Bibio: Aberriw to Ynyslas Dunes
Bibio’s Flickr is full of some great subtle saturated personal photos that would make amazing album covers for music of his nature. In a good way Bibio has this wonderful european back country feel to everything to puts his hands on. Seems to me that he spends his day taking photos of friends and surroundings with his Holga and records music onto a 4 track recorder in the forest and only goes home because the sun is going down. It’s like some odd Boards of Canada dream that features the early set of Fred Penner’s Place. Let me know if i’m losing you on the Fred Penner part.
Bibio – Aberriw[audio:aberriw.mp3]
Bibio – Looking Through The Facets Of A Plastic Jewel[audio:jewel.mp3]
Bibio – Bewley In Grey[audio:grey.mp3]
You can find all these tracks either off Bibio’s Fi or Hand Cranked LPs on Mush Records.

Pictures are awesome! Was wondering about the flash audio player…I’ve seen that style in several places and was curious if you had to build it from scratch or found it somewhere?

I think its a free plug-in on WordPress but Scott would know best, it definitely makes everything look great when you layout an mp3 into a post

@ Brandon Cole: I use this one on my blog and I believe it’s the same one: http://www.1pixelout.net/code/audio-player-wordpress-plugin/ It is a plug-in for WP and it’s very, very easy to setup and use
These songs are a great listen Scott, thanks!

Good old Fred Penner. He swore at my friends when they where driving down the street because my friend was dating his daughter. I guess he didn’t approve. I used to love watching his show on TV. Amazing photos and music, that you for sharing. :)
