Bibio – Mind Bokeh – Album Sampler

Typically I might be wary of any band described as “pop pastoralist” (Pitchfork’s words), but this sampler actually sounds kinda nice. I’ll be looking for this one on emusic in March.

Pitchfork says:

Mind Bokeh, the new album from the electronic pop pastoralist and Boards of Canada disciple Bibio, arrives March 29 in the U.S. and April 4 in the rest of the world, via Warp. The follow-up to 2009’s BNM’ed Ambivalence Avenue takes its title from the Japanese word “bokeh”, which means the blurry, out-of-focus part of a photograph– a very specific term that nicely captures Bibio’s distinct brand of atmospheric haze.
