Alt-J, a band who made an appearance on my best of the first half of 2012, recently unveiled their new video. While there is a gulf between concept and execution here, they’ve still done an admirable job updating Raphael’s “The School of Athens” from the perspective of hip-hop culture. Although I’ve seen a lot of harsh criticism of the clip, you have to congratulate the band for doing something different.

“Tessellate” was released as a single on 07/16, and their brilliant debut An Awesome Wave is out now. Their US tour starts tonight in Los Angeles – dates are listed here.
