New These New Puritans – “Elvis,” “Swords Of Truth,” And “Numbers” Live @ Antone’s

One of our favorite sets of SXSW was These New Puritans’ post-punk ass-kicking at Antone’s. We liked it so much, we shot a video of “Elvis.” Just about two months later, we have audio tracks from the show that have been mixed down so that we can now relive the night in an even more pristine glory. The three tunes are the aforementioned “Elvis,” the appropriately chainmailed “Swords Of Truth,” and “Numbers.” If you haven’t, uh, Fall-en for the young Brits before, this just might convert you.
