I want to share your mouthful
I want to do all the things your lungs do so well
I'm gonna bed into you like a cat beds into a bean bag
Turn you inside out to lick you like a crisp packet

You're the first and last of your kind
Pull me like an animal out of a hole
I want to be every lever you pull
And all showers that shower you
I'm gonna paw, paw at you
Like a cat paws at my woollen jumper
Be your Minpin
And Borrower of handsome trivia

Devour me
Lou, Lou, let the cover girls sing!

All handclaps, you will clap
Let me be the wallpaper that papers up your room
I want to be every button you press
And all the baths that surround you
Yes I'm gonna roll around you
Like a cat rolls around saw dusted patios
I'm gonna kiss you
Like the sun browns you

Devour me
Devour me
If you really think that you can stomach me

I want every other freckle
I want every other freckle
I want every other freckle
I want every other freckle
I want every other freckle
I want every other freckle
I want every other freckle
I want every other freckle
freckle

Yes, among others.  Reading some of the comments here, though, one would think this is a very recent thing.

Sometimes when a person dislikes something that many others really like, it leads to feelings of anger and frustration.  This is a normal response and is understandable.  I feel this way about Kate Bush and the fact that so many Radio Paradisians seemingly love her as much as they do only makes me hate her high-pitched dog whistle fingernails-on-a-chalkboard braying all the more.  I get the Alt-J hate, but I personally love them.  If it's pretentious, then I'm good with that.

Also drums.  What's up with all these songs with drums?
Just looked across the room and there's my cat, bedded down in the beanbag like she has no bones.  I'm guessing he means the way she paddled her little paws as she settled down.  Either way, it's a nicer mental image than licking out a crisp packet (packet of chips if you're in the US)

I love these comments.  Obviously a lot of thought and introspection here.  But, damn, how does one have so many free minutes in a day?  That freedom is wielded in a most pretentious way. 


Love this...
Please play more Marvin Gaye, never get tired of his soul.
A song that's still terrible after all these years with no sign of dating well.
You better hope the person you're playing this for is truly into you, 'cause if not #Metoo will be all over you like that bean bag wrapped around a cat.

Oh I do like a lot of what I hear from these folks...
Honestly, the rhythm and baseline had me thinking I was about to hear a remix of "Old Town Road". A solid 7 just because of the relief that it wasn't that!

Fixed. Thanks.

I've been on the Alt-J fence for a bit now, and decided to play this track outside of RP last night while drinking and then played the entire album; it's freaking AWESOME.  I'm upping my 8→9 on this track and give the entire record an 8 rating. 

Long Live RP and THANK YOU BillG for turning me on to Alt-J!

Finally went to a 10 on this one....having used the line w/ my freckled wife makes this one a bit more important than it might have otherwise.  hehehehe...Long Live RP!!

Had never heard of them before hearing this song here a month ago. It got stuck in my head. Got the CD. Saw they were playing here in St. Louis and got tickets. Damn fine show, over the top lighting. Once again, a tip of the hat to Bill for turning me on to new music.
I don't mind alt-j, however sometimes the lead singer sounds like Adam Sandler too much for my taste.{#Beat}

 
 I like Alt-J.
Can't stand this song.
FWIW.
There seems to be a lot of this going on at RP these days, but: the lyrics on the page are hilariously incorrect. A small sample:

 RP lyrics:
You're the first and last of your kind
Hold me like an animal utaffable
I wanna be every lever you've pulled
And all showers that shower you
Not a pop or a tune
Like a cat falls and I wanna dump her
Me, I'm in bin
Ignore her worth, and some trivia
 
 Lyrics as found on Genius Lyrics:
You're the first and last of your kind
(Pull me like an animal out of a hole!)
I want to be every lever you pull
And all showers that shower you
I'm gonna paw, paw at you
Like a cat paws at my woollen jumper
Be your Minpin
And Borrower of handsome trivia

I went to see Alt-J in Margate a couple of moths ago. TBH, not my choice, so went with an open mind.

It was one of the best gigs. Atmospheric and laid back, but also heavy and hard hitting - great light show - I was moshing with the best of them by the end.

The winter gardens is also great venue.

Michael_Dean, you are genius, in a pretentious, evil genius  sort of way...you don't have that listed here. }:-)
These guys are so weird. And a lot of people think I'm weird.
I either love their songs or I really dislike them. This one I love, as well as the album art...very cool.
Everyone on here is right about one thing, utaffable is not a real word, but utaffable isn't the real lyrics of the song. It sounds like 'Hold me like an animal utaffable" the real lyrics are "Pull me like an animal out of a hole" 
Weirdly entertaining.

It is good to finally see the comments for a song which do not include: "sounds like Pink Floyd", "stolen from The Beatles", or the laughably ironic "rip-off of Led Zeppelin".  I've liked some tunes I've heard from these guys; this one: not so much.

They've either taken too much acid or not enough and I've never been able to work out which.

Not their best; but still high above average. Love the lyrical thought  and the precision of composition and execution.

Since RP ratings are on a per-song basis, not a per-artist basis, the numbers aren't misleading at all.

28% of the artists played on RP are "Sucko-barfo", per your ratings.

So while you've been busy in the last few weeks (when I first looked, 202 1s were 54% of your ratings, so you had 374 total; you've since added about 71 ratings higher than 1 - good for you, I suppose), you're still in the wrong place.

I do like a good number of Alt-J songs, but the lead singer definitely sounds like Adam Sandler.
Sounds like the drunken Russian Army Choir is howling "Hey, Hey" in the background.

Hey! PSD

 
Yes brother :)
Trying really hard to like these guys but it's just not happening.
This is an outstanding album, and this song works better in the context of the album.

Definitely better ingested as a whole if you have an our or so of time during which you can devote your attention to it.
Hey!
Hey!
Hey!
Hey!

Someone should do a fan video using the UV freckle cam vid https://vimeo.com/97666651

She has not sense of humor, and/or is not a music fan.

Yech....not a fan of anything I've heard from these folks - this song is just plain terrible and annoying...
This fails to grow on me. After another few listens, it will be time for the groovy PSD thingie. Hey hey, hey hey. 
Groovy tune.
This tune ain't no slouch.

I've got an extra crisp packet.  If anyone needs to lick one just let me know.

Nom Nom!

Every once in a while, I'm moved to get onto the site and comment about a bad (or good!) song.

This one is pure annoyance.

Recent live show with new material: https://www.npr.org/event/music/343179823/first-listen-live-alt-j-this-is-all-yours
There are better Alt-J songs and this ain't one of them. Seems like a throwaway they put on the album to take up some space. Bleh.
These guys are so very cool...and probably should be seen live
Get a room!
An Awesome Wave is a tough act to follow, but I like what I hear from the new album so far.
I'll say it again: these guys are gonna have their "Gotye-moment" where they hit just the right combination of unique-meets-pop and we won't be able to escape hearing their "big hit" on every top-40 and/or 'alternative rock" station, not to mention commercials and NPR segues... these guys are good.
this band/guy is just plain COOL.  love the individuality of his voice and the unique lyrics and music. 
Music exposure like this is what i love about RP!{#Yell}{#Clap}
AWESOME! Can't wait for the CD to arrive.
I generally like Alt-J a lot.  I just don't know about this one.
More ALT-J goodness :-) 
yes. i like this. love the album cover.
Nice. Almost forgot again about this.
New Alt-J is good Alt-j.
