We’re only two weeks away from the much anticipated release of Get The Blessing‘s fifth album, Astronautilus. The Bristolian quartet had already allured us with the first single, ‘Monkfish‘ and they’re keeping us excited with another incredible cut from the album, ‘Phaenomena’. The track comes with an accompanying video directed by James Hankins. Here it is.
Bristolian quartet Get The Blessing landed one of our favourite albums of 2014 with their fourth album Lope & Antilope. So we’re excited to know they are ready to unveil its follow-up, Astronautilus. Dedicated to the late Ornette Coleman, the album “was literally composed between crashing waves and deserted estuary sands”, says the press release, “producing an album of pounding rhythms, spacious atmospheres and strongly-crafted melodies – plus, of course, the unpredictability and musical mischievousness that have made the band so exciting and successful.” Astronautilus is due out on October 2nd via Naim Jazz Records and Get The Blessing have already allured us with the awesome single ‘Monkfish’. Reportedly, the track is “simultaneously inspired by Thelonius Monk, a pair of Deamer’s shoes and of course, the fish”. Here it is.
Earlier this year, we were stunned by the new album from Bristolian quartet Get The Blessing.
They won us over with their wonderful blend of sounds drawing from jazz to pop and electronica. So this month we've asked them to put together our mixtape and even though they were busy (and still are) touring Europe, they obliged. And we're sure glad they did, press play already!
At the end of last year, Bristolian quartet Get The Blessing instantly conquered our ears and hearts with ‘Quiet’, the first single lifted from their fourth album Lope & Antilope. They have just unleashed a quirky video to accompany the single. Watch it now.
Here’s another staggering preview of Get The Blessing‘s fourth album Lope & Antilope in the form of ‘Corniche’. Needless to say, Lope & Antilope is one of our most anticipated albums of the year and a strong contender for our picks of 2014. Listen to ‘Corniche’ below and pick up the album when it comes out this Monday January 20th via Naim Jazz.
