The Drunken Pressman

Turn On The Bright Lights

When I first received my record player, I thought the thick rumble of Interpol would be great with the sound vinyl provides by adding a natural fuzz. The baritone of Paul Banks’ voice bounces over the speakers with an electrifyingly dramatic flair that sounds moody at first, but quickly levels off when paired with the echo and feedback of the repetitive guitars and bass. A short introduction to the band, but over a decade after its release, it still holds some of my favorite Interpol songs. I’d rate this a great whiskey-drinking album.
