Stephen Wilkinson, better known under the stage name Bibio, announced the forthcoming release of Phantom Brickworks, a nine-track collection of mostly improvised musical pieces expected on 3rd november on Warp. you are invited to preview Phantom Brickworks III and Phantom Brickworks III (edit) and follow Bibio among dreamy autumn landscapes provided by the artist himself, who directed a spectral video for the occasion.
“I don’t believe in ghosts but I do believe places can be haunted by meaning. Places change, not always for the better and not always by natural, benevolent or politically sound means. A place can be charged with atmosphere because of what it has been through or what it has been.”
Bibio supervised also the making of the limited edition of Phantom Brickworks, a double vinyl with inner and outer sleeves printed using a hand-inked letterpress, which is unfortunately already out of stock. however, you may pre-order more widely available formats, including a standard edition of the double vinyl, here or here.
