Stephen Wilkinson is a class apart and his 10th album (see what he did) is a delight of vintage guitars and old school production techniques producing smooth laid back grooves with a hint of folkiness coasting subtle highs and lows. He calls it his ‘party album’ to celebrate this most  illustrious milestone.

Bibio is certainly adept at this protean approach to his music, in fact he thrives on the mercurial process with each release to contrast past endeavours as he glides through Bibio-time. As such, this could be seen as his yacht album reminiscent of Michael Macdonald and his more contemporary protégé Thundercat, but this is not imitation it is an accomplished collection with a definite Wilkinson signature sound.
