Get The Blessing return with seventh album, Pallett, share first single ‘Oscillation ochre’

It’s been too long since Get The Blessing released new music but we can rejoice for they are back with a new record entitled Pallett. Long awaited, their seventh studio album arrives on October 20th and the Bristolian quartet describe it as a “organic eco-paint mixture of hypnotic long-form minimalism, playful rhythms, and unusual textures”. Beholden to no genre, Pallett sprung from improvisations between Jake McMurchie, Pete Judge, and Jim Barr during the lockdown periods, with Clive Deamer later adding drums at his home in Oxfordshire.

To herald the release of Pallett, Get The Blessing have shared the album’s groovy, intoxicating and monumental opener, ‘Oscillation ochre’, a track you’ll want to keep on repeat. The single comes paired with a video made by Charlie Romijn, featuring footage by the band. Check it out below.

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.

Astronautilus is due out on October 2nd via Naim Jazz Records.

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.

Mixtape #49

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!
