Bibio continues his evolution with MIND BOKEH, leading with the moody, mysterious layers of at the start of "Excuses" that finally open up to reveal his vocals and, later on, some electro beats. The harpsichord dissonance at the start of "Pretentious" soon swings into 70s-style pop-funk that continues onto the instrumental bursts of "Anything New." The funk goes more blatant with the irrepressible bass on "Light Seep," while "Take Off Your Shirt" takes on a Phoenix-like rock vibe. A psychedelic feel envelops "Artists' Valley" and "K Is For Kelson" only amplifies the 70s pop feel. The title track itself seems to have wandered in from a Boards of Canada album, but the melancholy tenderness of "More Excuses" or the perkiness saxophone of "Feminine Eye" is Bibio's alone. And even as "Saint Christopher" wanders into light house territory, it's delicacy shows off how Bibio's transition to full-on electronic musician continues apace.

I like track 3 of this album, as the snippets actually reminds me of a delightful children's song, much like from Sesame Street, or some other thing.
