Every Other
ALT-J – This Is All Yours (Infectious)

Alt-J have a lot to prove, following their Mercury Prize-winning ‘An Awesome Wave’, but on the whole I reckon that they’ve pulled it off. You might think, after listening to ‘Intro’ and ‘Arrival In Nara’ that they’ve lost the plot, but the whole album is a grower and you need to give it time to worm its way into your affections. Truly alternative music isn’t supposed to be instantly accessible, so be patient.
