Review

Informed by such diverse experiences playing in polyrhythmic punk bands in his youth, tuition in jazz and Indian classical music, five years as an accompanist for other artists on international tours and ten years of working with adults with learning difficulties, Alabaster dePlume's output is thoroughly special. A disarming, unpredictable, wilfully awkward and totally life-affirming meld of richly evocative poetry and singing, sweet soft music, deadpan comedy, left-wing political fire and righteous helpings of right-on good vibes, as encapsulated best by Angus's positive mantra: "you're doing very well, it's not always easy".

The Corner of a Sphere is a provocative invitation to reconsider where the distinctions between styles and genres and modes of performance lie, and whether or not we even need those distinctions in any case. Angus first built an audience in East London through his monthly development residency PEACH at the Total Refreshment Centre in Dalston. Featuring friends and special guests and a different improvisational live band every time, it was described by Laura Barton from The Guardian as "one of the most thrilling performances I've seen this year; a reminder of how vital and adventurous music can be". Alabaster DePlume has gone on to perform at major festivals, theatres and clubs around the UK and Europe. In 2020, his song 'Visit Croatia' was prominently sampled by Bon Iver on 'PDLIF'
