Rusted Rail is proud to announce the release of "Long Shore Drift" by Loner Deluxe. The third in a series of Digital Cassingles, "Long Shore Drift" is home to four songs on Bandcamp, continuing Loner Deluxe's sonic obsession with what he calls "UFOlk". Initially inspired by a scorching summer trip to a remote island off the west coast of Ireland these heat haze melodies have sand in their grooves but are not just confined to planet Earth. "Long Shore Drift" takes in warm summer waters and galactic grooves: from the coast to the cosmos, from western shores to the sea of tranquility, Loner Deluxe has made a soundtrack for dunes on the moon, cosmic loneliness and marine melodies, there's even music for a derelict dancefloor in a haunted nightclub. This 4-song Digital Cassingle is available here -

Rusted Rail is proud to announce the release of "Snowed Under", the winter sequel to the summer release of "The Coast is Clear". "Snowed Under" is home to three free/name-your-price songs on Bandcamp and this Digital Cassingle finds Loner Deluxe delving deep into extraterrestrial grooves, sonic space and UFOlk - staring at the night sky in hope. The cover image of this release is a sequel to the image of "The Coast is Clear" - its the same lake that Loner Deluxe is gazing at but the warm summer waters have turned to ice. Lead track "Winters Last Fire" had the honour of being included on Volume 7 of An Taobh Tuathail compiled by taste-making broadcaster Cian O Ciobhain, nestled alongside such artists as Sufjan Stevens, Colleen and Nils Frahm. This is the first time the song has been available on its own, but its not alone as its in good company with "Holding Pattern" and "We Saw No Stars" combining to make up "Snowed Under" - cosmic electronica with a human touch.
This collection of three songs by Rusted Rail recording artist Loner Deluxe is available as a free/name-your-price download here -

Rusted Rail is proud to announce the release of "The Coast is Clear", a free 3-track Digital Cassingle from Loner Deluxe available to download from Bandcamp. Too long to be a Single and too short to be an Extended Player, this collection of three songs by Rusted Rail recording artist Loner Deluxe is free to download but instead of seeming like its being shared with the world at no cost Loner Deluxe decided to call it a Digital Cassingle just to muddy the waters a little, and to get people talking and listening. The addition of vocals and live instrumentation melds with the bedrock of sampladelic electronica of his previous output to lead Loner Deluxe into the future. This summer release will be followed by a winter sequel later in 2015 called "Snowed Under" also containing three free songs.

"Must Not Sleep Must Warn Others" was originally released on the Toyko-based Duotone label and has now returned home via Rusted Rail, bringing some old friends with it in the shape of a bonus 3" disc of previously unreleased material called "Lost & Found". The seasonal atmospherics of "Must Not Sleep..." leans heavily on frosted melodies and evocative acoustica woven into mellow, meditative and minimalist music, while the additional disc "Lost & Found" veers from gentle tone poems to ethereal folkways and dreamlike sonics. This double 3 inch hand stamped release is housed in handmade mini-gatefold sleeve.

Loner Deluxe is fond of electrickery. "The Plinth Tapes" is a coastal collaboration, from the southern coast of England to the western shores of Ireland. The original source material was recorded in Dorset by Plinth and mailed to Loner Deluxe for collaging and beat generation. In redesigning the tunes, making new music from previously existing tracks, overdubbing new instruments and adding loops and found sounds, Loner Deluxe recast the fragments. Folkish instrumentalities are beaten up and spaced out and although (re)created in the world of binary "The Plinth Tapes" retain an organic flavour: melodic and warm, this 3inch disc resides in a handmade sleeve.
