This Is All Yours - alt-J

It’s all theirs to do as they please

Alt-J’s debut An Awesome Wave was more than a watch-this-space kind of deal, it was a complete package that established them as one of this decade’s most masterful and eccentric bands, and it won them the Mercury Award, a prestigious UK music prize even Radiohead hasn’t won. 632 more words

Album Review: Half Japanese - Overjoyed

In a way, there’s a lot about Half Japanese that reminds you of England’s quintessential outsiders The Fall. Trading in the DIY for more than 40 years, at a time when bands relied on record companies and studios and advances and the like to make records, brothers David and Jad Fair were doing the whole thing in their bedrooms, making spiky art-punk that in turn inspired the likes of Kurt Cobain (who name checked them in his top 50 artists) amongst others. 514 more words
