Alabaster dePlume is a real one off.
A London based Mancunian spoken word artist, his live sets are something to behold, a torrent of words and ideas that never fail to inspire.
Pairing up with Scottish label Lost Map for new album 'The Corner Of A Sphere', Alabaster's material sits somewhere between folk, jazz, and underground literature.
Cast in point: New song 'Be Nice To People', an uproarious gem that bundles all manner of word play into its three minute life span.
Clash has first dibs on the video, a monochrome clip that shows Alabaster clad in furs, clutching a saxophone and leering at the camera.
As we say, a real one off. Tune in now.
