Julian, we need to have a talk about your band's new album. I just don't understand what you're doing. The synths and new waviness, the extreme falsetto, the lack of guitar, and that bizarre, old timey song at the end of the record -- what's going on here?
Maybe I just love Alt-J because they make really awesome music, as they've recognized in the title of their debut album An Awesome Wave. Whatever the reason, all I know is that I can't stop listening to this album on repeat.
Good Kid, m.A.A.d city is somehow able to seamlessly tie together the world of drugs, money, and partying that is notoriously associated with hip-hop with an artful description of pain, guilt, love, and passion. It's quite refreshing.
When you spend your drive to school listening to the same album every day, you hope to one day see it performed live. Last week, I had the chance to finally see my favorite country trio, Lady Antebellum.
