2014 was a landmark year for the English indie rockers from Leeds. Rolling Stone ranked their sophomore studio album, This Is All Yours, number twenty-seven on their Albums of The Year list and TIME ranked it number three. Also, it was placed on NPR’s Favorite Albums of 2014. Furthermore, the record was nominated at the 57th Grammy Awards for Best Alternative Music Album and also for IMPALA’s European Independent Album of the Year Award. These numerous accolades have been well deserved.
The band’s debut album An Awesome Wave sold over a million units worldwide and was the 2012 Mercury Prize winner. Suddenly, the band was put in a position where their sophomore follow-up was excitedly anticipated. The majority of This Is All Yours was conceptualized and written while the band was on their An Awesome Wave tour. The band’s sound has been classified as experimental art rock and electronica. This Is All Yours is musically varied – both with introspective ballads and also no frills, body movement dance tracks. Standout cuts include, ‘Hunger of the Pine’, ‘Warm Foothills’, ‘Arrival in Nara’, ‘Nara’, ‘Leaving Nara’ and ‘Every Other Freckle’. Their complex compositions are beautifully hypnotic. 2014 was also an important year for alt-J, as the band went from a four-piece team to a trio when Gwil Sainsbury made his departure in January. The breakup was amicable, and alt-J continues to coalesce and refine their sound.
