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, “And all your friends come… (breathes in deeply and heavily through nose) …sniffing”.
