'The Plinth Tapes' sees Loner Deluxe exercising his creative freedoms on source material provided by Dorset's Plinth. This is a fine example of the kind of organic yet sequencer based folktronica pioneered by the likes of Kieran Hebden Soft ambient synths and subtle melodic guitar patterns are carefully crafted and manipulated to from vast sound collages that drift over the room and tickle the ears. Ambient folkiness is occasionally interrupted by a looped beat or some bizarre banter (i'm not sure if it's supposed to be funny, but on the track 'Persons Unknown' there is some particularly good talk from a fella justifying the shooting of some helpless character by suggesting he is 'vigilante of god'. This is just one of many found sound gems to heard on this release) to reel the listener in but mostly you'll find yourself floating in a light atmosphere sometimes referred to as acoustica or folktronica. Available on Rusted Rail on that proper tiny cd format that is way to easy to lose, yet practical if you are short on storage space like yours truly.
