alt-J - Left Hand Free/Hunger of the Pine

Feels like: The Rolling Stones, The Kooks, Muse, The Whistles and the Bells, Led Zeppelin, Phantogram, M.I.A., Santigold

"Left Hand Free" is another song along the lines of The Kooks' new "Hooray for Henry" and let me tell you, this classic rock inspired jam is excellent.  "Hunger of the Pine" is more along the lines of what we have come to expect from alt-J, similar to a Phantogram with a Santigold or M.I.A. presence in the background.  One thing is for sure, alt-J was no mistake as they climbed to the top of the charts, and their new stuff is sure to impress.
