Recorded live at the Canibal Canniche festival, held in Berlin May 2nd 2010
Mastered by Final Cut

Are you prepared to take on a journey of live and improv’ed experimentalism. Are you willing to open your ears and mind for the unusual that took place live on stage. This French artist has before released a few albums on the Belgium Entity netlabel of which my first encounter was with the ‘2 humans in a cage with their everything box’. An intriguing title don’t you think?
Well that was exactly what lured me into a peak listen and an immediate play choice for NTNS radio. Now two years later they are back as Planetaldol and of one thing you can be certain. Your mind will be taken on quite the fantastic voyage.

JNN093 Voder – Fields

The third second releaser comes from Brighton, UK. Paul Nadin, or better known as Voder has previously released his most beautiful album ‘Island’ on the fantastic Distance Recordings netlabel.
Where before he used the recordings of a visit to Iceland to create an aural description of the various locations which he visited and made field recordings of, this time he takes us to the fields. Which fields as of yet are unknown, but I think in all of us slumbers that hidden field of our youth that this music so well captures. Take a trip down memorylane and join in on this 6-track album of pure joy.

Mirror:

01 – Calm of the storm
02 – Sea fog makes landfall
03 – Fields 1
04 – Fields 2
05 – Luna
06 – Saccades

JNN092 Kris Cadwell – Art is a style of perception

Like Stream69, Kris Cadwell also revisits the JNN-catalog with a successor to his first album ‘Offerings’ (JNN070). Another beauty and indepth look into the sound of a visual artist exploring not in paint or color, but in tone.
The diversity of this artist is remarkable; at times this feels very Boards of Canada when he can also change his cloth and create a beautiful deep field of drones and beatfree song. Kris certainly shows his wardrobe and wears it in style.
We’re very happen to welcome him back to Just not Normal. And as for you; why not dip into this soft and wonderful realm that somehow only a visual artist can conceive.

Mirror:

01 – Remember when
02 – The feared poly drug abuser
03 – Hues
04 – Sleepaid
05 – Intermission
06 – A melody for our dead friends
07 – A dream about the river
08 – Light precipitation
09 – Snowstorm
