NPR First Listen Live: Alt-J

Posted by WVIA Admin on

Tuesday, September 2nd at 9pm

Join NPR Music for a First Listen Live of Alt-J's new album, 'This Is All Yours', due out Sept. 23. This is a live concert from Le Poisson Rouge in New York City

A unique band with a sound that's hard to pin down, alt-J makes music that's electronic but somewhat folky; it's got elements of dub but isn't exactly danceable. At a time when it's difficult for musicians to set themselves apart, alt-J has created a truly fresh, unpredictable sound. An Awesome Wave, the band's 2012 debut, won a well-deserved Mercury Prize and spawned appearances at Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Coachella and the Glastonbury Festival in 2013. So how does the British band face a potential sophomore slump? It's simply gone and made another beautiful and strange record that sounds like alt-J and nobody else.
