GaBlé  - I'm Ok
Label: Loaf Recordings
Format: CD


Suprisingly coherent and articulate new mini album from wacky French trio GaBlé, whose music combines sounds from household devices and DIY noises with real instruments

GaBlé are a flexible, wacky trio of dormant Normans who satirize everyday issues and hop skip and jump with sounds from household devices, 'bricolage sonore'/DIY noises and, for better or worse 'genuine instruments'. In fact, on their teasing website you can find a drawing of the setup in the studio and see how those ironic, quirky and sweet little songs came to be recorded. The stunning achievement is that 'I'm OK' sounds coherent and articulate. The thirteen brief tracks are built from extremely snappy samples, ranging from digital hardcore to big band jive whilst mixing folky bedroom pop with melodic electronica. The Caen-based trio, who are named after Mathieu Gablé who perhaps stands at the top of the gablé, a triangual front wall, play just about anything that can make a typical sound. Pure multi-instrumental fun par excellence.
