His second album on Warp, to be released in April

altAfter several weeks of impatience and intrigue –there’s been a concise announcement on his label’s website since late last year– we can now give you details on Bibio’s second album for Warp. The album, his fifth already, will be in stores on 4th April (a week earlier in the U.S.) with the title “Mind Bokeh”. According to Warp it could be seen as the nocturnal reverse of “Ambivalence Avenue”, on which the pastoral humour so typical of Stephen Wilkinson can still be heard, heavily influenced by British acid folk, psychedelic pop, discoloured electronica a la Boards of Canada and abstract beats. His new songs are described as “neon-lit pop”, and you only have to click after the jump in order to hear the broader sonic palette –psychedelica, sunny, California-style beats, electro-pop and boogie funk– which, according to Bibio himself, is a “balance between the familiar and the non-familiar.”

On the album’s title, Wilkinson says: “Bokeh is the out of focus region of a photograph. It's not a quantifiable thing, but photographers and lens manufacturers are obsessed with it. In Japanese it means “haze”, “blur”, or even “dementia”. I called the album Mind Bokeh because I'm interested in the effect of defocussing your mind, whether through meditation, chemicals or whatever – it's a state of mind quite alien to Westerners.”
