    I'd been bugging Mr.Tanner for a release on Reckno after being mesmerised by his epic, watery, Basinski-style album length take on Fleetwood Mac's Albatross and the magical, creaking A Lords LP on Rif Mountain from last year. The tape he delivered to Reckno, however, transcended all my expectations. Witch Elder has 7 distinct but interlocking pieces of music improvised on a broken Casio PT-30 and recorded live in Belfast between the 17th - 19th of August 2012. It sounds both familiar and surprising.

    A piece of choral music is playing a few streets away, everything is just out of reach, someone just walked in with a bouzouki, the room is glowing blue. Although it's titled Witch Elder, when I'm listening my brain seems to conjur the image of a young Witch, contented, on the cusp of sleep and levitating 2 feet above the ground. But that's just me.

    Michael has recorded music under various guises including Plinth, United Bible Studies, The A.Lords, Cat Lady and The Cloisters.

    Witch Elder is the first release under his own name.

    Edition of 100 pro dubbed pale blue cassettes. Each copy comes with a download code.

    This release is dedicated to Cynthia Dall.
