去年的年終榜。放半年再拿出來好像變成每年的常態了。想不到一晃眼,做個人榜單也邁入第十個年頭,歲月真的是不等人的玩意。近幾年 Facebook 當道,要維持 blog 的運作也真是不容易的事。以下依舊是排排前幾名的自嗨傳統,順便留下一些文字心得感想,為自己的過去一年聽覺體驗,做下紀錄。

Charity Cover Compilation - Just Like Honey

1. Charity Cover Compilation – Just Like Honey (UK, 2012)

這是一張向一首歌致敬的慈善專輯,一首歌來自1985年,The Jesus And Mary Chain / Just Like Honey 全部11首都是同一首歌,但全部聽起來風格異趣,誠意十足 , 迷戀一首歌有什麼方式比這樣做來的更好更瘋狂?

推薦曲:整張分曲試聽
10. Just Like Honey
04. Just Like Honey
09. Just Like Honey
01. Just Like Honey
02. Just Like Honey
11. Just Like Honey

Honeyslide EP

2. Honeyslide – Honeyslide (UK, 2012)

五首歌,25分鐘簡短的EP,在2012年的數位時代,還在做發行錄音帶的事(最近越來越多小團這麼做來表現得特別也算一種小眾顯學?)在網路上聽到試聽馬上命中紅心的感覺,絕對是僅有的。 Sickly 這首歌絕對是我的年度金曲, 綿綿密密、慢速氛圍營造,一片嘈雜聲中悠悠的倒出聲音, 我想如果我聽到現場一定會起雞皮疙瘩的。

推薦曲:整張分曲試聽
4. Sickly
2. Drippin
1. Made For You

Coexist

3. The xx – coexist (UK, 2012)

全年聽最多的一張專輯, 但比起上一張太優秀太工整,這張還是覺得少了什麼期待,也許我太喜歡 jamie 的電音,所以好幾首我都希望聽到更深沈、更長段的間奏吧。譬如:Sunset 2:04~2:29 這段就好像要發揮了什麼,可是又什麼都沒有。但還是很漂亮的一張專輯,今年八月來了野台開唱,度過了醉人的一晚。越聽越有味道,林貓王說得很對,一開始聽起來很像作不足的 B-Side,覺得失落,但還是很有標記性,一男一女的對話,內斂、簡約、清空,喜歡的感覺會持續蔓延成全數買單 。

推薦曲:
4. Try
2. Chained (MV)
7. Missing
6. Sunset
9. Unfold

公路白

4. Selfkill – 公路白 (Taiwan, 2012)

喜歡selfkill這張的封面創作和美術設計,尤其是封面那個大肚楠太心有戚戚焉惹(淚)。整體來說我覺得有比上一張還耐聽還進步,這張加入了管樂一開始覺得有點太做作,但有一陣子我好喜歡曲3「公路白」那扭來扭去的管樂音,串聯到曲8「時間不停」這首3:48秒「馴服」了管樂的狀態,聽起來非常舒服。

推薦曲:
2. 你往何處去?(MV)
3. 公路白 (MV)
8. 時間不停 (MV)

5. Pacific UV – Longplay 2 (USA, 2008)

不知道為什麼2008年那沒聽進去這張專輯(明明那時候很著迷後搖滾的,也聽聞過這張專輯)。 這是一張很美的專輯,在家裡聽都覺得腳步輕柔優雅了起來。Tremolo、If So 是裡面非常喜歡的歌。

推薦曲:
3. Tremolo
7. If So
8. Ljiv

Valtari

6. Sigur Ros – Valtari (Iceland, 2012)

新專輯有時覺得太靜太 ambient 過頭, 但細細聽還是非常雋永,「急凍的本領」、「晶瑩剔透的悲傷」氛圍,仍動聽萬分 (可惜如果把這張專輯變成現場表演還是稍嫌會冷場) 這張專輯也搭配發佈了一系列 MV, 每一支都「意識流」或「超現實」或「慢拍」的不得了, 裡面最喜歡 Fjögur píano ,請來變形金剛男主角露三點還有奇怪體位的演出是最大噱頭,簡單的鋼琴音符一聲聲與畫面配合得恰到好處, 讓我餘音繞梁,對影像畫面魂牽夢縈回味再三。

推薦曲:
8. Fjögur píanó (MV)
6. Varðeldur
4. Rembihnútur (MV)
2. Ekki múkk (MV)

Future This

7. The Big Pink – Future This (UK, 2012)

曲式非常有氣勢,實際上也很 catchy 順耳。今年來的野台表演 tone 調跟想像的不一樣,有點小失望。但專輯聽進去的金曲真的很無懈可擊。

推薦曲:
2. Hit The Ground (Superman) (MV)
1. Stay Gold (MV)
10. 77

Bloom

8. Beach House – Bloom (USA, 2012)

主唱 Victoria 的高辨識性+獨特的類喪禮氛圍樂(?)。可惜 MV 都拍的很難懂,而且搞得很高成本大製作,更讓人摸不著頭緒有種錢白花的感覺(MV 錢又不是你出的)。

推薦曲:
10. Irene
3. Lazuli (MV)
2. Wild
5. The hours

Red

9. Taylor Swift – Red (USA, 2012)

發行這張專輯的那陣子 Taylor Swift 幾乎綁架了整個下載單曲榜前幾名,一開始是含羞待放的美麗火紅封面吸引我的目光,下載來聽真是媽媽咪呀不得了,好多歌馬上 A+++++,尤其 State Of Grace 這首歌對極了(單曲封面插圖也好正點) ,聽得內心的小鼓百花齊放

推薦曲:
3. Treacherous
1. State Of Grace
12. Sad Beautiful Tragic
10. The Last Time (Feat. Gary Lightbody Of Snow Patrol)
16. Begin Again (MV)
14. Everything Has Changed (Feat. Ed Sheeran) (MV)

Born and Raised

10. John Mayer – Born and Raised (USA, 2012)

高中時期聽到現在,Mayer 也漸漸要邁入大叔的年紀了,是一張保守會拿獎的專輯,很適合想聽點 pop+country 的時候聽。

推薦曲:
8. Love Is a Verb
6. Born and Raised
3. Shadow Days (MV)
1. Queen of California (MV)

Take My Breath Away

11. Gui Boratto – Take My Breath Away (Barzil, 2009)

很正點但不會過分嘈雜流俗的電音(原以為是歐陸派流的,但居然是巴西出品)。這個團對我來說像是補去年 Dye 這張專輯的聲音頻率位置。

推薦曲:
5. No Turning Back
1. Take My Breath Away

When We Talk EP

12. Inspirative – When We Talk EP (Thailand, 2012)

之前一直不能理解泰國怎麼可以出這種冷冽的後搖滾樂風,但這張讓人嗅出一點悠閒、溫暖的熱帶人氣息,以低調不特意討好的姿態,多了一些街頭錄製的現場雜音,但卻聽來又夢幻的氛圍,很有趣的一張小 EP。

推薦曲:
2. An Evening With Us
1. Key On A Train
3. Good Morning Uncle

The Drums

13. The Drums – The Drums (USA, 2010)

主唱漫不經心、吊兒郎當,三八,一整個相見恨晚 (有人說是 the smiths + the cure + joy division?) 舉例來說 Me And The Moon 這首,歌曲的情境是被愛人嫌棄、離我遠點,我現在不愛你,但還硬要跟愛人說:告訴輪家要怎麼樣,怎麼辦辦辦嘛(歌詞翻成中文大概會這樣唱的程度,原詞是:So tell me what to do do do do dodododo do do,搭配主唱的唱法就會得到這個情境了。)

推薦曲:
2. Me And The Moon (MV)
9. We Tried
1. Best Friend (MV)
4. Book Of Stories

Automatic Movements

14. Everything is made in China – Automatic Movements (Russia, 2009)

令人摸不著邊的團名,來自俄羅斯。戀人非常的喜歡(如果了解我們彼此,這張應該比較像是我會喜歡的東西,但實際上這張我還是不錯喜歡就是)。

推薦曲:
10. Wade In
3. Blindfold
8. Automatic
