Not sure if you´re a big fan of Alt-J or not, but I am, and last September the band released their new album This Is All Yours (available now on Spotify, by the way). My first impression? Overall good, same line with perhaps more guitars and ethnicity. And I don´t usually post two videos in a single post, but I thought this time it was worth it, watch:
While watching the video I found it visually powerful and somehow tactile… As if I could almost feel the touch of the images… Did it happen to you too or am I just nuts? And did it make you think of Woodkid´s videoclips too? Finally, something a curiosity about this video: This one above is the “Girl´s version” and there is the “Boy version”, that you can watch here.
Anyway, here my other favorite song and videoclip; Hunger Of The Pine. A sort of, how to call it… Hunger Games inspiration?
And if you´re a super geek like me and want to dig more, here you have some further information on Alt-J´s new album This Is All Yours I found on Wikipedia, and here is the band´s website with details of their new tour.

“Boucher, born in Vancouver, Canada, came to Montreal in 2006. Her experience as a performer is deeply embedded in the illegal DIY loft culture of Montreal, where Grimes was one of the prominent figures in the scene surrounding Lab Synthèse..”
“She describes her work as “the only means through which I can be fully expressive. It is both an ethereal escape from, and a violent embrace of my experience. The creative process is a quest for the ultimate sensual, mystical and cathartic experience and the vehicle for my psychic purging. Visions was conceived in a period of self-imposed cloistering during which time I did not see day-light. ”
