Putting their own indelible vocals on the songs are, amongst others, Grammy-nominated US hip hop high flyer GoldLink , platinum-certified Parisian rapper Lomepal , Berlin powerhouse Kontra K, Dublin-born breakthrough rapper Rejjie Snow , Australian auteur Tuka , Puerto Rican rapper PJ Sin Suela and London’s acclaimed Little Simz.
The project was first hinted at last month when Virginia Beach hip hop superstar PushaT and LA synthpop polymath Twin Shadow both joined alt-J for a surprise performance of In Cold Blood on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, before swiftly releasing the studio version of the collaboration. A second track is debuted today, a new version of Deadcrush reworked by legendary producer The Alchemist and Latin American production powerhouse Trooko, and featuring the unmistakable vocals of hip hop iconoclast Danny Brown.

STAFF COMMENTSBarry says: Blissful pastoral electronica would not be something I would have expected from Thom of Alt-J fame, but here it is in all it's glory. Woozy synths and sustained pads mix with perfectly pitched percussion and languid leads. Triumphantly constructed melodies and hazy ambience. Beautiful stuff.

The buzz has followed them across the pond, with NME, XFM and Radio 1 all onboard, giving airtime love to their debut ‘Feels Like 37’ and a tangible electricity in the air in anticipation of this mini album.
International festival slots await and with an peerless live reputation, stardom is surely set to swiftly follow. Armed with a stack of radio bothering guitar led tunes and bolstered by swagger, their unshakable self-belief is more than well placed.
‘TNP: Expanded (Live at The Barbican)’ captures the incredible performance from 2014 of These New Puritans performing with a full orchestra at The Barbican Centre.
“Joined by an orchestra and the spellbinding Portuguese fado singer Elisa Rodrigues, the brothers Barnett capture the beautiful, foreboding majesty that marks their music” - The Guardian
Interlude I (The Ripe & Ruin)
Hand-made (Hidden Track)
This eclectic album will appeal to fans of Radiohead, Arcade Fire and Wild Beasts, amongst others.
STAFF COMMENTSAndy says: This is a ridiculously good debut album. It's angular, arty and complex but....wait for it: CATCHY! The playing and production are astonishing, and the way they combine so many flavours: distorted, dub step-tinged FX-laden bass, r'n'b grooves, acapella folk, glitchy electronica, and of course, angular, arty guitar pop, yet still make it cohesive, is a mind-boggling achievement. This delightful cacophony is topped off by Joe Newman's slurry and far-ranging, emotive vocals, (a more guttural Wild Beasts) which glide and swoop over the dizzying sounds beneath.
They've been compared to Radiohead in that they're obviously brainy, embracing technology, and are really talented players, but I think it's mainly because Alt-J are going to be massive!? With their meticulously crafted sound, and unpredictable swerves, maybe Everything Everything spring to mind, and for their rootsy, folksy side, perhaps Fleet Foxes, but really this band are in a genre of one: the best new British band of 2012!
