Stephen James Wilkinson (a.k.a Bibio) will soon return to Warp with a new album, titled Phantom Brickworks.
The nine-track collection is a collection of "mostly improvised musical pieces, that for some years now, have provided me with a mental portal into places and times—some real, some imaginary, some a combination of both," Bibio explains. "Human beings are highly sensitive to the atmospheres of places, which can be enhanced or dramatically altered when you learn about the context of their history. Echoes and voices can sometimes be heard, in some way or another. Places sometimes have things to say.”
The LP is available on limited edition double vinyl, with inner and outer sleeves printed using a hand-inked letterpress, the entire print process being attended by Bibio himself. The album will also be available in the usual more widely available formats, including a standard edition of the double vinyl.
