On the recommendation of The Strokes

On the recommendation of The Strokes, I recently bought the new Interpol album, entitled Turn On the Bright Lights. Boy, am I not disappointed. The music ranges in style a bit but overall, these guys are very talented musicians — bringing in 80s and 90s influences into original and smartly catchy pop songs. In fact, Interpol is a kind of perfect combination of some of my favorite 80s and 90s bands, including:

  1. Echo and the Bunnymen
  2. The Smiths
  3. The Flaming Lips
  4. The Stranglers
  5. Talking Heads
  6. The Shins
  7. Sonic Youth
  8. My Bloody Valentine
  9. Psychedelic Furs
  10. Galaxy 500
  11. Luna
  12. And You Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead
  13. Belle and Sebastian
  14. Yaz
  15. The Fall
  16. Pavement
