I've been waiting to see Alt-J all summer! I have been super swamped with work, so this was a nice break.
Alt-J is definitely a different kind of sound. Most of the time I have no idea what they are saying. Only at the chorus when the beat slows down, some phrases become clear.
Before the show Lina and I were trying to sing our favorite songs however, it was impossible for the other person to guess. I can play the song so clearly in my head, but when I try to produce the same sounds it is impossible to tell what I am singing.
We had fun seeing Alt-J at the Hollywood Bowl. But I am definitely getting old. I had to sit down during the show and knocked out right when I got home. As my students would say, YOLO!
