Alt-J’s debut album An Awesome Wave has quietly become one of this years most charming releases. The Leeds based band have meshed together a sound that stubbornly (but lovingly) defies simple categorisation. It’s dark and ethereal, it incorporates glimpses of Folk, it’s melodic but yet is quintessentially Electronic.
Even more interesting, their latest single ‘Fitzpleasure’ has been remixed by Odd Future’s off-shoot band The Internet and the results are pretty tasty. The L.A duo sprinkle their laid-back influence over the original vocals and bake up a nice chill-wave alternative.
An Awesome Wave is available now.
