release of the expanded/remastered reissue of Interpol’s landmark 2002 debut album, ‘Turn On The Bright Lights’, hailed earlier this morning by Pitchfork’s Matt LeMay as an album that captured NYC as “a crushingly real place, rendered in such vivid emotional detail that it rings true even to those who have never set foot in the city.” Just try to make a record like that today without mentioning Duane Reade once.

The physical versions of the TOTBL 10th Anniversary Edition (hardbound book containing double vinyl + DVD, hardbound book containing double CD + DVD) will be in stores Tuesday, December 11, however, we’ve already begun shipping to mail order customers who’ve preordered..  You can still purchase either edition from The Matador Store.
