alt-J, the Mercury Prizing winning foursome from Leeds UK, will release an EP of remixes titled Summer on November 25. Jim James, Dave Sitek, Odd Future’s the Internet, Ben Lovett (of Mumford & Sons), Hanz and Ben De Vries all remixed songs from the band’s debut album An Awesome Wave. An Awesome Wave just reached Gold in Canada last week and has now sold more than 250,000 albums in North America.
