»GOLD«, the follow-up to Alabaster DePlume's widely-acclaimed, 2020-released cinematic instrumental LP »To Cy & Lee: Instrumentals Vol. 1«, introduces the world to the artist's truest self. That is... though DePlume's now known across the globe as the saxophonist who created that collection of wonderful, wordless music, he's most known to fervent fans in his home zone of London, UK, as an outspoken poet and orator, beloved for his inspiring words of encouragement and sing-a-long-able songs about vulnerability, humanity, and courage. »GOLD« is a sprawling double album that finds DePlume expressing both sides of his artistic character beautifully: (1) an articulate singer and songwriter who invokes the melodious crooning of Donovan as much as Devendra Banhart or Syd Barrett, whose tunes are almost like mini-sermons, full of existential comedy and spiritual enlightenment; and (2) a brilliant composer of simple, soothing, and viscerally nourishing instrumental melodies, with a gift for expanding them into intrepid collective improvisations, led by a delicate and distinguished saxophone tone that conjures the fluttery sweetness of the great Ethiopique Getatchew Mekurya.
