Enough ideas to keep even the hungriest alt-J fan happy until album three.

Enough ideas to keep even the hungriest alt-J fan happy until album three.

Label: Sudden Records
Released: August 19th 2016
Rating: ★★★

It’s not as if alt-J are the most straight down the line of bands. For a set of legitimate festival headliners, they’re more than happy to head to the leftfield. Drummer Thom Sonny Green rather likes it out there, it seems. So much so he’s struck out alone, with an album of instrumental electronica.

Not exactly the kind of faire for those who struggle to get beyond ‘Left Hand Free’, once the immediacy of vocal hooks are cast aside, his debut ‘High Anxiety’ is a rewarding listen. Coming in at a mammoth 21 tracks, there are enough ideas to keep even the hungriest alt-J fan happy until album three. Richard Davies

Feelin' hypersonic: Sam Fender

Sam Fender is a man on a mission. Already beating current ‘biggest noise on the block’ Lewis Capaldi to a Brit Award, as his debut album nears its much-anticipated arrival, the sky really is the limit for an artist not short of stuff to say.
