Product description

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 2016s 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 album will be released on the 12th April through Warp Records.A self-taught musician, singer and producer, he plays nearly all of the instrumental parts on the album and unveils new instruments to his palette, bringing in mandolins, fiddle and other stringed instruments which give a new flavor to his music. But, while the sonics of the album are based around acoustic and other traditional instruments, the title Ribbons is extractedfrom 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 ambiance 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 designedby Wilkinson, where his portrait offers a window onto an English woodland scene with spring bluebells adorned with ribbons.Wilkinsons 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 his latest album Ribbons, Wilkinson oscillates between genres, pairing the unknown with the familiar and moving forward in a way that only he knows how to.
