Get The Blessing - fusing the sound of melancholic trip hop and krautrock

30/01/2019 by Richard Samuel

With an unclassifiable sound of melancholic trip hop and krautrock, quirky Bristolian quartet Get The Blessing explore spacey electronics, post rock atmospheres alongside mutant jazz sensibilities. Their fusion sound has been called “Punk Jazz” by The Guardian and further hailed by the likes of Time Out “trip hop-informed contemporary jazz-rock at its very best", The Telegraph "cool…stylish…irresistible" and more.

We welcome the jazz-rock band to Clwb Ifor Bach on Firday the 19th of April 2019 at Clwb Ifor Bach, Cardiff. Tickets will go on sale Friday the 1st of February and for more information and tickets - Click Here

Formed back in 1999 by bassist Jim Barr and drummer Clive Deamer (rhythm section of seminal act Portishead) alongside Jake McMurchie (on sax and electronics) and Pete Judge (trumpet and electronics) the Bristol-based four-piece boast a truly international fan-base, having forged a unique signature sound that defies easy classification. Despite several short breaks for other projects over the years – most recently in 2018 when drummer Clive Deamer was on tour again with Radiohead - they have never lost sight of thumping tunes, monstrously infectious beats, or joyous collective spontaneity.

Get The Blessing’s latest album ‘Bristopia’ ventures into new, unexplored territories. With this powerful return, the band send their sonic transmission deep into the furthest corners of the universe, setting the pace for the current UK Jazz revival and demonstrating that the early pioneers of the scene are still the heavyweights of the contemporary jazz scene.
