1.45pm Michael Plater is an Australian experimental/folk/psych/indie/noir musician, who has recently returned from living in the United Kingdom. He has played all over the world and put out a series of acclaimed releases on such U.K. labels as Reverb Worship, Hypostatic Union, and Dub Cthonic. His latest album, “Ghost Music,” is out now. Inspired by Australia’s dark history and the myths, folklore, and legends of his adopted home in Cornwall, the album is a collaboration with U.K musicians John Hannon (Liberez, Woe) and Stafford Glover (Enclosed & Silent Order, Extreme Noise Terror).

Recent Press:

“These songs are too tender to burn the heart: they melt it instead...Ghost Music isn’t a record you choose. Boasting songs that feel as though they were written for your ears only, it chooses you. It’s not true of course, but that’s how great storytellers sink their hooks in, and Plater is most certainly that." (Sun 13, Liverpool)

"He’s managed to create a suite of songs that sonically match the stories being told in that they drip with mystery, tension, drama, darkness and foreboding. You could almost imagine these tales being told in hushed tones, in a dimly lit corner of a cliff top inn while the wind and rain lash against the windows outside.” (The Smelly Flowerpot, Cambridge)

"There's a raw, unearthly power here, and played loud (as I believe this apparently quiet record is intended to be played) the world becomes a different, more exquisite and disturbing place. “Ghost Music” is bloody magnificent." (I-94, Australia)
