If you’ve been following Interpol news, you know they’ve gone through a lot lately; the Creators’ Project now brings us an intimate documentary about what makes this band work, no matter the line-up. In an insightful long-form interview, guitarist Daniel Kessler and singer Paul Banks reflect on their image, their history, their latest self-titled album and their approach to their art. Interpol will collaborate with The Creators’ Project again during this year’s Coachella festival; keep your eyes and ears open for that.
Meanwhile, you can view the 20-minutes documentary, “Interpol on Interpol” HERE.

MGMT. You’ve won. After personally being a bit skeptical about the upcoming record Congratulations (Columbia), I think this morning was the deciding factor. The glam clad boys have released the first video from the record for “Flash Delirium.” It’s not overly flashly for once. It’s artsy, and really brings the song to a new level. Ben Goldwasser finally comes into his own as an actor (haha) as Andrew VanWyngarden plays the sidekick to his creepy “Welcome Home,” party. It’s just not right to reveal everything in the video, because then it would ruin everything, right?
Take a peak HERE AND WATCH!
Congratulations is due out April 13th.
