After hearing the tense and elegant, classically intoned “Fragment Two,” you should be as excited as I am to hear Field Of Reeds, the new These New Puritans album that birthed it. And now you can! Such is the impulse gratifying power of the internet. Feel free to toss around genre tags to describe TNP’s new sound, keeping in mind that “post-punk” can no longer contain them. Like, the Field Of Reeds live shows are probably going to require an ensemble headed by a conductor, and so far this sounds like a great thing. Listen in:
Field Of Reeds is out 6/10 via Infectious. Pre-order at iTunes.
