Full album emerges online...

alt-J are streaming their debut album 'An Awesome Wave' online in its entirety - listen to it now.

Occupying the position we do, new bands are flung at ClashMusic every day - however alt-J have something special. A series of wonderful live shows and the odd beautiful single have led us to this, their debut album.

'An Awesome Wave' is set to be released on Monday (May 28th) with early reviews tipping them for glory. Clash writer Joe Zadeh was suitably impressed, writing: "Like many felt when The xx released their eponymous LP, it seemed too complete and rounded to ever be a debut. Alt-J are similarly composed. Young, yet somehow void of naivety. Vibrant, yet artistically matured. Even the naff name will slowly grow on you. More like this, please!"
