开始之前,不得不先提一下法国folktronica团体Hoorah!Hello,成员包括Oto Efekt前主唱Phoene Somsavath(EP在网络厂牌ponirepublic提供免费下载),流行团体comme des garçons, Mademoiselle的吉它手Massinissa Naït Mouloud,以及键盘手Pierre Lefeuvre,also known as Saycet

Saycet06年的首专One day at home,细致美妙的glitch,兼有Tycho的温暧和Kettel的灵气,是IDM乐迷不容错过的电音佳作。而时隔四年后的第二张专辑,找来Phoene Somsavath担任主唱,与其说是Pierre Lefeuvre的新作,不如说是Hoorah!Hello联手Saycet,玩起成员们自创的"ambient chinese pop"。法籍女生的声音初听不太像欧洲人,也没日本妹那么甜,感觉更偏东南亚,见过相片更坚定了这种猜测,真是chinese也说不定

若说15还停留在过去,当钢琴在Easy开头响起,新生已经开始,清凉慵懒的女声,带着回声营造的飘浮迷幻感,配以细碎的电音和白噪,颇有几分日本女生Caroline的味道。Opal将迷蒙的人声吟唱和IDM电气节拍融合得几近完美。晶莹剔透的合成音符,与桀骜不驯层层推进之Glitch,让Her Movie在优雅与躁动间流畅更迭。依然循着键盘和IDM/glitch pop式电音肌理,We Walk Fast让人有着置身无垠星空下的幻美感,又忍不住想起挚爱厂牌n5MD来。Sunday Morning跳起优美的圆舞曲,旋转流畅,快速碎拍的鼓击就像在合着节奏拍手。以mum and dad命名的两首曲,采样都有着特别的精灵古怪,而Fireflies高潮处像暗夜花火般绚烂,一如当年的Boy is FictionMotoro Faam,Kien-Lang是清新的餐后甜品,夜晚听着窗外淅淅沥沥的雨声,整个世界都安静下来...总的来说,虽然不像前作那般充满韵律感令人无法抵抗随之手舞足蹈,这样的改变依然让人惊喜

今天row发来短信,打算放弃余下的几节钢琴课,于是落得我一人搭地铁去琴行。当初执意要学琴,大概只是一时头脑发热,心里念着,那是“死前要做的100件事”之一,还是没办法认同那些把“小时候未完成的梦想,留给下一代”的父母啊。然而凡事都是做起来难,要牺牲要付出,零基础,工作又忙,一把年纪了还在练指法数拍子,加上进步不大也够打击人。虽然“经历比结果重要”,偶尔也会怀疑起自己最初的热情来

我想,我还是喜欢着piano的吧


90后法国小青年Josh Todd aka Bark Cat Bark,擅用多种乐器配以简约编曲,气质兼具欧洲古典及法国民谣,被拿来与Zach Condon和Owen Pallett相提并论也不足为奇,以下这张钢琴合辑由乐迷自选,曲目分别来自专辑A Lifi, Mathilde, The Final Letters以及几首年代久远的demo

Savoy Grand来自英国小城诺丁汉,97年成立,后签至国厂牌Glitterhouse Records,曾被NME评论为"one of the best new bands to watch in the future",00及01年分別有Dirty pillows专辑及Survivor EP等颇受好评的作品

02年的Burn the Furniture(专辑名源自早期EP的同名曲,"they don't build anything anymore, just burn the furniture in your yard"),包括后来的People and What They Want,走的都是氛围实验的路线,沿用一贯舒缓的步调,即使像Business Is Good里的white noise,Recovery Positions里的电音,也依然维持了专辑的整体性。而04年稍转型的EP The Lost Horizon,sadcore民谣气质让人想起Red House Painters和Low,其中有我喜欢的一曲Reason to leave,飘渺的吉它音色,简约的鼓和贝斯,安静的琴键,层层叠叠堆砌出往昔的回声,那时Graham Langley的声音还略显中性,哀伤悲婉却有着安抚人心的力量,像一个过来人唱着,"cause u made me what i am, then you left me..."

Accident Book作为Savoy Grand的第四张专辑,延续了这种甜蜜温柔的悲伤,Graham用更为沉静的声音,唱着寂寞和失落

喜欢The Home Song Stories开头那句,"If everyone has one story which defines them, which shapes who they are, then this is mine",一件微小的事物或许就能影响人的一生,They all have to go in the book. The Accident Book
