We told you Interpol frontman Paul Banks grew a questionable bad teenage mustache (Carlos D envy?) and recorded a solo album as Julian Plenti. The reportedly “cocky” and “sexy” collection, titled Julian Plenti Is… Skyscraper is out this August via Matador. And hey, the dark, stuttering, and texturally ambitious electro-rocking lead track “Fun That We Have” is sorta cocky and sexy. It’s not quite Big Black, no, but it definitely finds Banks on a ballsier tear than recent Interpol outings. Plenti good. Or at least better than expected.
