Interpol is morose, but they are also defiant, they are frenetic, they are despondent and daring, colored both with gloom and glory. They build a long dark tunnel, but they also show the glimmer of light at its end. With El Pintor, their fifth album, they have smoothed out the edges, left behind the contrived roughness of their self-titled fourth album, and let more of that light in. The result is lean, composed and driven, a 40 minute dose of music that has more wisdom than angst, that is interested in the sounds of destruction, but pays equal attention to the act of rebuilding: this is post-punk with the emphasis on post, on looking back, but also forward.

Senate Republicans defend billionaires by keeping Citizens United alive

azspot:

By a straight party-line vote of 54-42, the U.S. Senate defeated a constitutional amendment today that would have overruled the awful Citizens United decision.

All five Senate Democrats whose support was unknown ended up voting “yes,” whereas even Republican Susan Collins voted “no.”

Please take note for when you when you head to the voting booth in November.

I’ve made several reporting trips to Scotland over the last few months, looking at different aspects of the debate. Here are links to some of the stories you may have missed:

Not a bad round up:
