Round 2... ding.. ding.. ding... For our second event ever, we're over the moon to be bringing more tasty talent to the Jam Jar.

Alabaster DePlume

yes yes yes! Alabaster DePlume is heading back to bristol for what promises to be a very special show indeed. Alabaster is a spoken word artist, a writer, a saxophonist, whose music was described as “cheerfully uneasy” listening by BBC Radio 3’s Max Reinhardt - a description we like a lot.

During a residency of development shows, described by the Guardian as “ a reminder of how vital and adventurous music can be” Alabaster created fresh new tunes with fresh new musicians each month, developing ideas for last years album ‘the corner of a sphere.’ The result was one our favourites of 2018.

Gilles Peterson went along to the album launch and his this to say:

“I had a discovery this week … i went to a venue and i discovered something new. I discovered a guy who’s made four albums, and it blew my mind. I walked into this venue, and there was a sort of round circle with some of the most amazing musicians performing together, including members of The Comet Is Coming, and various sort of musicians from both Manchester and London and they were surrounding the music of an artist called Alabaster dePlume. And I’m going to make his new record my record of the week. It’s called The Corner Of a Sphere. Now, it’s got a little bit of Morrissey in it, it’s got a bit of Tom Waits in it, it’s got a little bit of Stewart Lee in it. The guy absolute blew my mind this week.” 


We can’t wait to welcome super tipped pioneers of new genre ‘trip jam’ for the band’s Bristol debut (pretty sure). Fusing latin rhythms with dreamy psychedelia and silky bass lines - Peluchè honed their unique sound from improvised jam sessions in their shed. Having previously released a single on Dan Carey’s always great Speedy Wunderground label - the band released their spellbinding debut on One Little Indian last September. According to the Guardian - ‘it’s dreamy and danceable, shimmery and sultry’.

‘Peluché are a dreamlike band who don’t feel quite real. Their freewheeling musical vision, feels not of this Earth. There’s something utterly enchanting at work.’ - Line of best fit
