Hunger of the Pine by Alt-J
Une immense espérance a traversé la terre
Une immense espérance a traversé ma peur
Alt-J’s new record is a slow burner, it takes a few listen before I got to appreciate it fully. You have to wait for it, to let it envelop you and to let it trickle down to the very depths of your ears.
A sensational feeling once you start embracing it and hearing those 2 lines in French being whispered softly by Joe Newman. Those lines which meant, "A great hope has traversed the land, a great hope has crossed my fear." was taken from a poem called L’Espoir en Dieu by Alfred de Musset. It was a nice touch as well as a tiny sample from Miley Cyrus’ 4x4. It seems that Alt-J is in the right direction for their sophomore record, This Is All Yours.
