∆ (Alt-J) - An Awesome Wave cover

Wow, what an album. Who are these guys? I don’t mean that in a literal sense (obviously I can use Google) but I just want to express how blindsided I was by this slice of pure jawesomeness. Thank you internet.

This is definitely one of the best records I’ve heard this year. The uniqueness, the strings, the melodies, the interludes, the depth, the maturity. It might not be for everyone but definitely give it a listen.

Lastly, do not miss the absolutely amazing video for the track Breezeblocks.
