Virtual gallery: alt-J at The Civic

Indie rock band alt-J, from Leeds, England, brought their eclectic magic to a sold out show at The Civic this past Monday night. In the performance, the quartet managed to merge a slew of different musical styles, creating a unique, yet whole and well-rounded sound. The band's mix of folk and world beats combined well with the unconventional and experimental nature of the songs. The set list consisted of tracks from each the band's latest album, This is All Yours, as well as their debut record, An Awesome Wave. alt-J's experimental sound was accentuated by their set of artistic background visuals. Although the band remained predominantly stationary throughout their performance, the interesting visuals maintained a certain level of spatial engagement.
