Alt-J - 'Tessellate'

A pleasingly creepy slice of brilliance

Alt-J - 'Tessellate'

Album Info

  • Release Date: July 16, 2012
  • Producer: Infectious
In which the ultimate Devendra Banhart soundalikes roll on with ‘Tessellate’, the most Devendra Banhart of all Alt-J songs. Doesn’t matter though, ’cos its piano lollop is as pleasingly creepy as all their other stuff, helped by the superbly delivered line, “[i]And all your friends come…[/i] (breathes in deeply and heavily through nose) [i]…sniffing[/i]”.

[i]Tom Howard[/i]
