Disclosure ‘Tenderly’  I love this, Nick Grimshaw is behind it and with Alt - J and Friends getting support from Huw Stephens and Fearne Cotton respectively. M83 using his Billboard US top 10 success last year and Anna Calvi on the playlist the indies are working their magic nicely.   See the Radio 1 playlist here and get a free Disclosure EP here

Tip for 2012 - Alt-J

∆ is the symbol you get from hitting alt & j on a keyboard.

Alt-j are too fresh for the tips for 2012, they have been receiving daytime support from Radio by Fern Cotton and Jo Whiley following support from Huw Stephen’s.

They are deep thinking art students from Leeds who produce pop with a post punk underbelly, a unique sound.  Now signed to Infectious Records the label that brought you Temper Trap, Cloud Control and Real Estate they release there single in February and the album is released in April, watch them go.
