Alt-J - 'Matilda'

Live Lounge-sessioncore fronted by a duck on Rohypnol

Alt-J aren’t really called Alt-J, they’re called ∆, which is apparently what happens when you hold down Alt + J on a Mac computer. Not that I would know or anything, because I’m a PC and therefore fucking loathe Macs. So, ∆, now that you’ve got our attention, what is it you wanted to hear? That ‘Matilda’ sounds like Live Lounge-sessioncore fronted by a duck on Rohypnol? Did Steve Jobs die for nothing?
