STABLE – „if only you could see me now“
STABLE a nearly single handedly produced work, which delivers any famous, venue-filling colleagues; an ’in your face’!
The twelve songs, which constitute the debut album of STABLE, are far greater than their sum.
They are joy, medicine, catharsis, word-wise and essence!
STABLE stems from Vienna. He is composer and text writer, singer and arranges the musical constitution single handedly – singer, guitar, keyboards, bass and drums. And the band sounds as tight as the music that is being played. Including the two guest musicians featured on this album STABLE worked two years to offer this masterpiece; first alone, then in end-phase with Andreas Fennes: the producer of What’s That Noise Studios which resulted in “if only you could see me now” and lastly with the aide of Crater8 Records this heart-throbbing album was brought to the ears of the public.
The result is a conceptual boom, multifaceted with passion of effort and analysis, unrelented;
the musical efforts of STABLE must be heard!
Congruent to, but not exclusive to, the first-class finesse of indie rock produced in Britian over the last 20 years!
Harsh guitar melded with longing lyrics, soulful voice, eccentric keys, mixed with electronic drive in a concrete manner, through stormy tones and tight passages while dreamy melodies fly over steady and firm drumbeats. One thinks of names like MUSE or PLACEBO – grunge pop. Awe over pianistic overtures, that are named of grand places flood the mind and still the associations remain associations. The quality of STABLE segregates and all associations fade into nothingness… he emerges clearly in a league of his own and memory of STABLE superceeds and remains.
In order to love the songs from “if only you could see me now” one must do simple things: listen, press play, sit firmly with no distractions like sms, email or the like… and simply engage… then do it over again and take in the next layer offered by this album… purely and completely.
A live version of this album is off the table at the moment as quality-compromise is off the rouster for STABLE and a live band can’t offer what STABLE offers as genius one-man artist.
“if only you could see me now” = British inspired Indie Rock with unconditional lack of compromise,
at top level international niveau.
