Michael Tanner (aka Plinth) lulls the listener into half-imagined worlds, drawing equally from vague memories of childhood (eerie books borrowed from the library, quaint otherworldly television serials, hours spent exploring old attics and junkshops), and a heartfelt love and appreciation of the English countryside and the ancient villages dotted around it. His songs have been likened to 'little spells', and hearing them fade out for the last time is to be gently roused from a dream and, perhaps sadly, returned to the present time.

Michael released Wintersongs through Kit in 2014, and returns this year with 'Suite for Psaltery and Dulcimer' - a limited LP inspired by '70s new-age cassettes and the shape of the Sussex landscape.


'musics imbued with dreams of rural Sussex and memories of strangeness in the 70’s ... rich, woozy melodic' - Norman Records

'a stunning instrumental evocation ... the physical world dissolves as we’re lulled into a dreamworld' - The Quietus
