Named after the Apple hotkey assigned to the triangle symbol, Alt-J is becoming one of the most exciting bands for me to listen to lately. Gaining popularity with their singles, “Tesselate” & “Breezeblocks”, this English art-rock band makes intriguing music full of haunting breakdowns and powerful returns. Today’s pick is my personal obsession from this album. Starting out with vocals, this song breaks heavy at about the 0:27 mark. Throughout the whole song, you can’t quite tell, but you know something is off, and never has this been more evident than by the accompanying video. Much like their music, the video is about the details and weirdness populating the world around. Despite this being their debut album, their sound is very developed and quite complex. Alt-J is easily one of my top 20 bands for 2013.
