An Awesome Wave
Its 13 tracks breathes new life into the nu-folk genre with an intriguing but accessible series of art rock twists and turns. Alt-J's wave is far more awesome when it's at its most schizophrenic.
"Fitzpleasure" fizzes along with its dubstep-lite beats and acidic basslines before it's interrupted, first by a burst of jangly post-rock and second by the kind of shimmering guitar twangs you'd expect from a Tarantino soundtrack.
