Still on the fence about this guy. Like some of his stuff. Not this, though.

Just saw Alt J live.  This band is outstanding...some of the most interesting musical creations I've heard in years.

Agreed! I like the song except for that. It gets on my nerves! Love Alt-J though.

Alt-J is still pretty new to me, and outside of Tessellate, I don't think I could name another song of theirs that I like.  I did find their NPR "tiny desk concerts" amusing, https://youtu.be/8zHdLF3-coA?t=10s - and I really appreciate their willingness to do this sort of 'gig' - maybe I'll start liking them more.  I still can't get over the feeling that they're a middle school band playing with a $100 Casio keyboard.  Maybe that's what to love about them?

I'll give this one a 6 and re-rate if/when needed.  Long Live RP!

 
From seeing them on Later with Jools Holland a while back, I can say that they have more than a Casio keyboard, though they do try to replicate a fairly 'naive' sound for all their love of electronics (the band name, I've heard, comes from a key combo on Apple's Garage Band app). The quirky voice and percussion always get my attention. Sometimes it works, sometimes not, but it's always worth listening to. As for "middle school", again going by unreliable memory, they were all students at Leeds University.
