Last weekend I witnessed my favourite gig of the year. A gig upon leaving I actually sent a text to my girlfriend and said it was in my all time top 5. A few days later, I still stand by that statement. It was flawless and it came from Alt-J who played a matinee show at Manchester's Royal Northern College of Music. The room was completely seated and from start to finish they just performed in perfect sync. Midway through the set I was impressed by a mashup they did of Dr. Dre's "Still Dre" and Kylie Minogue's "Slow". It doesn't sound like it should work but it does so damn well it's crazy. Today I was happy to see they recorded a version of it for Triple J's Like a Version segment in Australia. The results can be streamed below and you can hear a version of "Breezeblocks" over here too. Hat-tip to Hypetrak for the heads up on this recording of it!
If you haven't heard their album, An Awesome Wave, yet I advise you to do so.
