DOWNLOAD: Alt-J - "Fitzpleasure" (The Internet Remix) (MP3)

Alt-J at Mercury Lounge - 5/9/12
Alt-J

As mentioned, UK band Alt-J will be releasing their debut album, An Awesome Wave, on September 18 in the US via Canvasback (it's already out in the UK) and are returning to our shores next month for a run of dates which includes two (now sold out) NYC shows which happen on August 6 at Mercury Lounge and August 7 at Glasslands.

UPDATE: The band have also announced a much larger North American tour around the time of the album's release which includes another NYC show on September 12 at Bowery Ballroom. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (7/27) at noon with an AmEx presale starting Wednesday (7/25) at noon.

The band made their US debut back in May with a few shows including opening for We Are Serenades at Mercury Lounge. We've got a belated set of pics from Alt-J's set at that show, which are in this post.

If you've yet to hear the album, the entire thing is streaming below. But in more recent news, one of its standout tracks, "Fitzpleasure," was recently remixed by Odd Future's The Internet (aka Syd tha Kyd and Matt Martians). You can download that remix above or stream it below. As mentioned, The Internet are touring too, and they'll play NYC the day before Alt-J gets here at Bowery Ballroom on August 5 with Kilo Kish and Phony PPL (tickets).

More pics of Alt-J from Mercury Lounge in May, the album stream, and The Internet remix are below...

wow. really bad, should have never posted this crap. How much did they pay you guys to post this?

maybe five years ago this site was amazing. Now it seems its like a shitty LA PR person's dumping ground, where shitty bands whose have all the right williamsburg friends go to be plugged ad nauseum.

I know Odd Future is "the hot shit" right now but the fact that they are rich CA kids whos moms paid for them to be forced into the music scene is never addressed, and not a single side project has any talent beyond self promotion and complaining like little bitches.

Having all the right Williamsburg friends has nothing to do with this band - it's a UK band with *actually* a fresh sound. They worked their way here from Leeds. Great band.

If this chick keeps working hard one day she'll be able to afford an apartment in Williamsburg.
