Alt-J are an indie four-piece currently inspiring all sorts of hyperbolic tweets from music industry people, so I figured I'd let you all have a listen to their debut album before it drops next Monday (May 28th) on Infectious Music. I saw these guys open for Ghostpoet a few months ago and have to say I wasn't overwhelmed by their live peformance. They seem to be another of those bands (and there's a post coming on this soon) who come together well on record but haven't cut their teeth live quite yet.
In any case, "Tessellate" is still a beautiful song and regardless of how awkward these guys are on stage, they can play it well. Have a listen and make up your own mind on whether they're worth the hype.
