Up next on my Things To Review From Just Not Normal is a brilliant live set from Planetaldol. Ballad For Knacker opens up with an incredibly disturbing movie sample that segues into the main track by means of a slowly building layer of dark ambience. This establishes an appropriately morbid tone for the remainder of the set. The 38-minute performance deftly undulates through a series of deep and dank ambient backdrops over which are applied a host of sounds that evoke an eerie darkness. One of the best dark ambient pieces I’ve heard in a long time, and that it was a live performance only serves to elevate my appreciation even more.
