KCRW Presents: Alt-J

August 23, 2012To watch the English band Alt-J perform in KCRW's studios is to witness a band on the rise. Singer Joe Newman's relaxed delivery provides a nice complement to the band's tight instrumentation and on-point execution. Here, watch the group perform "Breezeblocks."

Watching the English band Alt-J perform in KCRW's studios, it was clear we were witnessing an artist on the rise. It was the group's U.S. radio debut, the morning after a sold-out show, and Alt-J's members were clearly confident. As the catchy potential pop hit "Breezeblocks" demonstrates, the band draws from a wide and unpredictable range of influences. An Awesome Wave is out now.

Watch Alt-J's full session on Morning Becomes Eclectic.
