Bibio
Phantom Brickworks (IV & V)

Bibio AKA Stephen Wilkinson usually makes albums that go down well at Norman Towers. There was a blip, however, but that was forgotten when Phantom Brickworks was released in 2017 - a return to form - a stunning series of lengthy ambient pieces. Here, then, we have Phantom Brickworks (IV & V),...view item »

Bibio
Phantom Brickworks

What has Bibio in store for us this time? Lo-fi pastoral electronics, hi-fi Clarkalike bangers, dollops of disco or some of his peculiar, warm-spirited hybrids of the lot? In fact, Stephen Wilkinson’s new offering unexpectedly consists of semi-improvise...view item »

Bibio
Beyond Serious

A pre-release to Bibio’s as yet untitled new record due late 2017, Beyond Serious contains a collection of tracks that belong in the summer sun. For this one think Anthony Naples and Delroy Edwards style house and experimental house that begins to dip into the techno and EDM genres a little. ...view item »

Bibio
Excuses

A couple of years ago Bibio made the swift transition of a Brummie lo fidelity Boards of Canada affiliate to a Brummie lo fidelity purveyor of J Dilla like hip hop grooves and advertisement friendly summery pop. This move continues to his upcoming new album which has split the office a little although I have fo...view item »

Bibio
The Serious EP

The 'Serious' EP is born out of a number of collaborations between Bibio (Stephen Wilkinson) and singer Olivier St. Louis (formerly known as Olivier Daysoul). This follows on from the 'A Mineral Love' LP and sees Bibio heading in a more electro funk direction with soulful vocals that will appeal to fans of Craig Dav...view item »

Bibio
A Mineral Love

The iconic Warp records bring Bibio’s A Mineral Love to vinyl LP and CD. Bibio is constantly tweaking and developing his sound, and on this album he has shifted towards electronic funk. Here soulful vocals and boogie basslines float on a sad undercurrent. This record is another leap forward for Bibio&rsquo...view item »

Mark Pritchard / Bibio / Clark
A Badman Sound / Heath Town / Inf Inf Inf Inf

This looks like a good Record Store Day release. Three of Warp's best and brightest celebrate rave culture with a track each. Pritchard does a throwback jungle anthem, Bibio takes cues from 'A Badman Sound' and uses that 'yeah woo' sample and Clark makes laid back ambience like early Aphex Twin. Bound to be a winner on the day my lad. ...view item »

Bibio
Silver Wilkinson

Over the course of his last few excellent LPs West Midlands resident Steven Wilkinson has pretty much come up with his own signature sound, one can now utter that something sounds Bibio-esque such are his achievements. He produces a kind of faded polaroid postcard autumnal pop which owes as much to ...view item »

Bibio
In The Green EP

Although previous album ‘Silver Wilkinson’ wasn’t quite what I’d been hoping for, I still found myself lost in its foggy tangle of folky acoustics for weeks at a time, neither wanting nor needing to escape. Bibio is one of those artists to be worshipped from afar, you are never quite sure how he makes his music so beautif...view item »

Bibio

I doubt Bibio will ever top this track (à tout à l'heure), nor the album it spawns from (Silver Wilkinson, yup, I said it). But I love him all the same. The only man who could make you cry without making you hate him afterwards....view item »

Bibio
K Is For Kelson

Another limited 12" on Warp, this time by Bibio. I loved his first couple of albums and then lost interest but my interest has been rekindled by Mind Bokeh which I think is a sterling electronic pop album bustling with ideas.  One of the highlights is 'K is For Kelson' which is a slab of summery retro pop with 'babada babada' vocals and...view item »

T.O.Y.S

Bibio a.k.a James Wilkinson returns with T.O.Y.S., a four track E.P that features 'Take Off Your Shirt' as its lead track. It's the third single off Bibio's recent 'Mind Bokeh' LP that has seen Bibio take his production techn...view item »

Bibio
Mind Bokeh

After making three albums of simple, pretty Boards of Canada inspired rural acoustic electronica, Bibio cranked it up a notch with the excellent 'Ambivalence Avenue' and its sister album, the partly remixed 'The Apple and the Tooth', both of which deserve an hour or two of your time. His sound now encompasses all manner of funk, soul, hip h...view item »

Bibio
Ambivalence Avenue

Is Bibio the new Lemon Jelly? Loved 'Fi' cos it was ace to play when you wanted the woozy retro soundscapes and emotive nostalgia without the weirdo hip-hop breaks that epitomised Boards of Canada's finest cuts. Did you know I once kept the drummer from Hood awake by quietly playing BOC late at night whilst canoodling with my girl and honestly, i'v...view item »

Bibio
The Apple and The Tooth

Bibio (a.k.a producer and multi-instrumentalist aka Stephen Wilkinson) is carrying the torch of ambient electronic with much enthusiasm. Exploring avenues created by the likes Boards of Canada and running with it Bibio has produced one of the most uplifting records of the year with 'Ambivalence Avenue'. New album 'The apple and the tooth' acts more...view item »

Bibio
Vignetting The Compost

Someone just threw the third Bibio album at me to write about. 'Vignetting The Compost' is bursting with 16 tracks of intricate guitar pluckery. Some of the tunes have a delicious analogue production sound, like the master tapes have been left to warp and blister in the sweltering summer heat. There's a good combination of instrumental and vocal tr...view item »

Fi

We'll swiftly move onto to Bibio on Mush. Which on the front has a sticker quoting someone from Boards of Canada pretty much saying this is ace. And that person not be wrong cos this is superb. Mellow folky inspired 70's sounding electronica with ...view item »

Bibio
Hand Cranked

Woohoo! A new Bibio CD. Hand Cranked continues from where the last one left off with possibly more of a twangy guitarry feel. Ie it still sounds like those lovely analogue bits you'd get in between Boards Of Canada tracks on their albums (albeit extended) but with a more acoustic feel. I've yet to hear a more woozy and hazey ...view item »
