Bibio The Green EP on Green Colored 12" Vinyl + Download Card
“I wanted to do a follow up EP with "Dye The Water Green" as it is my favorite track off Silver Wilkinson and I also have a lot of music in my archives that would complement the track well.
"Dinghy" is an old track I recorded with Richard Roberts (now one half Letherette) around 2006. We used to work in an old Victorian pub back in those times, and it was a regular thing that we'd stay behind for a lock-in after hours. Around that time we recorded a lot of stuff together, some in the pub, some in the garden, some by a stream in the woods, some at home. This track was recorded in one take, straight to cassette. It was a time where we played together so much that our sense of rhythm was totally locked, in this track we seemed to respond to each other's timing really naturally.
"The Spinney View of Hinkley Point" is the first track I've released with live drums, as opposed to sampled and chopped on an MPC. I recorded the drums, guitar and bass parts in my friend's shed in rural Somerset.
"Carbon Wulf" is of course a reprise of the album track "Wulf." This was just a straight, one-take improvisation on baritone guitar and a reverb pedal. I crushed the hell out of it with an analogue limiter which game it this uneven fire-damaged sound.
"The other tracks were written some years ago, I rediscovered them while going through my archives and, again, heard them with fresh ears. I decided to revamp them, re-recording the vocal parts and adding more instruments.” - Bibio
