–Featured Release: Alt-J: “RELAXER”

Image result for alt-j relaxer

Genre: Indie-Rock/Experimental // Label: Canvasback/ATL

Background:

Alt-J have become one of indie-rock’s surging experimental acts, thanks to their extremely well-received debut An Awesome Wave as well as their more divisive – but equally impressive – sophomore effort This Is All Yours.  If the singles are any indication, RELAXER will further the band’s legacy as innovators within their genre, expounding upon the brand of downtempo art-pop that illuminated sections of 2014’s This Is All Yours.  It feels like a defining moment for a band that continues to stretch the confines of its own comfort zone, joining a rather exclusive arena of indie’s most respected, forward-thinking artists.  Sink into the record’s lead single, ‘3WW’, for a taste of what is on the horizon.

Listen to Alt-J’s “3WW”:
