The Organic Pick of the Week

alt-J

Each week, a different artist is spotlighted as "The Organic Pick of the Week." Hourly segments of "The Organic Pick" feature the artist's music along with bio information and sound bites.

alt-J came together in 2007 in Leeds, England with Gwil Sainsbury (guitar/bass), Joe Newman (guitar/lead vocals), Thom Sonny Green (drums) and Gus Unger-Hamilton (keyboards/vocals). The band's debut album An Awesome Wave was released in May 2012 in Europe and September 2012 in the United States, and won the 2012 British Mercury Prize. In 2017, the band released their third studio album, Relaxer, and are currently playing as a trio.
