If we learnt one thing from alt-J’s live set this week it is that we won’t be hung up on discussing their peculiar name for long. As one of the earliest entrants to 2012’s best new acts, alt-J had better get use to attention. The ambient pop four-piece wowed mac and PC users alike with a display of minimal and undeniably striking and atmospheric baroque music.
