INTERPOL TURN ON THE BRIGHT LIGHTS 10TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION

Ten years ago, Interpol’s debut album seized the imagination of a generation. The spare, lean textures, darkly oblique lyrics and suave stage presence were entirely different from the bands who preceded them on the charts and the radio.

Now on November 30, we are commemorating Turn On The Bright Lights with a Tenth Anniversary Edition, fully remastered in a beautiful deluxe hardbound book with unreleased photos (48 pages in the CD, 28 large pages in the vinyl) and a second disc of bonus tracks, many unreleased, plus demos and B-sides and a DVD.

The album will be available as a double CD+DVD, double LP+DVD, and digital album with digital booklet. Preorders will come with a replica of the band’s first piece of merchandise, a button with the original Interpol logo.

KIRIN J CALLINAN MIXTAPE

A Mixtape of Incidental Instrumentals by Kirin J Callinan

“Most of these pieces were recorded after midnight & before six am. The process was, usually, to plug a guitar in direct, via a few units, to an 8 track hard disk recorder and play. I was frequently alone. When not alone I was with either Daniel Stricker, Kim Moyes, Francois Tetaz, Alice Englert, James Domeyko, Jono Ma or Chris Petro. Thank you to all concerned” – KJC

SCOTT WALKER ALBUM TRAILER

Scott Walker will finally release his long awaited fifth studio album Bish Bosch on 30 November 2012 via 4AD/Remote Control.

Today an extensive four-minute trailer for Bish Bosch was released which features snippets of several songs alongside in-studio footage. Director’s Iain Forsyth
& Jane Pollard were granted rare access to the studio to capture Scott, his co-producer Peter Walsh and some of the musicians involved in the making of the record.

With this footage, they have helped to create a unique film that uses extracts from tracks ‘See You Don’t Bump His Head’, ‘Tar’, ‘Dimple’, ‘Corps De Blah’, ‘Phrasing’ and ‘Epizootics!’ to offer a tantalising insight to this much-anticipated album. Also included in this short film are glimpses of Scott working with painter Ben Farquharson and designer Philip Laslett in the creation of the album’s artwork.
