The Bibs

From The Fish Houses

Mysterious, moody, basement trio The Bibs present their debut lp, a 12-string electric DIY Detroit basement folk rock statement in the crude tradition of Index’s own confusing reality music. And worth noting that the jangle/folk spice of From The Fish Houses comes not only from the group’s Michigan weirdo roots, but also from antipodean forward/free-thinking minds like Mad Nanna, The Cannanes and Tall Dwarfs. Wayward & busted melodies, muffled percussion & delirium sounds in general steer these songs, burrowing in deep like earworms in reverse. Features Chris Durham (Church Shuttle, Quilt Boy, etc) and Travis Galloway (Siobhan, etc), both formerly of Roach Clip and forever All Gone figureheads.

Vinyl LP | $13.00
