Few live touring acts give us the feels like British electronica group Alt-J do today. Comprised of singer Joe Newman, drummer Thom Sonny Green, and keyboardist Gus Unger-Hamilton the English trio have been melting hearts and faces around the world since 2007 (Hope all is well with you, Gwil Sainsbury).
On June 2nd the guys released their 3rd studio album Relaxer to fantastic critical and public acclaim. The 8-tracker retains the same garage-indie-rock style that the band become famous for while straying into newer territories of sound heard in seedy underground of the world. Relaxer is their first album to feature guest vocals; and given that they are from Wolf Alice‘s Ellie Rowsell and Maricka Hackman, they couldn’t be more welcome.
To celebrate the release of their new album and subsequent national tour we wanted to do something special. The LA leg of their show ends 8/10 at the Shrine. In honor of the album’s title Relaxer we’re asking you to post a picture on our Facebook, Twitter, snail-mailbox, high-school locker, etc. of you in your place of relaxation. It can be anywhere you find your center whether it be meditating on a mountaintop or simply listening to your favorite podcast during your morning commute (Don’t text/call/anything-but-drive and drive!). We have 5 pairs of tickets to giveaway to the best photos! Be sure to tag @ShrineLA @controlaltdelight and @Goldenvoice for full credit. Check them out if you’re at OSL too!
With support from SOHN and Bishop Briggs, this promises to be a heart-wrenching show in the best of ways. Come tear up with us.
