Singles Of 2 2007

Explosions In The SkyMew

[079] Explosions In The Sky – Snow And Lights (US, 2000)
[078] The Stills – Lola Stars And Stripes (Canada, 2003)
[077] 陳綺貞 – Pussy (Taiwan, 2007)
[076] Mew – Comforting Sounds (Denmark, 2003)

因為 Aquabug Poe 對電影「勝利之光 Friday Night Lights」的推薦,於是在電影鏡頭的催化之下,找起擔任電影裡大量使用樂團的 Explosions In The Sky 的作品,如此對味/位。還想起剛上大學初接觸後搖那段朦朧亂試,這幾乎被推為後搖界大團的 EITS 是不喜的,然而時間的調解頓停,於是最近我跟著天空爆炸。

079 Snow And Lights
2007 02 26

1 – 1 Explosions In The Sky – Snow And Lights (US, 2000)
2 – 1 Jean-Christian Arod – Detour Nostalgique (Canada, 2005)
3 – 1 Explosions In The Sky – A Song For Our Fathers (US, 2000)
4 – 1 Hammock – Shipwrecked (Flat On Your Back) (US, 2006)
5 – 1 Explosions In The Sky – Home (US, 2004)

Snow And Lights 在爆裂的開頭與結尾,中段的音符像是被輕捧在手掌心,一樣一樣樂器互不打架的立體對話,旋律肌理如此平靜優雅。這禮拜滿分大狂播。

078 Lola Stars And Stripes
2007 02 19

1 – 1 The Stills – Lola Stars And Stripes (Canada, 2003)
2 – 1 Sparklehorse – Sea of Teeth (US, 2001)
3 – 1 The Stills – Ready For It (Canada, 2003)
4 – 1 Eels – In the Yard, Behind the Church (US, 2005)
5 – 2 Sparklehorse – It’s A Wonderful Life (US, 2001)

又過了一次新年,比起跨年倒數的新年,農曆新年有吃又有拿,還可以休息到處人擠人,聽取卡帶都快磨平的新年歌,應該是會高興許多,然而同輩的大家,好像卻對新年越來越感到無聊,家裡的小朋友們還喜歡新年的節慶味嗎?如同小時候的自己般。

電影院的新檔期一遍無聊,看了幾部失望的電影,還是自己拼貼租舊電影回家看的好。像是音樂已經越聽越離大眾口味,不過其實這禮拜上榜的這幾首都可以買到台壓版。

The Stills 的 Ready For It 倒數 2:20 秒超級好聽。I’m ready for it…

077 Pussy
2007 02 12

1 – 1 陳綺貞 – Pussy (Taiwan, 2007)
2 – 1 Hammock – Birds Flying In Sequence (US, 2005)
3 – 1 Ulrich Schnauss – … Passing By (Germany, 2001)
4 – 1 Eels – From Which I Came/A Magic World (US, 2005)
5 – 1 Sparklehorse – It’s A Wonderful Life (US, 2001)

Eels 的聲音有時尚牛仔的味道(不要問我這是什麼,亂蹦出來的)套句 ilheng 說的:「每首歌都短短的,非常好;最近聽太多長長的後搖了,需要換新氣象!」

最近沒有強檔團,所以跟上禮拜完全是兩匹人馬。新年好像沒有除舊佈新。

076 Comforting Sounds
2007 02 05

1 – 1 Mew – Comforting Sounds (Denmark, 2003)
2 – 1 The Appleseed Cast – Steps And Numbers (US, 2001)
3 – 1 草莓救星 – 羽毛河 (Taiwan)
4 – 1 Mew – She Came Home For Christmas (Denmark, 2003)
5 R 2 Epic45 – River Traffic (UK, 2004)

喜歡「Mew」的「Comforting Sounds」這首歌是「全套式」的一見鍾情。從單曲封面、音樂錄影帶、歌詞、曲風等。全曲長達八分鐘,前半段 Vocal 幽幽的男高音很有北歐的氣息;我很喜歡「I don’t feel alright﹍」、「Why don’t we share our SOLITUDE?」跟「I’d just sit here listening to the drums.」這幾段片語單字。後半段的節奏底則讓聯想到「Embrace」的「Gravity」。

「草莓救星」的未發行歌曲「羽毛河」好好聽,去聽現場表演時,我不太喜歡聽大量的新歌,因為對歌的記憶拍節共鳴性,通常不夠大,但這首歌卻有神奇的魔力,副歌的合唱在隔天一直在腦海迴盪(然而當下想不起這段旋律,從哪遇見)想了一陣回家後,才在草莓救星網上的試聽找到確認這首歌(其實也聽過兩次這首歌的現場了),真希望說著即將發行的單曲會收。

蘋果核陣「The Appleseed Cast」一直來不及聽喜歡,他們在台灣的表演就過去了,只能說可惜沒有緣份。但「Steps And Numbers」卻一曲孤獨的留下深刻的印象。
