Oh. Good. Lord.
On Monday I got the new alt-J album and instantly fell deeply, irrevocably in love with it. It has been on repeat ever since. You absolutely need to buy it! It will make your life infinitely better I promise.
In case you haven't heard of them, alt-J are an amazing band from Leeds here in the UK and they make music that is so beautiful it almost hurts me to listen to it. The first time I heard the whole album I thought I might burst with my love for it. Reccommendations don't really come much higher than that. It's difficult to describe because it's quite unusual, but I suppose it has elements of folk mixed with a little MGMT, some guitars resembling The Cure, a hint of Bon Iver... awesome indeed.
I was meant to be on holiday this week but I have so much work on that it hasn't really worked out that way! I managed to spend the entire weekend between the beach, the pool and the trampoline and felt so good because of it that I don't even mind that I now have a heap of orders to catch up on (thanks to all of you lovely people!). So I am now sitting putting kits and samples together whilst alt-J keep me company. It hardly feels like work.
