Today’s track comes from Bibio, also known as English musician Stephen Wilkinson. This song is taken from the 2006 album Hand Cranked, on Mush Records. The dude is named after a whole mess of flies. Wilkinson began his musical career while he was studying “sonic arts” at Middlesex University; his early work incorporates found sounds and field recordings along with tape looped guitars/effects. Apparently, his first record, Fi, was recommended to Mush by none other than Marcus Eoin of Boards of Canada. You might have heard some of his newer stuff (released on Warp Records) in commercials, but, if you ask me, I would just stick with the three albums (and one EP) released on Mush.
