Loner Deluxe is fond of electrickery. "The Plinth Tapes" is a coastal collaboration, from the southern coast of England to the western
shores of Ireland. The original source material was recorded in Dorset by Plinth and mailed to Loner Deluxe for collaging and beat
generation. In redesigning the tunes, making new music from previously existing tracks, overdubbing new instruments and adding loops
and found sounds, Loner Deluxe recast the fragments. Folkish instrumentalities are beaten up and spaced out and although (re)created
in the world of binary "The Plinth Tapes" retain an organic flavour: melodic and warm, this 3inch disc resides in a handmade sleeve.
Loner Deluxe's next project , "Must Not Sleep Must Warn Others" was originally released on the Toyko-based Duotone label and has now
returned home via Rusted Rail, bringing some old friends with it in the shape of a bonus 3" disc of previously unreleased material
called "Lost & Found". The seasonal atmospherics of "Must Not Sleep..." leans heavily on frosted melodies and evocative acoustica
woven into mellow, meditative and minimalist music, while the additional disc "Lost & Found" veers from gentle tone poems to ethereal
folkways and dreamlike sonics. This double 3 inch hand stamped release is housed in handmade mini-gatefold sleeve.
