These New Puritans seem to have a sound for every album, this new track sounds like the new album could be another signature. Out of the darkness of Hidden comes Fragment Two, an almost triumphant track, by their standards anyway.
Field of Reeds is out June 10th.
This is loud and messy and good. Get the tape here:
Reminds of the early Guards songs, the EP is good as well
Technology site, The Verge, says the album is going to be rescued by the new Daft Punk album, well they’ve just fell into the marketing hole, haven’t they.
Firstly I can’t believe how much hype Daft Punk are getting for their new album. Yes it will be good, yes I’ll play it do death but it probably won’t be my favourite this year, and it certainly won’t be the best album ever. Human After All isn’t career defining is it? Obviously Homework is a great album but what I’m saying is that Daft Punk aren’t this super power sent down from some musical God to change our outlook on music.
They played an advert at Coachella last week and the festival might as well not have happened. I didn’t read of how good this band or that band were 1. We just heard how there’s a new clip of a new Daft Punk song, it wasn’t even all of it! This week there have been cuts and mixes by bored souls trying to recreate the full track, are these people being payed to do this? Is it just an elaborate marketing ploy. Maybe there isn’t even an album.
Anyway the album isn’t dead. Vinyl sales are growing year by year. Vinyl is surely the rawest form of the album. It makes you sit down and listen, not to be just noise in the background. If the album is dead Daft Punk won’t be resurrecting it.
We did hear how bad The Stone Roses were though. ↩
I just listened to this and thought it was well worth a post. Childhood’s End is an emotive track with the the broodiness often associated with Wild Beasts. The lyrics are as expected about the depression of growing older, with mentions of loneliness death it’s hardly the most uplifting track,its just honest.
The album, Impersonator, is out May 27th on Matador.
