While slightly wary of describing things as possessing “positive vibes” (as such people have a tendency to also declare themselves to be “a bit spiritual”), I’ve come around to the idea that this is perhaps a little churlish, and that some unabashedly positive vibes are just what we all need right now to help counter the pervasive low-anxiety of Covid living. With that in mind, let us recommend – nay, prescribe – a healthy dose of the good stuff in the form of Alabaster dePlume's lovely 2018 album The Corner of a Sphere, which is evocative of some of our favourite artists who also focus on the uplift, such as Alice Coltrane and Cat Stevens. The reissue of the album, released tomorrow (edit: it has now been delayed til 4 Feb), includes a download of the original album, as well as If In Doubt Yes: The Corner of a Sphere Live and Remixed, which showcases the considerable musical chops of spoken word artist, writer and saxophonist DePlume – AKA the London-and-Manchester-based Angus Fairbairn. Good times.
