Alt-J Records Live Set from TCR for KEXP

Cambridgeshire-based basement-born experimental folk quartet Alt-J stopped by The Cutting Room Studios last week to record a live set for broadcast over KEXP radio. Think Radiohead gone acoustic, with a trip-hop flare, the crew played four tracks off their debut album An Awesome Wave, including KEXP Song of the Day Fitzpleasure. Released in the UK in May of this year via Infectious Music, the album is set to drop state-side with Canvasback Music this fall so be sure to look out for the enigmatic ‘folk-step’ LP when it hits shelves September 18. In the meantime, check out some photos from the live sessions below!
