Purity is a project composed of members of Behavior and P22. It takes the form of a cover band with a limited repertoire.

Using tuneless female vocals, dry bass lines, and throwback drum machine patterns, "Live in Los Angeles" is vaguely danceable, vaguely angry, super-weird and really well thought out.

This LP of surprising and confusing covers of peace punk, new wave, and hardcore songs, originally released in 2016, represents their live set, which has been repeated in different venues with regularity since 2014.

The performance is populated by a suite of songs that illustrate some hereditary relationship to a certain subgenre of rock and roll, played over a modestly danceable drum track.

Repetition is key here, as is genre, context, being looked at, standing around, etc.
