|This is me. Wwww-HUH?|
Now you know what I am experiencing at this very moment as I listen to the Portuguese band, Uni_Form. I am utterly confused. You see, Mookie and I have been discussing buying tickets to an upcoming Interpol show. Since there is music playing 24/7 at Mookie's house, even when we sleep, I assumed what I had been hearing was the new Interpol album. If they have a new album. I just assumed. Sometimes I just go with it. I rarely go check his computer to see what we're listening to.
But today, I decided to sit myself down at Mook's workstation and try to eat the scraps of some leftover Thai food while I check out what he has that's new, and write my post for this week. Based on a quick click of a random track, I thought this Mirrors album sounded like a winner.
It took me until Track 2 to drop my mouth and say... What??!! I swear, I checked from screen to screen to verify this band I was researching was the same as the band playing in iTunes and NOT Interpol. Wow. THAT'S what I thought was Interpol? They are from PORTUGAL! They are singing in English! They sound EXACTLY like Interpol!
I had to take another moment.
I don't like bands that sound exactly like other bands.
I do like discovering new, international bands.
I don't know what to do.
But Interpol... I couldn't even name you a band member. I like Interpol because they have that dark, dramatic sound that you can play while doing... well, anything dark and dramatic. So... Does it matter who is playing it? Am I offending Interpol? Shit. Look, what do I know?
I found some of their videos and I am telling you, if you watch them perform you will totally hear and see that accent.
I'm left once again having no idea what to do with myself. I hope Mookie gets home soon.
In the meantime I can't believe we thought this was Interpol. Now do with it what you will.
