The one band that completely blew my mind this year is Alt-J. There is a ton of hype happening with them right now, and I am praying commercial radio does not get their grubby money sucking dream killing dirty full of poop hands on this band and pull a Gotye ..... meaning ruin anything cool and original by playing it so much that people can no longer stand to hear it. I do believe, however, that the hype is well deserved ...... Alt-J is amazing! They are the kind of band you wait a lifetime for - they are the reason I sit through hundreds of bands to find something like them - they are the reason I love music!
Their new song "Buffalo" is a new track we just unveiled as part of the soundtrack for Silver Linings Playbook, David O. Russell's new film. It's brilliant!! Their debut record "An Awesome Wave" is out now - not getting this record is the worst mistake you could ever make!
