Warp Records signee Bibio’s Ribbons LP has been amongst our favourites of 2019.
On that record, the English folk musician blended contemporary songwriting with conventional folk instrumentation, pinned collectively underneath his imagery heavy lyricism. It is a beautiful release, one particular we return to usually.
Yesterday, Bibio released a 10-minute video featuring the musician performing material from that album reside. The reside performances, captured in his dwelling, studio and different areas about England and Wales, are total with the sounds of the surrounding nature.
Unusually, even though there are many instruments playing at when, Bibio chose to play them all himself – primarily overdubbing himself by way of film.
The tracks performed are ‘Ode To A Nuthatch’, ‘Curls’ and ‘Under A Lone Ash’.
The video is supposed to take spot on the final day of summer season.
