This Year's Best New Song...This Week is.......drum roll....... "Tessellate" by Alt-J.
We were captivated and intrigued by the sound and style of UK based alt-indie band Alt-J. Their latest offering is the percussion-driven "Tessellate", which is one of our favorite new tracks. If you're a fan of "Breezeblocks", you'll definitely dig "Tessellate".
We'll play "Tessellate" Monday through Friday at 8:10a, 12:10p, 6:10p and 10:10p.
Like the song? We've got 1,000 FREE downloads of "Tessellate". Password: 987
