In anticipation of the positive reviews of Bibio’s Phantom Brickworks that are about to populate the internet, we present to you, kind reader, this game of Bibio Bingo. The rules are simple: as you read up on the album, return here to mark any characteristic phrases that you find. If you locate an instance of every phrase in a row, column, or diagonal, you win!*

* Unfortunately, we don’t have the budget for prizes. But hey, go listen to the album. Isn’t that reward enough?


Some releases are so incredible we just can’t help but exclaim EUREKA! While many of our picks here defy categorization and explore the constructed boundaries between ‘music’ and ‘noise,’ others complement, continue, or rupture traditions that provide new forms and ways of listening. Not all of our favorites will be listed here, but we think each EUREKA! album is worthy of careful consideration. This section is a work-in-progress, so expect its definition to be in perpetual flux.
