Once again the future does one thing really good: it makes it so we don't have to wait for the future to hear new music. Though Alt-J's new album isn't due out until next week, the future has made it possible for you to hear it now.
The downside is the stream is on Spotify, so by the time you actually hear any of the album it may actually be next Tuesday and you can just buy it. Spotify works okay on my phone, but I only open it on my desktop when I feel like crashing my computer.
If you manage to hear it, let us know how it is.
Alt-J will be performing at The Complex on October 27th. Get your tickets for that show here.
Their music slightly rusty, but in a good way and literary in verse. They are named after a keyboard shortcut. Their first single, "Fitzpleasure" is based on a novel called "Last Exit to Brooklyn" that isn't exactly family-friendly - nor mainstream. Somehow, beyond all those reasons many people found Alt-J to be something unique and interesting, which is not an easy feat these days. Pop music has taken over like weeds in the modern rock's garden.
Alt-J is following up their fantastic album, "An Awesome Wave" with "This Is All Yours" on September 22nd, which you can pre-order here.
