26 INDIE / ROCK Issue 68 / 2014 ARTIST OF THE MONTH ALT-J Not that long ago, we had never heard of Alt-J. And now they're selling tickets for the O2 in London OUR PLAYLIST Arrival in Nara alt-J My favourite faded fantasy Damien Rice Song to say Goodbye Placebo We used to be Friends Dandy Warhols Here's the Indie on our playlist this month: ALBUM OF THE MONTH RHODES - HOME EP TRACK OF THE MONTH EX-COPS - WHITE NOISE When talking about Rhodes, real name David Rhodes, words like 'moody' and 'mysterious' are ones that get bandied more often than any other. Well, apart from words like 'incredible' and 'voice'. He's already got two EPs to his name and has opened for massive acts such as London Grammar, Laura Mulvey, and fellow Herts boy Sam Smith. So it's surprising how he's not a household name already. But with the release of this fantastic EP, get ready to hear Rhodes' name and music a lot more! The British singer-songwriter released his third EP this month. Don't be deceived by the upbeat opening. Don't be deceived by Amalie Bruun's soft vocals. In fact, expect the unexpected from this great track. The upbeat tone intermittently gets overtaken by a heavy metal, intense influence. Bruun's vocals start soft but get more and more powerful showcasing her fantastic voice. A brilliant and powerful track. We can't wait for the full album! The most recent track whets our appe- tite for the big release of their new al- bum 'Daggers'. Alt-J's first album "An Awesome Wave" came out only two years ago, and it indeed made massive waves in the scene. They came out of nothing, but quickly won everyone's heart over. "This Is All Yours", their second album that came out in September, exceeded all of our high expecta- tions. "Arrival in Nara" gives us the typical Alt-J harmonies, while "Left Hand Free" are new sounds that take us on a US-highway. Alt-J grew up and they go big now, selling tickets for The O2 in London next year. Make sure to get your tickets real quick, because this concert will be huge. More @
