"We're so good there's not enough bees, pluses, lighthouses or whatever grademarks journalists use to celebrate our records. The radio stations refuse to play our songs lest an euphoric sense of class war should spread across the nation. Fuck you, be happy, that's the ticket." - Air France

难得见到electro-pop团用器乐氛围开场和结束,music确实有Boat Club的味道

CD & BL    06/25/2008

download here, thax njst

近日暂停一切聊天8卦社交活动,专心追BL,NoNoNo,不是Boy's Love,是Boston Leagel。之前看Justice都没这么喜欢,相见恨晚哪。既然是律师剧,头脑口才不用说,损人搞笑也是一绝,Alan越看越attractive(果然男人不是靠张脸的),和Denny间的友谊也让人好生慕

说到搞笑,那天在群里发了一链接,结果Ark酱说没觉得哪里好笑,莫非只有迷恋动画的Otaku或者深受日系文化毒害的小青年,才能看出喜感来?人与人之间的差异真是奇妙,就好像,如果问The Onion Movie哪段最好笑,答案一定不会完全相同。btw,如果你觉得BL不好笑,那我只能怀疑你的IQ水平了

RQTN是法国hardcore乐队Atheist Prayer前吉它手Mathieu Artu的个人project,一人身兼创作吉它贝斯小提琴钢琴等多项职务,现场演出时则由Time to BurnGregory Hoepffner帮忙打鼓,首张EP亦有他的协助

第一首Morning & Handwritten Letters,清脆悦耳的木琴曾经一度让我想到了Kyte,振奋人心的鼓击和史诗味道的提琴协奏亦让人印象深刻,第二曲像TSB说的"typical post-rock",钢琴氛围,电音后摇...虽然只有五曲,却各有特点,个人团能做成这样很强大了

花伦 - Silver Daydream [Album] 2008 Fox Tail Record


个人还是对花伦比较有爱,当初也是刚听完就去淘宝定了Silver Daydream,为了省运费顺带入手IV。人气方面的确是惘闻胜,毕竟是老团,欧洲演出后新专在国外也leak了,而花伦在国外大概还寂寂无名(连myspace都没哎),不过旋律真的不错,相比之下惘闻就显得有点老气了

那天群里8卦到花伦的新鼓手是个女生,之前没怎么注意,再回去听的时候就觉得鼓的部分有点弱(不是说打得不好,只是不算突出),再强点不知会不会更好

之前基本没买过国内乐队发行的CD,两个团的专辑包装都有待改进

euphoria的新专还是要期待一下,官网做得真好看。下面是个不算新的video,今天才看到,也是成员自己制作的,简单的动画,配上音乐就变得美妙无比,那天听到有人说,听GIAA的时候看到了光,我一点也不奇怪,那种感动与共鸣,大概只有自己才会明白吧

"I first heard Denmark's Northern Portrait last autumn at a club in Gothenburg ... it was one of those too-rare moments when everyone recognised immediately a great new sound. Northern Portrait's debut ep, The Fallen Aristocracy, is a solid start creating what they call 'sophisticated guitar pop" (think The Lodger, The Siddeleys, The Housemartins), although there are moments when it sounds a little too heavily influenced by The Smiths. The title track is not just Northern Portrait's strongest effort, but an instant classic. Taking its cue from Pulp's retro pop grandeur, The Fallen Aristocracy is eloquent and nervy and melodramatic, combining louche degradation with the slyly insistent pop of early 80s Factory. If they can build on this classic, then their debut album will be an essential purchase." --Fire Escape Talking

Northern Portrait是支来自丹麦Copenhagen的三人indie pop团体,成立于07年夏天,今年三月在美国清新厂牌Matinée Records推出首张EP"The Fallen Aristocracy",便被拿来与the Smiths, Gene, Orange Juice, Aztec Camera等乐队相提并论(The Smiths, Echo and the Bunnymen, 和The Housemartins也是他们的影响团),官网对这张EP的介绍是“will shake the indiepop world to its very foundations” ,第二张EP"Napoleon Sweetheart"将于7月发行

PS: Stefan和Michael组过一个团名为The Mirror Lounge,在06年发行过一张专辑"Les Elegantiers",已停止发售也很难找,不过官网有4首免费下载曲目,顺便附在后面的Download里

Korean Post Rock    06/08/2008
印象里韩国除了盛产流行偶像团体、情歌和民谣歌手,再就是清新淡雅的indie-pop,未想到后摇虽比不上日本来得繁荣,还是有值得推荐的

Loro's(로로스) 是支来自韩国的六人乐队,结成于05年,06年开始正式活动,推出过一张单曲Scent Of Orchid,随后'성장통'被收入合辑History Of Bbang中,今年发行的"Pax"是他们的首张专辑。宣传语中写道,这是 “永恒的少年少女们的梦和爱”,“'Pax'是和平的意思,虽然我们不能做着同样的梦拥有同样的爱,可是拥有梦想永远活在爱里,这点大家都是一样的,我内心的pax,你我之间的pax,我们大家的Pax...你手握住的不仅仅是张唱片”

最早在djibouti87同学的wishlist见到这张,没有太在意(其实心里在想,泡菜国能出什么好PR,连好的rock都没几支),今日在某forum下到,听完颇为惊艳,看来泡菜国也不可小觑。钢琴声沉静而清冷地响起,思绪便在无边夜里蔓延开来,伴着温柔低沉的男声,"i fall out of life vanish to nowhere, i fall apart pieces turn to dust, i fade out lost to all that is so real, i didn't say but do my words seem real now",失落和迷茫,就这样从歌声里细细碎碎的浸透过来,绵长低迷的大提琴弦音,拉扯出忧伤的弧度,直到与鼓和吉它汇成阵阵巨大的波澜,演绎出后摇的跌宕起伏,i say...i say...i love you...这是i say几乎也是整张专辑的基调,沉静优美,波澜叠出。Doremi有点funk风,后段的bass和keyboard合奏值得加分,바람(track 8)里的吉它和提琴好听得无法言喻,同名曲Pix反复唱着dona nobis pachem(give us peace),结尾处的shoegaze音符更添了几分震撼,经历后摇的洗礼过后,最后一曲迷离的She Didn`t Go To The Party着实让人沉醉

PS: douban也不可小觑,居然有人去看了他们的现场,感想为“08目前最惊艳的后摇乐队”,提琴女染了白色头发,嗲的

“Songs as good as the synth drenched, guitar driven 'Down The Alleyway' don't come along everyday. The fact that Slow Down Tallahassee have managed to pack killer song after killer song onto this record is sometimes breath taking in it's audacity - it has a near 80s production sound. It's snappy. It's clean but dirty at the same time - the distorted guitars still manage to burst out of the speakers. ” - by Trev lostmusic(www.indie-mp3.co.uk)

“bbc radio 1的huw已在上星期將此sheffield樂團Slow Down Tallahassee,其首張專輯The Beautiful Light選入當週最佳,而Slow Down Tallahassee出道至今由純女子編制改為2女一男的組合,樂風卻已不再是繽紛歡樂polka dot式的復古,對於那從new-pop到80's indie這段時間深戀的自己來說,14曲的The Beautiful Light專輯反比當初寄予厚望the pipettes的處女作,更有稚氣無畏的性格;好比說don't cry baby it's you and me against the world這樣的唱詞搭著na na na,又motherfucking或motherfucker的粗語,她們也能唱出甜蜜可人的天真,且不論歌曲Tallahassee Bop如何偷取suicide/ dna節拍的印象,嘟嘟哇哇地要你隨她們最喜愛的歌來唱合,那彷若每一個音符的心跳, Slow Down Tallahassee都幫你大聲呼了起來.” - beethobear aka大強

Slow Down Tallahassee来自英国sheffield,目前的成员编制不太清楚(3女1男or2女1男?),用她们自己的话来说,“We started the band because we wanted to write songs with warmth and passion. Songs that people could dance to and fall in love with, combining truth with fantasy, exploring the shadows between innocence and corruption. But, above all, our goal has been to make a great pop record” 。最早听到一曲'Limbs',纯净的钢琴和女声,还以为是张可以安静聆听的专辑,到单曲So Much for Love,着实被The Pipettes式的流行复古风吓了一跳,首专风格更为多样,除了Limbs,还有'Electric Sun'这样shoegaze味道的曲目,歌词大胆直白却可爱十足,像是Kiss Me Again里的"Put your lips between my hips and let the motherfucking good times roll",最先会K的是'Baby Don't Cry',"don't cry baby, don't cry baby please, just say that you come home to me. don't cry baby, don't cry baby girl, it's you and me against the world"

大概也就来了20多人,有点出乎意料。所有艺人里面之前只听过Me:mo,nara偏日系,ta们表演的时候,大家都席地而坐静静聆听,很舒服,玩8-bit的在台上都很high,尤其是日本的两位,全情投入忘我演出,光肢体动作就加分不少,不过个人还是比较倾向BAIFAN的作品,旋律悦耳,节奏控制得也好
visual arts配得实在不怎么样

本来是去取相片的,结果要明天才能拿,总不能白跑一趟,于是顺路去淘碟,很久没光顾,还有老板记得偶,指了那一堆碟,大大咧咧地说,两张15块,于是偶就找出了这两张,都是日版未拆,走的时候觉得很对不起他。。。


Criminal Minds S3完结,很想把编剧抽一顿,Lost S4也完了,终于长舒一口气,又把时间穿梭理论复习了一遍,还是有几个地方想不明白。日剧方面,Last Friends彻底拍残,不想多说,野蛮女友到第三集就放弃了,改追木村的Change,难得为政治剧热情一把,前总理大人因为性丑闻下台,能拍到这个份儿上也够可以的了

最近后摇听太多,有点失调 ,决定暂停下载一周,换别的调节下
