    Bibio

    Hand Cranked - Vinyl Reissue

      Warp Records will reissue Bibio’s Hand Cranked album on vinyl for the first time. The album was originally released in 2006 by Mush and was one of the releases that caught the ear of the Warp label before signing Bibio for Ambivalence Avenue in 2009. That record will also be restocked on vinyl to coincide with this release. Hand Cranked, his second release, saw him delve further into the sounds he crafted on his debut, Fi, with a focus on saturated guitars, found sound and field recordings and an affinity for the pastoral inspiration of his Northern England surroundings.

      Hand Cranked stepped it up a level though, bringing in Bibio's unique take on folk and blending it with electronic loops; a sound that he would continue to help refine throughout his career. This fourteen track collection saw Bibio bring an increased confidence to his music, highlighting his virtuosic guitar playing and shedding light on his more whimsical pop inclinations that he's explored on releases since then. Available on vinyl for the first time since its original release over 10 years ago, Hand Cranked makes for a perfect lazy Sunday listening, a nostalgic drive through the country or simply a peak into an artist beginning to discover the full breadth of his talent.

      WXAXRXP Session

        No. 2 in this essential series for Warp fans old and new. Star signing Bibio's idiosyncratic of pastoral electronic folk, peppered with hip-hop production and soulful vocals made a huge impact when he first came on the scene ten years ago.

        These four tracks, plucked from the artist's expansive discography, highlight the delicate and organic side to this producer beautifully, redolent of rolling green hills and the indelible English countryside, given a modern spin and electric hum. There's no one quite like Bibio, yet his vibrations and inflections are so joyous and accessible to all.

        "Lovers Carvings", surely the EPs highlight sets this tone perfectly - a song based on vocal harmonies that's make Fleet Foxes takes note, delicately picked guitar lines and a gentle percussive thrust carrying it ever forward and into the hearts and minds of its listeners. 


        STAFF COMMENTS

        Barry says: While Bibio has been moving more towards an effervescent distillation of disco and indie-electronics, this session for Warp includes some of his most airy, beautiful pieces, and needs to be heard by anyone with a passing interest in his music. If you don't like this, you don't like Bibio.

        Bibio returns in 2019 with ‘Ribbons’. Following his ambient atmospheric project, ‘Phantom Brickworks’, Stephen Wilkinson returns to the path of structured songwriting last explored on 2016’s ‘A Mineral Love’. Ribbons yields folkloric charm with an organic palette, incorporating a mostly acoustic-led approach exploring ‘60s and ‘70s psychedelia, soul, ambient, electronic and field recordings.

        The title ‘Ribbons’ is extracted from the most electronic-leaning track on the album, ‘Pretty Ribbons And Lovely Flowers’. On the track, haunting, processed female vocals illuminate a route through dark ambience and a repeating earthy distorted chord sequence. Referencing the endless ribbons of analogue tape and film used in his music, photography and cinematic work, the album artwork is designed by Wilkinson, where his portrait offers a window onto an English woodland scene with spring bluebells adorned with ribbons.

        Wilkinson’s folk influences span ‘60s and ‘70s styles from Britain, Ireland and America; he mixes influences of homegrown acid folk with the dreamy harmonies of its Californian counterpart. He also pays homage to his past J Dilla and Madlib-inspired works, this time drawing influence from the eras and records those producers sampled - such as ‘60s and ‘70s Dionne Warwick, Dee Dee Sharp and other soul artists - but rather than relying on sampling records, Wilkinson creates his homages from scratch with appropriate instrumentation.

        With this latest album Wilkinson oscillates between genres, pairing the unknown with the familiar and moving forward in a way that only he knows how to.

        STAFF COMMENTS

        Barry says: Bibio has straddled a wide variety of styles over his (almost) 15-year recorded output, from the lo-fi ambience of 'Fi', the syncopated folky pluckings of 'Silver Wilkinson' and 2016's pumping electronic odyssey, 'A Mineral Love'. This newest outing takes all those wonderfully accomplished but stylistically disparate outings and perfectly weaves them together into a languid but varied musical quilt for 'Ribbons'. Quintessentially Bibio but building upon his tendency for variety and creative expertise. Properly lovely stuff.

        Bibio

        Phantom Brickworks

          Bibio returns with a new album titled ‘Phantom Brickworks’. The nine track collection demonstrates a more atmospheric side to the Warp wunderkind. ‘Phantom Brickworks’ is an eerie reminder of industries past, a tour of desolate buildings where nature has taken over man-made dereliction.

          “I don’t believe in ghosts but I do believe places can be haunted by meaning. Places change, not always for the better and not always by natural, benevolent or politically sound means. A place can be charged with atmosphere because of what it has been through or what it has been.

          “‘Phantom Brickworks’ is a collection of mostly improvised musical pieces, that for some years now, have provided me with a mental portal into places and times - some real, some imaginary, some a combination of both. Human beings are highly sensitive to the atmospheres of places, which can be enhanced or dramatically altered when you learn the context of their history. Echoes and voices can sometimes be heard, in some way or another. Places sometimes have things to say.” - Bibio.

          STAFF COMMENTS

          Barry says: From 'A Mineral Love's grooving, disco-tinged synth-heavy body-movers to this haunting suite of stretched drones, tentative piano and dusty strings. It's quite a leap, but with a producer this skilled, it's no surprise it's as hypnotic and well made as anything else he's ever put out. Completely different, but just as brilliant.

          A Badman Sound / Heath Town / Inf Inf Inf Inf

            THIS IS A RECORD STORE DAY 2016 EXCLUSIVE, LIMITED TO ONE PER PERSON.

            Record Store Day rave 12” from Warp mainstays Mark Pritchard, Bibio and Clark.

            Mark Pritchard kicks off the 12 with throwback jungle anthem ‘A Badman Sound’; the classic Amen break gets laced with rave stabs and intermittent dub sirens.

            ‘Heath Town’ is the opposite of what you’d expect from Bibio. In particular, the second half takes stylistic cues from ‘A Badman Sound’ and features the popular, euphoric James Brown-produced ‘Yeah Woo’ sample.

            Clark winds down with ‘Inf Inf Inf Inf’, a more ambient sound that brings in broken beats and is reminiscent of early Aphex Twin.

            2016 is an exciting year for all three artists:

            In May, Mark Pritchard is releasing his first album under his own name.

            In April, Bibio releases his fifth album on Warp, A Mineral Love.

            And after releasing his most successful album yet in late 2014, Clark returns with ‘The Last Panthers’ record, inspired by his score of the Sky Arts drama series of the same name.

            For fans of: Aphex Twin, Autechre, Special Request, Om Unit

            Vinyl 12" in 3mm spine sleeve with centre holes (in Warp house bag).

            Limited to 500 copies.

            Mind Bokeh

              The anticipated follow up to Bibio's celebrated first album for Warp in 2009, "Ambivalence Avenue". "Mind Bokeh" has exceeded our expectations with its full on, neon-lit pop whilst not compromising on any of the vintage, textured production that makes up Bibio’s trademark sound. In fact, "Mind Bokeh" could be considered the night-time counterpart to "Ambivalence Avenue"'s more pastoral, sun-flecked tones. You know that party you have where the music is pulled in wildly different directions, but comes together as a whole? This is the meandering trip "Mind Bokeh" takes us on, encompassing everything from  "Ambivalence Avenue" style wonky-hop and DJ Shadowesque beats, via dreamy Crosby, Stills and Nas-influenced psych-pop and energetic, shouty indie-punk to introspective electronica and jubilant African highlife. Off the beaten track and back again, it's a journey you're sure to enjoy.

              The Apple And The Tooth

                Acclaimed producer and instrumentalist Bibio (aka Stephen Wilkinson) follows the album "Ambivalence Avenue" with "The Apple And The Tooth". The album is a new release that is good enough to be a stand alone set, featuring four brand new Bibio tracks. It also forms a companion piece to "Ambivalence Avenue", featuring eight reworkings of tracks from that album - some haunting, some vibrant, all impressive - by artists renowned (Clark, Wax Stag aka Friendly Fires' visual collaborator Rob Lee), new (Lone, Leatherette, The Gentleman Losers) and very familiar (Bibio himself). Featuring a similar woozy folk-meets-wonky-hop-meets-electronica vibe to his previous outing, "The Apple And The Tooth" is another essential birra Bibio.
