Stark Artist to Watch: alt-J

We intially came across alt-J via the below Dave Sitek remix. Something about his unique voice and intricate rhythums captivated us. After doing some more digging via his Soundcloud page we found tracks such as "Something Good," "Breezeblocks," "Fitzpleasure" and "Tessellate" (video above.) Taking equal parts Radiohead, TV on the Radio, J.Viewz and more, alt-J quickly became a mainstay in our rotation. alt-J's debut album, An Awesome Wave, will be released September 18th via Canvasback. Can't wait to hear the record and see him live at the Mercury Lounge on 8/6 and or Glasslands on 8/7.
