Product Description

Product Description

Limited 180gm heavyweight vinyl edition featuring free HD download code. OC DC once again finds Get The Blessing elbowing their way out of easy categorisation. The Bristol-based four-piece have deftly ploughed their jazzy post-rock furrow since the release of their debut All Is Yes, drawing enthusiastic comparisons to similarly inventive acts like Tortoise and Polar Bear. The follow-up, Bugs In Amber, cemented their affable rapport with critics and fans alike, and further defied the boundaries and boxes that were placed around them. From the upbeat rollicking title track that kicks off proceedings, to the lilting cinematic closer Pentopia, OC DC exudes energy and invention at every turn. A particular highlight is the unexpected guest cameo by legendary composer & musician Robert Wyatt – a delicious wordless chorale on the languid American Meccano, recorded in a Lincolnshire studio open to the sounds of birdsong and passing vehicles. Get The Blessing wear their jazz credentials lightly but defiantly. A shared love of legendary saxophonist Ornette Coleman's early quartet inspired their boldly monophonic instrumentation. The intricate but absolutely rock-solid rhythm section forms the glue that holds Get The Blessing together, with the dual sax and trumpet frontline working with the bass to create melodies and harmonies. BBC Jazz Award winners for Best New Album, drummer Clive Deamer and bassist Jim Barr have long provided the low-end rumbles and stuttering beats for trip-hop legends Portishead, and Deamer has recently been recruited by none other than Radiohead as their second live drummer (he's also an established partner of Robert Plant, Roni Size, Hawkwind, Jeff Beck and several other contemporary luminaries). With guest turns from Portishead guitarist Adrian Utley as well as Robert Wyatt, and influences including astronomy, psychology, Borges, and food, OC DC grabs the listener by the lapels and sets off joyously once more into the sonic wilderness.

Format: Audio CD
I like Polar Bear, so thought I'd give this a go. This is an album you can really warm to; great tunes, some - but not too much - improvisation, and a hard percussive edge throughout. Jazz for the 21st century. Some tracks have a languid feel and some really drive, but the general mood is both bright and uplifting. I'm currently waiting for their first two albums to arrive.

This is the first GTB cd in my collection. Modern jazz beats, great tunes, toe tapping fun, I recommend this if you are in to the likes of Polar Bear and Shibusashirazu.
