Throwback Thursday: Alt J Live At The Cutting Room
  • THURSDAY, DECEMBER 11, 2014

It continues to get colder, at least here in New York, it continues to get much much colder. Last week we threw you back to warmer climes, the arid desert of Coachella and a simmering poolside alternative pop session with Foals. Well, that was last week; this week it snowed. I've summoned the emerging gods of suffocatingly hot liquid strange, Alt-J.

There is no classifying the gentle torrents of Alt-J. "Sultry" skims right over the experimental strangeness of their composition, and "steamy" implies a gaseous thinness that misrepresents the heartiness of their sound entirely. Alt-J is a tidal wave humid rock. Our 2012 session with the band is an absolutely top notch performance from the band. Presented by KEXP, and recorded at The Cutting Room Studios, the band delivers a technically flawless rendition of a handful of burners off their debut album An Awesome Wave.

#TBT to that time the original four members of Alt-J started with "Tesselate," moved through "Fitzpleasure," and "Bloodflood," and closed with a sick sultry psych rendition of "Breezeblocks." Get warm.
