Even though Bibio has entitled his debut album FI, perhaps a better title would have been "lo-fi." The Englishman's sense of folk is permeated through with fuzz and saturation for some surprising creations. The gentle picking of "Bewley in White" comes accompanied by a twee little flute. Bibio isn’t afraid to include other sources of sound, either: "It Was Willow" has some skeletal percussion; "I'm Rewinding It..." seems composed almost entirely out of feedback; and “Lakeside” has some fragmented voices that hints at its wall-of-sound ending. The dreamy reverb on “Wet Flakey Bark” seems to be a textured tone poem -- think of the images accompanying Aphex Twin’s SELECTED AMBIENT WORKS, VOL. 2. Some of his compositions feel a little unfinished, however, as if he'd discovered a great riff but didn't know what else to do with it, like on the short but aborted "London Planes." But the gentle back and forth strumming of “At the Chase” makes up for any shortcomings. Quite beguiling as a whole.

This recording is almost entirely folky guitars (all pick and no strum) and bittersweet melodies recorded in various lofi formats that enhance harmonics, add warbling microtonal variations, turn tiny melodic motifs into luminescent vapor trails, and provide a vibe of nostalgia and home made music. In some moods the album feels like inconsequential, repetitive folk noodling with greater than average wow and flutter, and in others feels drenched in emotional resonance, evoking images of grainy, saturated super eight films. "Fi" is most likely to find favor with those who appreciate the quiet, nostalgic, experimental and melodic side of electronic music.
