This Just In: Serious

There’s a running joke amongst some members of Team Sweat about Bibio. The dude’s made so much different-sounding stuff that he’s hard to pinpoint (unless you’re a super fan). There have been about a dozen instances where a Bibio song’s played in the wild and the exclamation/inquiry “Damn, this is GOOD – who is it?” arises. The answer, invariably, is Bibio. After writing that I realize it’s harder to explain inside jokes that I initially thought. Regardless, what’s not hard to explain is how freakin’ good the new Bibio EP is. And, in typical fashion, it’s stylistically different-enough that previous offerings that I’m sure we’ll be out one night, hear a great song and as wonder who it is. The Serious EP is Bibio’s collaborative effort with singer Oliver St. Louis and touches on funk, freestyle, new jack swing, r&b, and glitch – so ya know, a perfect-sounding mix for late and later MIAMI nights. I know you trust me completely, but in case you need further convincing, take a listen the The Serious sampler below for a taste. Gobs of in-stocks this week for you to devour as well!!! -MLE

Bibio – The Serious EP 12”
Listen: “The Serious EP Sampler”
“His first music since the release of his 7th album, Bibio hooks up with collaborator, Olivier St. Louis (Olivier Daysoul) for an EP brim filled with discoed delights and funky flecked rhythms. The title is tongue in cheek of sorts, with the lyrical content covering confused loves, blurred lines, unnecessary stresses and lonely nights. Serious only in the feat of love. The terrifically groovy guitar playing is the highlight of ‘Why So Serious’ though it is almost equally matched by St. Louis’ excellent vocal delivery, which glides from a pained whisper to a wailing chanteuse in seconds.” -Bleep
