Bibio - A Mineral Love
Bibio returns with his fifth studio album on Warp, ‰Û÷A Mineral Love‰۪, a record that draws influences from across several decades, coloured with texture and detail that only a seasoned and ceaselessly inspired producer can create.
‰Û÷A Mineral Love‰۪ is Bibio‰۪s most varied album yet, drawing at times from 1960s rock to 1970s experimental folk and 1980s funk and soul.
The record elaborates on certain sounds Bibio has carved out for himself throughout his career as a musician - from the playful guitar-picking of ‰Û÷Saint Christopher‰۪ to the pastoral and nostalgia-flecked ‰Û÷C‰۪est La Vie‰۪ and ‰Û÷Wren Tails‰۪.
‰Û÷Light Up The Sky‰۪ is one of many elegantly structured songs on the album that demonstrate just how much Bibio has progressed as a songwriter since 2010‰۪s ‰Û÷Mind Bokeh‰۪.
Collaborations with Gotye and Olivier St Louis (‰Û÷The Way You Talk‰۪ and ‰Û÷Why So Serious?‰۪) further create a variety in styles, anchored by vocal refrains and pop hooks that replay in your head days after listening.
CD in wallet with booklet. Double LP in gatefold sleeve with printed inners and digital download card.
‰Û÷A Mineral Love‰۪ follows the recent reissues of Bibio‰۪s much-loved albums ‰Û÷Fi‰۪ and ‰Û÷Ambivalence Avenue‰۪.
