Julian Plenti

Julian Plenti is...Skyscraper (Matador)

While Interpol's music is predictable and somewhat formulaic in its reliance on a specific 1980s aesthetic, this debut from lead singer Paul Banks is anything but. Complex, richly textured and varied, the songs range from intimate instrumental interludes to layered, spacey indie-rockers. There are few, if any, weak moments here, and Plenti solo is a much more challenging and interesting listen than anything his other band has offered. Some artists are better when they unshackle themselves from their former identity and take a few chances.
