It’s really hard to do the iSotW this week because a special, special angel sent me the new Interpol release, two weeks before street date, and it’s really all I’ve been listening to. In order to not get my fabulous benefactor into trouble, however, I’m not at liberty to post any of it. Needless to day, it’s rocking my world at the moment, although I’ve only had it five days so I’m still growing used to it. I wouldn’t say it’s like either of the others but it’s interesting in its own way. That’s my way of saying I don’t love it yet. But I really like it. I’m in like with it, how about that?

The only time I’m not listening to it is when I’m doing my daily walk as it’s not exactly a “get pumped!” type of record. In that way it is like the other two Interpol CD’s. But so I decided to pull a song off my walking playlist to showcase today. It has nothing to do with Interpol. Yay! Boo! I think I reached everyone there.

This song is from the period of time Al Jourgensen pretends didn’t exist, when Ministry made the greatest imitation of British synth-pop to ever come out of Chicago. There’s nothing like really adoring a band only to have them say, “the label made us sound like that! We hate that music! Ew, let us never speak of it again.” But I’m speaking of it again. I love it and although it isn’t exactly a Hi-NRG type of song, it does happen to be perfect to walk to. The danciest song about cheating ever. But you know, when the woman chimes in, just as you would think, she knew all along. They always do.
