Released May 25, 2012. An Awesome Wave Tracklist. About An Awesome Wave. The charm of Alt-J’s musical scatterbrain is that it works. On the surface, this is smart alt-pop, but Alt-J have messed with the formula just enough to make this a brilliantly disquieting debut. In refusing to submit to the rigours of a genre, they might just have made themselves masters of their own. In keeping with the plethora of references to works of art, film and literature to be found in the lyrics of the album, its title is a phrase taken from the 1991 book American Psycho

An Awesome Wave is the debut album by English indie rock band alt-J, released on 25 May 2012 through Infectious. The album includes the singles ure", "Breezeblocks" and "Tessellate". It peaked at number thirteen on the UK Albums Chart, and also charted in Belgium, France, Netherlands and Switzerland. An Awesome Wave won the 2012 British Barclaycard Mercury Prize, and in 2013 was named Album of the Year at the Ivor Novello Awards.

Album · 2012 · 14 Songs. Skittering indie puzzleboxes from the new crown princes of cerebral rock. That’s the thrust of what’s so appealing about the debut album from university friends Joe Newman, Thom Green, Gwil Sainsbury and Gus Unger-Hamilton. Tessellate lures you in with sultry piano and languid electronica, "Something Good" snakes along on marching drums and "Breezeblocks" brings us the typically esoteric proposition of Maurice Sendak's Where the Wild Things Are reinvented as a shimmering pop jewel. A heady brew of book smarts and seductive beats. An Awesome Wave alt-J.

The Cambridge-based pop band's been described as "the new Radiohead," but that tag ultimately says more about lowered standards. The main claim for innovation on Alt-J's debut, An Awesome Wave, is that there's a lot going on. The notion of a male vocal that's halfway between Macy Gray and a goose gibbering over beats discarded from Eskimo Snow - era WHY? is certainly a complex notion. Sometimes they sound like Bombay Bicycle Club playing in a submarine.

Listen free to alt-J – An Awesome Wave (Intro, Interlude I and more). Named after the keystroke for making a delta (. triangle) sign on a Mac by holding down the Alt and J keys, the Leeds, England–based trio Alt-J is inspired by the symbol’s mathematical definition of change. This makes sense upon hearing the band’s handsome 2012 debut album, An Awesome Wave
