Alt-J Go Acoustic

Alt-J getting shaved, August 2012

Never heard of Alt-J? Well that’s okay, because they are one of the bands you should keep your ears open to. The UK-based band have been having a year that most would hope and wish for. Their album, An Awesome Wave, was released just last year and already won a Mercury Award (think the British version of the Grammys) and have even embarked on sold out tour, topped the charts and even made it to super huge festivals Coachella, Bonnaroo and SXSW a few month back.

Today, the band have released an acoustic version of their song, “Bloodflood” which was originally a single of theirs from 2011. The original was heavier and creepier while this version takes it down a notch with its a capella use.

You can head right here to Rolling Stones’s website to hear the new version of the song.
