With their debut in 2012, the alluring patter of alt-J’s folk-driven electronic pop compelled a rabid fan base and won the band accolades with the dainty emotional progression they conjured on lead single “Matilda,” which was a little more subtle but just as powerful as Bon Iver’s smash hit “Skinny Love” five years earlier. Alt-J is more than one hit, obviously (their debut, An Awesome Wave, won the Mercury Prize in 2012). They returned last year with sophomore release This Is All Yours, an album that feels like a gripping drama with so many sonic twists. It’s a rad shock to much of ambient pop’s more wishy-washy system.
