alt-J On World Cafe

The band's sound is hard to pin down: It's somewhere between folk and electronica, the words sometimes poetry, sometimes prose.
When it comes to today's guests, mystery is the name of the game. The band's name is the symbol of a triangle. It's pronounced alt-J. You won't find pictures of the three stars of the band very many places - certainly not on the cover of its new record, which features a drawing of an anonymous red body on the side of a highway. And not in the music video for the album's first single, which stars a scurrying wood mouse.
