It was produced by onetime Friends bassist Matthew Molinar and that's the cover art above. The first single from the LP is the driving, riffy "Wall Watcher" which you can stream it below.

Alt-J at Mercury Lounge in May (more by Dominick Mastrangelo)
Big day for award nominations. The Oscars announced theirs this morning and the Brit Awards just wrapped up their ceremony for 2013 nominations, with Emeli Sandé grabbing four and Mumford & Sons and Alt-J each getting three. All three of those artists were nominated for British Album of the Year, a list that also included Paloma Faith and Plan B. If you don't know, The Brits are basically the UK's equivalent of the Grammys, though nominees are all British apart from a few "International" awards.
Jessie Ware, Muse, and Adele each got two nominations, and single-digit noms went to Bat for Lashes, The xx, Richard Hawley and The Vaccines.
The entire 2013 Brit Awards nominees list is below.
