Listen: Dalhous – Abyssal Plane From His 2nd Blackest Ever Black Lp


Will To Be Well is the new studio album by Dalhous, his second outing for Blackest Ever Black released on 30th June. There's a taster of what's to come to get your ears round below.

This double-LP reflects writer-producer Marc Dall’s continued interest in the life and arcana of R.D. Laing, but also alludes to more universal and enduring mysteries: the relationships between body and mind, illness and wellness, the physical and the metaphysical .Will To Be Well arrives just one year on from the Edinburgh-based project’s tenebrous debut, An Ambassador For Laing
The fifteen tracks assembled on the album showcase the maturation of a uniquely gifted and expressive composer: the album recalls a bygone era in synthesized and sample-based music, a time when its practitioners were not just set-designers but storytellers too.  Dall’s stirring, efflorescent melodies and stately harmonic architectures, with their grievously honed simplicity, are a delight: lucid, lyrical, immediate.

The first rumblings from the album can be heard below with the sublime Abyssl Plane which has been assisting with this difficult Monday of mornings…
