Live in session for 6Music...
These New Puritans

These New Puritans have recorded an enthralling live session with 6Music presenter Marc Riley - check out the results below.

These New Puritans are one of the most fascinating, idiosyncratic and downright confusing entities in British music. Third album 'Field Of Reeds' emerged earlier this year, and saw the band fuse an interview in avant garde classical composition with alt rock and electronics.

Receiving widespread critical acclaim, the album failed to reach the shortlist of the Barclaycard Mercury Prize in somewhat mystifying circumstances. Not to matter, though, as These New Puritans have the small matter of what could be their final UK tour to complete, with the shows opening tonight (October 15th).

To coincide, These New Puritans dropped past 6Music presenter Marc Riley's show for a quick live session. Breezing through 'Fragment Two' and 'Organ Eternal' the band then dug out old warhorse 'Attack Music'.

Orchestral grime with IDM flourishes, it's a fascinating re-working which displays all the venom of the original. Listen to it below.

These New Puritans are set to play the following shows:

15 London Electric Brixton
17 Glasgow Oran Mor
18 Gateshead Sage
19 Leeds Belgrave Music Hall
