I have been going sort of nuts over Hidden, the new These New Puritans album, which is set to be released by Domino on March 2nd. I wasn't familiar with the band until recently, but now I'm hooked and will be forced to sniff out their first release, Beat Pyramid, as well.  The first single off of Hidden is called "We Want War," and happens to be my favorite song off of the album.
