These New Puritans
White Chords (Mordant Music Remix)
The best plan for this Saturday: seeing These New Puritans with the Britten Sinfonia at London’s Barbican, with Darkstar opening for them. Do you feel like going? Those unable to make it to London (or any of the other three cities in which TNP will be performing with the orchestra in the last part of this year) will have make do with the remixes of some of the songs on the bewitching “Hidden” (Domino, 2010). 15th November will see the release of a 10” entitled “Hidden Remixes”, about which we told you here. And no, this remake by Baron Mordant, a dark magician specializing in electronic conjuring, with hauntological influences (he blends library music, retro analogical electronica, arcane folk, dubstep detritus and techno deconstruction) and the boss of Mordant Music, won’t be included here. Shall we forgive him the mistake?
