This album was recorded in a bedroom of a terraced house in Wolverhampton, England. Apologies to my neighbours.

'Excuses' contains audio excerpts from the documentary 'Eadweard Muybridge, Zoopraxographer' directed by Thom Andersen,produced by New Yorker Films. With kind permission from Dean Stockwell.

I would like to thank all of my friends and family, everyone who has contributed to this album no matter how small the contribution, all the people who have supported me and my music over the years, Warp for being the best label in the world.

Extra special thanks to Holly Fuller - Bove.

I would hope by now that the truly discerning listener isn’t buying albums out of impulse or after hearing/reading the harkened banter famously deployed by a critic’s feed of crap. I understand and respect the place of most music critics and find their (positive) descriptions of sound an enhanced extension of my own personal thoughts, but I cannot stand their harsh and relentlessly negative view of the obscure. When I imagine music being rated at the top of its mark, it would have to implore some kind of feeling that when I return to this music, picking it out of a playlist or holding the cover art, I receive the same emotional rush of beauty and intrigue from when it was last heard.

Artists are often criticized for staying inside their comfort zone or breaking too far out of it. Are you kidding me? Why should it be judged so irrefutably that an artist does or does not know how to make their own music? What’s wrong with maintaining a strong, unique voice? What’s wrong with stretching the imagination and the limits surrounding them?

I’m glad Bibio is evolving into a full-fledged producer, one with gusto and the strength to always find new fans. There’s never anything phony or tried in his music, never a question of why is that there. Bibio has gained recognition solely based on his creativity. I have always enjoyed the presence of music that I would sit around and say, ‘I could’ve written that’ but with Bibio, I don’t get that feeling. His music is so unique that I can barely conceive how it was made, let alone make it up on my own. It has a very fresh and freestyle feel to it - not quite improvisational, but not quite scripted, which makes this music even more attractive, constantly beckoning fans old and new right to its front door. One cannot help but keep on coming back for more.
