Puritanical

It's a grey Monday morning and a window has opened for a timely re-entry into the blogosphere to catch up on recent happenings. I wanted to mention a great gig I went to a couple of weeks ago, These New Puritans at Bush Hall in Shepherds Bush, London. Their new album 'Hidden' is an innovative beast, a rousing soundscape of electronic rhythms, massive drums, children's choirs and woodwind/brass instrumentation which is at once futuristic and ancient. It was reproduced to wonderful effect live on the night with the woodwind/brass section, huge drum and chains all present and correct. It was unlike anything I've seen or heard for quite some time. Inspiring stuff.
