Since I wasn't near my turntable this week, that doesn't mean that I'm not listening to good shit. The lead single from alt-J's 2014 album, This Is All Yours is an exercise in chill. Not too dissimilar from Washed Out in their style, but radically different in the way that alt-J handles electronic music. This song is just grazing the tip of a very big iceberg with these guys. If I can ever track this down on vinyl, this will be a HUGE pick for this blog. Until then, I'm going to keep crate digging till I get my hands on this. (Probably have to buy it in a DJ record store) Speaking of which, I highly recommend Gramophone Records in Chicago. Man, the amount of Beastie Boy's records I could have and by all rights should have bought the day I was there is just staggering.

Perhaps I'll have a proper update this weekend. Till then, keep spinning.
