Album Review

Plinth – “Collected Machine Music” – [Time Released Sound]

cinder   8/3/2012   A Library, CD

A whimsical, delightful, and reminiscent album. All tracks were complied from various Victorian parlour music machines, wax cylinders, French carillon, and calliopes. Plinth is an accurate name, as the music has that sort of echoing plink-plonk hum. It’s like listening to glimmering music boxes, whiles eating cotton candy. No cheeseball or goofy sounds here, the way Colin has reconstructed them into tracks is brilliant. Thoughtful, pondering, almost ambient. Chimes, wooden cranks, pipes and the roll of punched paper fill each dainty breeze of sound. Beautiful, relaxing and lovely.

Hi....thanks for the review! However, Colin Herrick owns the label that released this, and is not the musician. The wonderfully talented musician lives in the UK...his name is Michael Tanner...

Thanks, Colin
