Description

Formed by drummer Clive Deamer and bassist Jim Barr of '90s trip-hop superstars Portishead, The Blessing are storming onto the scene, taking riffs and rhythms from rock and dance music and artfully welding them onto fearsomely inventive improvisation. With trumpeter Pete Judge and saxophonist Jake McMurchie (Where has he been? - Evening Standard) completing the line up, The Blessing's catchy, rocking tunes and snappy arrangements create a genre-bending blend of sounds that is all their own. They began to write tunes and a turning point came in 2006 when they finally got in the studio and a new sound emerged almost overnight. Their new approach has much in common with the current crop of trailblazers - bands such as EST, Polar Bear and Acoustic Ladyland - and draws from influences as diverse as the Kings Of Leon, Morphine, Elvis Costello and Albert Ayler. The idea was to get stuck into 'proper' improvisation rather than to rely upon a coasting rhythm section explains bassist Jim Barr. Tracks: Bleach Cake / That Ain't It / Another Brother's Mother / Cake Hole / Loubia / Can't Believe In Faith / Thermos / Suki Suziki / Equal & Opposite / Small Fish Pond.
