Vignetting the Compost (Mush)

If you consider other electro-folk bands like Caribou or Looper, live instruments (drums, acoustic guitars) might give the music a more organic feel, but the balance teeters heavily toward electronica. With Bibio (AKA Stephen Wilkinson, a British sound-art student and music producer), the opposite is true. Pure digital sounds are mostly absent. Instead it's the acoustic elements combined with other field recordings that are sped up, pitch-altered and looped to create backbeats or entire tracks. The result is a bizarre yet beautifully delicate amalgamation of The Books, Devendra Banhart and Boards of Canada recorded on a warped vinyl platter. Dave Hayden
