Hear alt-J’s Follow-up To Mercury Prize Winning Debut

The British band alt-J has just released their second album This Is All Yours. They released their first An Awesome Wave in 2012 at a time when they were not that far removed from being a kind of “hobby “ band at Leeds University where they met. That album, despite its off-kilter, intricate songs, proved to be both a critical and popular success. It won the 2012 Mercury Prize top honors for the best album from the UK that year. The original quartet recently became a three-piece with original bassist Gwil Sainsbury opting to leave the band. We’ll find out how success sits with the band and hear the new songs live today.
