  • Following the success of his debut album, fi, Wolverhampton, England's Stephen Wilkinson, aka Bibio, has assembled Hand Cranked, a fourteen-track collection of idyllic, found-sound and lazy-Sunday musical ramblings. A self-taught musician from an area in central England often referred to as the Black Country, Wilkinson discovered the music of such experimental electronic artists as Aphex Twin, Autechre, and Boards of Canada while studying at the University of LondonÕs Sonic Arts school. He quickly christened himself Bibio (after a fly fishing lure favored by his father) and immersed himself in the new music.

Following the success of his debut album, fi, Wolverhampton, England's Stephen Wilkinson, aka Bibio, has assembled Hand Cranked, a fourteen track collection of idyllic found sound and lazy Sunday musical ramblings. The release maintains a stylistic bond with his debut, again focusing on his love for saturated guitars, warbling effects, and natural beauty, although this time with a slightly more whimsical feel. An increased confidence is also evident, both in the heightened virtuosity of Bibio's guitar playing and with his first appearance as a vocalist on the track, "Abberiw." With his first two albums, Bibio has established himself as an exciting new talent.Enjoy.
