Left Hand Free – alt-J

‘Left Hand Free’ is the second single taken from alt-J’s sophomore album This Is All Yours which was released earlier this week. According to a recent Guardian interview, the band knocked the song together in twenty minutes in response to the record company complaining about the lack of singles on the album. Certainly this is more obvious chart fodder than other alt-J favourites like ‘Breezeblocks’ or ‘Tesselate’. Grace under pressure much?

‘Left Hand Free’ is catchy, bluesy, with dirty guitars and a whole lot of heart (even if they didn’t really mean it!) and it’s worked its way into my DJ set already. Enjoy.
