muscle to muscle and toe to toe the fear has gripped me but here i go
- Who: Gwil, Joe, Gus, Thom
- What: Jagged alt-pop, like Everything Everything, Menomena, Foals
- Where: Leeds, UK + Facebook
- When: LP An Awesome Wave is out now.
- Why: If you can forgive the pretentious name (the keyboard commands to get the ∆ symbol) and like your rock a bit sideways, spastic, and highly infectious then this is your jam. It damn well is mine. The song is journey through machine gun percussion bursts and yelpy vocals to the instant singalong outro. A couple other Alt-J jams are making the internet rounds these day but nothing beats “Breezeblocks.” Don’t miss the video. No surprise but things get a bit twisted.
