Leeds, England–based quartet Alt-J traffics in a distinct sound, combining clever songwriting and colorful, jazzy instrumentation with world beats and skittering drops for a quirky brand of alt pop. The band's Mercury Prize–winning debut, An Awesome Wave, made a big splash in 2012, and now Alt-J's back with sophomore effort This is All Yours. Catch it here while you can; next year, it'll take on MSG.
