Ahead of Interpol's sold out show in the First Avenue mainroon on Nov. 14 (and the massive upstate New York snowstorm that's led them to be cooped up in their tour bus for two days straight), Sam Fogarino and Daniel Kessler of the band stopped by The Current studios to record a Theft of the Dial with host Barb Abney.

Between songs Sam and Daniel chatted with Barb about Aphex Twin's discography and how it's stood the test of time, why Kurt Vile's music is perfect for a sunny Sunday morning (or afternoon in the case of Rock the Garden 2014) and what they love about the juxtaposition of Alan Sparhawk and Mimi Parker's vocals on Low's "Silver Rider."


Interpol - "All the Rage Back Home"
Aphex Twin - "minipops 67 [120.2][source field mix]"
Blonde Redhead - "Dripping"
Kurt Vile - "Baby's Arms"
David Bowie - "Sound and Vision"
Low - "Silver Rider"
Modest Mouse - "Parting of the Sensory"
Interpol - "Everything Is Wrong"
