Alt-J

Alt-J (England)

OK, first things first – the band’s name originates from a keyboard shortcut on Mac – Alt-J gives you Delta. Now you know. Alt-J gives you nothing on PC, and to find the Delta you need to go into symbols and then windings3 (windings????? never mind….). Oh wait – they used to be called Films. Prince comes to mind. Oh no, sorry – the “symbol”. Or is it Prince again? I need strong coffee, brb.

OK sorry, enough band name rants (can you tell this is the first entry after Flashguns -.-)

Another band of wunderkinds – four specimens. What do people feed their children nowadays? Stops digressing.

I hear DnB influence – and that’s as far as I can go without peeking into what someone else said. The sound is very mature; these young ones know exactly what they are doing. It’s refreshing, I like it and you may, too, if similarly inclined. Their first album “An Awesome Wave” will be released end of May (Yay!).

Go to their soundcloud page to find a plethora of mixes remixes and rereremixes of various tunes. On their official site - they encourage fans to download and remix their tunes. The net world buzzeth with articles about them, go forth and read (get ready for a lot of triangles).

Their debut single Tessalate (what’s Tessalate, btw?)
