Sibylle Baier

Recorded at home on a reel to reel tape recorder between 1970 and 1973, the songs on "Colour Green" remained unheard for more than 30 years after Sibille Baier gave up her aspirations of becoming a recording artists, instead choosing to move to the US to raise a family. It wasn’t until her son Robbie compiled a CD of her recordings to give to friends and family, that the songs drew the attention of J.Mascis who in turn passed them on to the Orange Twin label who released “Colour Green” in 2006.

Sounding like a cross between Vashti Bunyan and Nico, “Colour Green” is a haunting and dreamlike folk record that sits along side Linda Perhacs “Parralellograms” as one of the great lost albums of the thankfully found.
