Listen to Interpol frontman Paul Banks’ rap mixtapeBy Matt Miller | January 25th, 2013 | No Comments »
Bet you never thought you’d be listening to Interpol frontman Paul Banks‘ rap mixtape. Even if you somehow had the really weird fantasy of a Paul Banks rap mixtape, then there’s no way you would have imagined it’d be called, “Everybody On My Dick Like They Supposed To Be.” If this was a dream of yours, then wow, you’re creative, your wish has come true and you can listen to the mixtape here.
Probably the oddest thing about this is that about four minutes in you hear Talib Kweli rapping, then about 10 minutes in you hear Banks singing, and, you know what, none of it is half-bad. The album is a collage of ambient vocals, some straight-forward hip-hop beats and hints of a dark, art-rock, Interpol atmosphere. Really, most of it is more experimental electronic music rather than rap. What does it all mean? Who knows, but it’s only a little over a half-hour long and totally worth a listen just out of sheer curiosity.
