Dorset musician Michael Tanner, aka Plinth, has been weaving eccentric, immersive soundscapes under different names for several years. His latest release, the masterfully atmospheric Wintersongs, is something of a chilly masterpiece. Taking traditional instruments and field recordings, Plinth paints a swelling forest of sound, in turns spooky and cockle-warming.

Wintersongs will be released on Kit Records on January 25.
