These New Puritans

It was on, then it was off. Off and then on...

Like the cheesiest high school flick, we've been standing in the playground making eyes at this group for over three years now, hoping to be invited to sit with the cool kids for lunch. And in the finest Hollywood traditions, in the end we finally got the band (and did get to go to the dance after all). Cue credits.

The band in question are These New Puritans. We think they're out-of-the-box, genre-bending brilliance. Think you will too.

Joining TNPS on the 9th will be Montreal's finest garage duo madness The King Khan & BBQ Show. Trust us, these guys need to be seen to be believed.

It's on!

Who's got the Fever?

TPP are big fans of mixing it up. We're all for cross pollination in most facets of life. "Mix it up" we say. Mix it up good.

It's no surprise then that one of our favourite bands is LA's hybrid groove outfit, Dengue Fever. Dengue Fever's psychedelic take on the Cambodian pop sounds of the 60's makes them one of rock n' roll's most unique succes stories. They draw adoring crowds from LA to the UK, Maui to Moscow, and leave critics rummaging through their thesauruses looking for new superlatives to describe their sound. It's fair to say, they've got it going on.
