Boomkat Product Review:
Bibio's tenth studio album is a celebration of his obsession with vintage guitars that's inspired by classic disco, blue-eyed soul and cosmic pop.
'BIB10' isn't an album that sounds comfortable in 2022. Steven Wilkinson looked back to the "60s, 70s, and 80s" when he was writing it, and escaped into a shimmered world of yacht rock excess and sequined disco grooves. Opener 'Off Goes The Light' sounds like The Smiths with a drum machine and a reverb chamber, while 'Potion' harks back to '80s R&B, prettying it up with talkbox vocals and gleeful heavy metal guitars.
One look at the cover and you should understand how important the guitar is to Wilkinson's process. Since his earliest recordings, it was the guitar that sat at the heart of his productions, and "BIB10" is a journey through decades of guitar-led pop that doesn't shy away from bombast and pure cheese.
