GUYS HAVE YOU HEARD THE NEW ALT-J?????????????
I've just gotten new headphones and listening to this song biking through the sweet 8 am sea breeze with ear buds that actually work is epiphanous!
The newest album from the Leeds based band, entitled Relaxer, is eloquently orchestral and genius. The melodic voice of Joe Newman will either sing you to sleep or revive you completely. It's peaceful but at times groovy, like most of Alt-J's music, but certainly no predictability from song to song. At the start of the summer, I feel like this album gives me a surge of energy, ready to jump into the new season. Ready to embrace all things new with the sort of feeling one has when they try a new flavour of ice cream that's out of this world.
Favourite songs include: 3WW, Adeline, Deadcrush, and my personal choice, Pleader, which is below.
