Alt-J

[MODERN ROCK] Alt-J’s Joe Newman has a polarizing voice. It’s at once one of the most complained-about and praised instruments in indie music since the Leeds-born quartet released An Awesome Wave last year. Not that unorthodox voices ever hold a band back—see Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, the National and Doldrums as recent examples. Musically, Alt-J is as sharp as they come, a Radiohead-inspired group that banks on highly rhythmic fuzz and detailed song structures. Yet, from the moment a friend told me Newman’s voice sounds like Adam Sandler impersonating a grandmother, it’s all I’ve been able to think about.
