Keep an eye on: Hibou

At SGTMT HQ we’ve had enough of winter. We’ve had enough of de-icing our outside latrine. We’ve had enough of wearing Tom’s homemade itchy squirrel-hide knitwear. We’ve had enough of grey and enough of damp. Cold is no longer our friend and overcast is an evil enemy of our once bright moods. We’ve had enough. We protest.

Joining in our protest is Peter Michel aka Hibou. He’s 19, from Seattle Yankland and is producing the kinda of beach haze, summer evening tunes that bring a small ray of joy through the cloudy & cold English skies.

We’re told he spent a year touring North America and Europe as the drummer of Craft Spells (Captured Tracks). But this pursuit has been abandoned in favour of the his new project Hibou. He’s just released Hollow/Glow and we eagerly await future delights.
