My relationship with Interpol has been put through the ringer these past ten years, as I’m sure many others have dealt with the same feelings. After their first two albums, things started to move in the wrong direction for the band, and they’ve yet to recover from some of those mistakes. That doesn’t stop us from celebrating a record like Turn On the Bright Lights though, which turns 10 this year. To commemorate such an occasion, Matador (in conjunction with the band) are doing what so many have done before – releasing a remastered deluxe anniversary edition of the record. It is a seminal record of the early 00s, and arguably one of the ten best of the last ten years. That’s really the only reason I’m mentioning this re-release. There’s a bunch of extras that go along with the remastered version of the album, including bonus tracks, demo versions and a Peel session. I already own much of it, but if you don’t, it’s well worth owning. There’s a hardcover book that comes with the deluxe edition too, featuring glossy photos and generally nice packaging for either the vinyl or CD versions. The whole thing will be out on December 4th, just in time to buy it as a Christmas present for a young relative that doesn’t know what good music is. Please also enjoy this demo version of “Roland” as a compelling reason to buy this record for the first (or second) time. Okay, now let’s deal with Pick Your Poison stuff. Today’s delights include songs from Big Harp, Dark Colour, Frank Rabeyrolles, Midway in Wake, The Sharp Things and Warning Light. The Soundcloud section is super great today too, and you shouldn’t miss streaming tracks from Black Moth Super Rainbow, Guards, The Mary Onettes and Zola Jesus (covering Rihanna).
