September was a month of hotly anticipated releases. Interpol, Banks, SBTRKT, and alt-J each dropped an album. Interpol’s El Pintor is spectacular from start to finish, with the band’s dark yet stylish punk-rock sound firmly rooted in place.
Three standout songs aside, the alt-J album proved to be a bit of a dreary disappointment. It’s lacking in that original, enticing sound from their debut album. Fortunately, there was no shortage of great, new music to quickly move beyond that letdown!
