  • It would have to be ‘Slow Hands’ because that was the song that made me fall in love with their music.

  • Tim B.

    definitely Evil! (video is awesome as well)

  • Ken

    I was just listening to ‘Next Exit’, my fave!

  • My favorite one is “c’mere”

    “It should be me. Oh, it should be me.” :p

  • Tim B.

    Definitely ‘Evil’, love the video as well!

  • William Alexander

    Lights.

  • JF

    Definitely “Obstacle 1” <3

  • HANDS AWAY!

  • Scale

  • NYC

  • Holly

    THE NEW!

  • Dan O’Leary

    “Stella was a diver and she was always down”: dark but somehow uplifting at the same time.

  • Really digging “lights” of the new album!

  • Obstacle 1

  • Love the swinging (but sentimental) moods of “Evil” off the album Antics. Great song!

  • Cesar Banares

    Stella Was a Diver and She Was Always Down

  • Stephen

    Either The Heinrich Maneuver or the new Lights song, something eerie about that ritual in the music video that makes it interesting.

  • Becky

    Evil!

  • NYC!

  • Roger

    Evil is awesome. Interpol is awesome as is vancouver

  • Miakel

    “C’Mere”

  • Vince Kueter

    “The Length of Love” – It has a urgency that drives forward and pulls you along with it, the lyrics are intriguing and it swings and rocks at the same time.

  • EVIL !! E-V-I-L , in case you wondered…EVIL

  • Nigel

    C’mere

  • Jordan

    NYC! because it’s up to me now; and New York cares.

  • Carly

    PDA.
    something about 200 couches always creates thought-provoking images.

  • Sarah

    Untitled, but The Lighthouse is a close second. I walked down the isle to The Lighthouse.

  • Che

    The New.

  • Brad

    Untitled!

  • “Leif Erickson”

    beautiful.

  • Jen

    Lights is one of my favourites!

  • Jon

    Leif Erikson!

  • Jamie Mak

    Obstacle 2

  • Emily

    Leif Erikson

  • Sara

    NARC!

  • Erica Sandberg

    Antics is such a great album that several tracks have been faves over time, but recently it’s been Narc.

  • Maxwell M. Addington

    The bass and percussion on “Take You On a Cruise” (Antics) evoke the feeling of turbulent seas, then drift away, leaving a moment of silence before thrashing back in — like the calm before the storm. The distant guitars serve to conjure up images of vast, open waters.

    In all, it’s a beautiful song that shows Interpol’s craft at its finest.

  • Erica Sandberg

    Narc

  • Ed

    “No I In Threesome” which is an awesome title for a song haha.

  • Jay

    Obstacle 1 ! Brian Anderson in Yeah Right……yessssssss

  • Chasby

    Obstacle 1 simply due to how amazing it went with Brian Anderson’s part in Yeah Right!
    (my brother would be hyyped on these tickets!)

  • maria

    Next Exit

  • Laurel B

    At this very moment, “The Heinrich Maneuver”. They’re swaying hearts and belting out to us wicked west coast folks. Yeow!

  • length of love…..meow!

  • Janne

    Evil

  • derrick

    you know the one, that goes, dooo do do de do dee do doooo du doooo, wait that was joy division

  • Robbie

    ‘Say Hello To The Angels’

  • i’ve been a huge fan of interpol for years. i was literally just trying to plan a flight to go see them in january. i would be so thrilled to go!

    so hard to choose. my favourite interpol song would have to be a tie between public pervert and rest my chemistry.

  • fly tickets Buenos Aires – Vancouver includes?

  • jesse

    memory serves

  • hunter

    narc

  • My favorite Interpol song would have to be “Evil”, because the bassline is so great and I was introduced to them through this song. However I love almost all their songs and “No I in Threesome” was a close runner up too!

  • John Dumalig

    Say Hello To The Angels – I’ve only heard them from skate videos and a good friend of mine showed me this song. It blew my mind! She is now my best friend and pretend wife. Listened to it on repeat for like weeks. “Baby Baby You’re Really The Best”

  • ARIAN M.

    Interpol is of the best bands ever to nurish my ever hungry ears. My favourite is the Pioneer to the falls and close second would be The Lighthouse

  • Sam Hamer

    ‘HANDS AWAY’

  • Alex Grewal

    1.Say Hello to the Angels
    2. Slow Hands

  • Lucas M

    “Evil”

Collection of 80 High-Res Textless Movie Posters

textless-movieposters30

Not sure how this exists??? Someone has uploaded a collection of 80 high-resolution film posters stripped of any text. Can’t tell if they have next-level Photoshop skills or some other kind of voodoo that made this possible. In any case, thank you, Internet. Have a look at them all here. I included a bunch of my favourites below (there’s a common thread to the ones I picked).

*Edit – just discovered that the link I posted was actually a repost and this was originally posted by Reddit user Join_You_In_The_Sun, so I’ve updated the link in the post.

Watch: “The Junction: A-Trak & Nick Catchdubs”

Here’s episode #3 of our animated series for Red Bull Music Academy, and it’s a peek into the pop culture-filled minds of Fool’s Gold co-founders A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs. Hopefully you’ll find it to be an enjoyable mix of the absurd and the profound (would love to see these two start their own podcast).

The visuals here are a collaborative effort from animator Brandon Blommaert and illustrator Josh Holinaty. The sound design and original music were created by Luigi Allemano.

Make sure you hit full screen on the episode above or watch it nice and big over on Booooooom TV.

Stay tuned for the rest of the episodes! If you missed the first two, watch Episode #1: Chilly Gonzales and Peaches, and watch Episode #2: Kaytranada and River Tiber.
