These New Puritans, Imperial China, the.Blackout.District @ DC9 (BYT)

Bit of cross-posted action to BYT for the These New Puritans show at DC9.  A number of things conspired to drag the show down, some act of god shit, some artist fault.  Read on, intrepid reader.  Photo set courtesy of BYT’s Lexie Moreland.

Sound Off!: These New Puritans (BYT Edition)

I’m not gonna lie, These New Puritans are scratching an itch. One I never realized I had until I heard their debut Beat Pyramid a few weeks ago and it suddenly stopped bothering me…this venn-diagram-intersection-shaped gap between dub, electronic, dancehall, post-punk, balls-out indie rock, hip-hop and a dozen other genres of music.

This was originally going to be a Sound Off! piece, with an interview exclusive to us. But instead, as their show this Thursday is in DC at DC9, I decided to cover this show with BYT. So check out what I’ve got to say about TNPS here along with my interview with lead singer/mastermind Jack Barnett.

And definitely consider making the trek with me to DC9 for the show, opened by another favorite around the A.S. offices, DC’s own Imperial China.

Stick around here for this download of the track “Elvis” off their debut.
