Paplib’s music is like a known concept re-interpreted through the vocoder of God. He lives in a world of bleating stars, a vaporous universe of loops and abyssal darkness.


Inspired by bands such as Panda Bear and SJ Esau, Paplib consists of one Germain Caillet, formerly of the band Bellyache. He hails from Rennes, France. Working with pedals, repetitive and insistent, he creates what he calls, “grooves mélancoliques”. His songs have been featured in these compilations: Une Rentrée 2010 Volume 2, Collection Printemps/Été 2010, Objectif 2011, and Objectif 2011 Volume 2, all released by Les Inrockuptibles.


The verdict by Subjective e-zine: “Paplib : substance extraterrestre dont l’absorption a des effets bénéfiques variés selon le moment de la prise.”


[i.e. Paplib: alien substance whose absorption has beneficial effects varied by time of dosing.]
