Since 2005, Stephen Wilkinson has forged a unique sound as Bibio—organic synthesis brimming with pastoral secrets. But his eighth record pushes into funkier territory (“Town and Country”, “Light Up the Sky”).

Still, Wilkinson's trademark remains intact: “Raxeria” is classic Bibio, evoking a chillwave makeover of the Trumpton U.K. TV theme.

Ahhh yeah

You can totally pop and lock to this.
