This latest track from Alt-J’s upcoming album is the most interesting and captivating of the bunch. While the first track, “Hunger Of The Pine” was a moody, rather minimalistic slow-burner, and the second track sounded like it would fit right in on any of the Black Keys’ most recent albums, this new single, “Every Other Freckle,” recalls the playful, freeform, but still darkly mysterious and otherworldly energy of some of the standout tracks from their debut album, such as “Breezeblocks” and “Something Good.”
I’m excited to hear the album as a whole. It sounds like it’s shaping up to be quite an unpredictably delightful experience. Alt-J’s new album, “This Is All Yours,” is set to be released on September 22. You can pre-order it here and stream “Every Other Freckle” below.
