Warp Records от лица компании Warp Records ASCAP, Warp Music Publishing, CMRRA, LatinAutor и другие авторские общества 5. Wake Up. Mind Bokeh is a studio album by British electronic musician Bibio, released on Warp. It was released on 29 March 2011 in the United States and 4 April 2011 in the rest of the world. Bibio described the album as a balance of the familiar and the non-familiar. The title comes from a Japanese word Bokeh, which means the blurry, out-of-focus part of a photograph. Album 2011 12 Songs. Mind Bokeh Bibio. free to Bibio Mind Bokeh Excuses, Pretentious and more. 12 tracks 52:19. Mind Bokeh - whose title was inspired by the photography term for the way a lens renders out-of-focus points of light - is true to its name and Wilkinsons hyperactive creativity, but not in obvious ways. Though the title track dapples sparkling electronics over a luminous haze of distant nature samples, the rest of the album isnt exactly blurry. In fact, its sounds are often surprisingly hard-edged and chilly, especially compared to Ambivalence Avenues summery vibe.

Released by: Warp Records. As its name suggests, Mind Bokeh is fluid and formless, committing to pop structure and melodies one moment only to eschew them the next, often all within the same track. Read full review. Mind Bokeh, 2011. Excuses, 05:58. Pretentious, 06:02. Released: Mar 2011. Mind Bokeh, his best yet, has all that and more. Steely Dan, Nick Drake, J Dilla, Brian Eno, Stereolab, Jim O'Rourke at his sunniest: it all finds its way in. But it all makes sense, bound by Bibio's bright-eyed curiosity and his brilliant sonics, so crystalline they could soundtrack a Lenscrafters ad

Reviews of the Bibio - Mind Bokeh (1):
Unereel
I would hope by now that the truly discerning listener isn’t buying albums out of impulse or after hearing/reading the harkened banter famously deployed by a critic’s feed of crap. I understand and respect the place of most music critics and find their (positive) descriptions of sound an enhanced extension of my own personal thoughts, but I cannot stand their harsh and relentlessly negative view of the obscure. When I imagine music being rated at the top of its mark, it would have to implore some kind of feeling that when I return to this music, picking it out of a playlist or holding the cover art, I receive the same emotional rush of beauty and intrigue from when it was last heard.

Artists are often criticized for staying inside their comfort zone or breaking too far out of it. Are you kidding me? Why should it be judged so irrefutably that an artist does or does not know how to make their own music? What’s wrong with maintaining a strong, unique voice? What’s wrong with stretching the imagination and the limits surrounding them?

I’m glad Bibio is evolving into a full-fledged producer, one with gusto and the strength to always find new fans. There’s never anything phony or tried in his music, never a question of why is that there. Bibio has gained recognition solely based on his creativity. I have always enjoyed the presence of music that I would sit around and say, ‘I could’ve written that’ but with Bibio, I don’t get that feeling. His music is so unique that I can barely conceive how it was made, let alone make it up on my own. It has a very fresh and freestyle feel to it - not quite improvisational, but not quite scripted, which makes this music even more attractive, constantly beckoning fans old and new right to its front door. One cannot help but keep on coming back for more.
