EDITORS’ NOTES

On this Mercury Award-winning debut, alt-J effortlessly displays the kind of maturity it takes some bands a whole career to achieve. Blending electronics and live instrumentation, their sound borders on indie rock and folktronica while remaining wholly individual. Forming at university and practising in their halls of residence, they developed a unique approach to recording and performing due to their uni's noise restrictions. That influence remained in place as they made their first studio album, an intimate yet ambitious record, truly modern and intelligent British pop at its best.
