Alt-J – ‘Something Good’
Best known by the symbol ∆, Alt-J are a British alternative indie pop quartet, formed in 2007. Their debut album An Awesome Wave was released in May 2012 in Europe, and in the United States on 18 September.
An Awesome Wave is both loved and hated by critics. If on one hand we have a review of 4.8 (out of 10) by the a specialist pitchfork, on the other hand we have a nomination for the acclaimed Mercury Prize (the album is even one of the candidates to win the award) .
The choice is yours! I would listen to this Something Good first, perhaps a proper springboard to hear the album in its entirety and have your say. If you rather prefer albums with little variations of sound from beginning to end, it’s better not to hear these songs laden with folk, rock, pop, hip-hop, indie-rock and even electronic rhythms.
