Interpol
Antics
(Matador)
With their second record, New York’s moodiest band moves away from the Joy Division-aping dirges of Turn On the Bright Lights and begins to find a distinctive Interpol sound. There are even sure-fire singles such as “Evil‚” with its quiet-loud dynamics, and the layered wall of sound “Slow Hands.” Most impressive is lead singer Paul Banks, who adds warmth and range to his Ian Curtis voice and imagery-laden lyrics. Antics has Interpol well on its way to being the best alternative band around.
