Sonicbrat --《Stranger To My Room

Cover Art "The Island Room" © Aiwei Foo

 

還記得最早發現 Sonicbrat Darren Ng 的音樂代號)的音樂是 07 年時,那次拜訪新加坡一家著名概念店 Asylum ,店內正播放它們自家音樂廠牌 Asylum Soundlab 的第一張發行,即是這位當地創作人的作品《 HI.A.TUS 》。一首首精巧別緻的 IDM 樂曲、極微主義鋼琴與環境聲響,加上那令人印象深刻的白色立體紙雕包裝設計,《 HI.A.TUS 》可說是那次新加坡行的最大收穫。只可惜該廠牌後來似乎靜止下來,不過 Sonicbrat 卻繼續為新加坡許多劇場、電影、現代舞蹈等配樂,作品深受好評,不但被 Straits Times Life! Theatre Awards 提名十四次之多,更獲得多次最佳聲音設計獎。他持續在網上發表個人作品的同時,也受邀參加歐洲多個國際大型音樂節,包括 Zomerparkfeest Wiener Festwochen ,還有巴塞隆納的電子音樂盛會 Sonar 等。去年他榮獲國家藝術理事會頒發年輕藝術家獎,以表揚他在音樂上的貢獻。得知他剛剛在新加坡廠牌 Kitchen.Label 推出新專輯《 Stranger To My Room 》,感覺再自然跟合適不過了。

 

Stranger To My Room 》收錄 Sonicbrat 十一首作品,大部分是鋼琴獨奏,有時候配上弦樂與環境聲響,全部在他獨居八年的家中錄製, Sonicbrat 透過他的極微琴音與寂靜對話,探索人與時間、空間與自身既熟悉又陌生的關係,也表達他對「家」的感情與觀察,從一開頭深夜的即興鋼琴營造晝伏夜出的遐想,到弦樂的加入表達晨光照耀時間變化,值得注意的是那些似有還無的環境聲響產生的豐富空間感(呼應專輯主題),跟他獨特的錄音手法脫不了關係,也讓專輯整體欲呈現的私密感與纖細感更加突出,房間內最微細的塵埃磨擦聲跟鋼琴樂聲有著同等意義,表達著 Sonicbrat 對家最深沉的情感。(nosna

Amiina - The Lighthouse Project

http://www.anost.net/Musik/Vinyl/EP/Amiina-The-Lighthouse-Project.html

 

跟很多朋友一樣,最早注意到Amiina全因冰島天團Sigur Ros,那時候她們擔任Sigur Ros Takk 世界巡迴演唱會的弦樂組兼暖場嘉賓,許多人從此注意到這四位冰島女孩。由SólrúnMaríaEddaHildur四位雷克雅維克音樂學院學生組成的Amiina,自2004年成立以來就創作不斷,不要以為她們只是規規矩矩的弦樂四重奏,只要聆聽她們幾張專輯會發現,不管是《AnimaminA》、《Seoul》、《Kurr》再到《Puzzle》(加入鼓手Magnús Trygvason Eliassen與電音樂手Kippi Kaninus),音樂往往傳遞出許多 “弦外之音”,那些奇怪聲響總是令人好奇,她們會到處挖掘不同物件的發聲潛能,然後讓它們成為樂器,從大中小提琴、鋸琴、電腦音效、音樂盒、水杯到各種無以名狀的 “打擊樂器”,難得的是這幾位年輕女生對自己音樂有很清晰的想法,再多樂器也只是為了達到她們平淡雋永的音樂仙境而已。

 除了運用各種奇怪樂器,她們的演出空間也往往令人意想不到,四年前她們在家鄉冰島展開一次獨特的音樂巡迴演出,表演場地都是一些奇怪的小空間,當中還包括在燈塔內表演,她們後來為這次演出寫了一些新的曲子,後來再到錄音室把這些曲子以live方式錄製完成,最後呈現出這張給人特別親密感覺的電子原音、新古典專輯《The Lighthouse Project》,裡面歌曲混雜著新與舊,如小夜曲般的簡單編排,令人驚喜的是她們竟然翻唱美國迷幻鄉村歌手Lee Hazlewood作品"Leather and Lace",原來早在2007年他逝世前一星期,彼此曾合作過一首歌曲。喜歡冰島音樂的朋友,Amiina是你不容錯過的一道美麗風景。(nosna)

Moshimoss - Endless Endings

http://www.nothings66.com/releases/n66cd004/
http://kosukeanamizu.com/endlessendings/

ametsub後,日本微電音廠牌nothings66這回推出另一日本電音創作人moshimoss (aka Kosuke Anamizu)新作Endless Endings》,目前定居山梨縣的moshimoss2010年由美國廠牌dynamophone推出首張專輯後,引起樂迷樂評注意,作風低調的他默默累積自己的樂迷,“Slow Days It Was Super”一曲竟然在Youtube創下超過五十萬的點擊率。

2012KosukeFuji Rock音樂節的演出已預告這張新專輯的到來,以吉他與鍵盤作主要樂器,多樣的音景變化卻無損令人珍視的淡淡抒情,環境錄音與人聲採樣的巧妙利用讓音樂把人帶進夢幻又懷舊的音樂小宇宙,他特別邀請冰島樂隊Rökkurró女歌手”Lily and Fox”友情獻聲,Kosuke多年來對minimaldub音樂的鑽研,可反映在他對每首曲子不同於一般電音或環境音樂的散焦音景營造,每次聆聽都有柳暗花明又一村的奇妙感受。值得一提的是,專輯特別找來近期人氣急升的德國鋼琴家Nil Frahm幫忙mastering

JIAOLONG / DAPHNI



While Caribou has been touring the globe throughout 2012 in support of Radiohead, Dan Snaith has fallen deeper into his love affair with the dance floor to bring us a full-length release as Daphni. The first Daphni album of shape-shifting works is titled JIAOLONG (pronounced JOW-long) and will be released on Dan's own imprint in the UK on October 8 and on Merge Records in North America on October 16.

Throughout Caribou's ongoing world tour, Dan has been hitting club nights in each city, DJing into the wee hours in search of that sweet spot.
DJs have the potential to blindside you, Snaith says. Inspired to work in a completely different way—setting aside the meticulous compositional rigors and musical layers that underpin Caribou songs—Dan Snaith-as-Daphni reaches out for a more feminine, fluid energy and seeks instant gratification. Daphni tracks are rough and spontaneous, he explains. "There is a small world where dance music lives up to its potential to liberate, surprise, and innovate. It's there that I hope Daphni has a place.

STRANGE PLEASURES / STILL CORNERS



Greg Hughes, the driving force behind London's Still Corners, is not one to rest on his laurels. Despite the critical plaudits hurled at the band's 2010 debut Creatures of an Hour (indulgently seductive opined NME; an astounding debut purred Drowned in Sound), Hughes is blessed with the kind of inexorable ardor for refreshing and sharpening his muse that is common to expert sculptors of elegant pop music. I'll never be satisfied with any of it, I need to keep trying new things, he concedes. Still Corners is The Enterprise, for me. 

Riding that insatiable kinesis over the last two years has resulted in Hughes, along with singing accomplice Tessa Murray, fashioning Strange Pleasures, a devastating sophomore album which is destined to usher Still Corners to a deserved place at dream-pop's high table. The album was captured in Hughes' Greenwich studio, with the protean multi-tasker handling all the instruments and penning most of the lyrics. Where its predecessor soared on sugared layers of shoegazing-infused retro-futurism, Strange Pleasures proffers a leaner, more acute extrapolation of 80s-suffused song and studio craft, navigating a sinuous trajectory between velveteen Angelo Badalamenti noir-pop torch song sophistication, ethereal Cocteau Twins beauty and the glacial, mellifluous territory mapped by Modern English, The Cure and The Passions.

For Hughes, an Austin native whose plans to move to Brooklyn were sidetracked when he fell in love London's worldly charms, the new album is more than just a stylistic progression from Creatures of an Hour. Musically, Creatures… was soft and relaxing but it was a massively cathartic record for me. I was destroyed after being in a relationship; it's all in there, suicide… all that stuff. I needed to calm my soul and Creatures… did that for me. Strange Pleasures is more of an adventure out toward the open seas. It's an exploring type of record: strange new lands, strange new love…

DEERHUNTER / MONOMANIA



After a brief hiatus following the success of third album Halcyon Digest, during which time Bradford Cox and Lockett Pundt released their own albums as Atlas Sound and Lotus Plaza respectively, a new Deerhunter line-up (with additions of bassist Josh Mckay and guitarist Frankie Broyles) reconvened in January 2013 at Rare Book Studio in Brooklyn, New York. Produced by Nicholas Vernhes and Bradford Cox and recorded in the dead of night, Deerhunter’s new longplayer Monomania will be released on 7th May. Monomania finds the group recalling its scrappy punk aesthetic; a perfect nocturnal garage rock album full of the layered and hazy vintage guitar sounds that define them.

SILVER WILKINSON/BIBIO



Silver Wilkinson and Bibio in general is less about genre spotting and more about the vibe, which is a corny way of saying listen to the goddamn tunes. That blurry mix of acoustic folk melodies and vaporous, analog synth work is still the trademark here, dreamy opener The First Daffodils as obvious an opening statement as you'll see Bibio make. It's a little bit Simon & Garfunkel and a little bit Boards of Canada, that eclecticism apparent in his influences and the song structures. Less a "structure," really, and more a scuffed over path that meanders about on tendrils of glitchy keyboards and pastoral guitar, usually before returning to the sparse ambient beauty at the heart of all his work. There's hints of the hip-hop lover in the choppy, thrusting You and its on the money Commodores sample; of the pop culture curator on single A Tout a L'Heure, where retro synths rustle up against a psych-folk acoustic melody; of the experimentalist, on the shape-shifting Look At Orion!, which harkens back to Bibio's earlier work before unleashing a far murkier electro beast. Even Business Park, the black sheep of the bunch, turns an 80s horror movie theme into something almost comforting by the end of its herky-jerky loops.

Eluvium - Nightmare Ending

Nightmare Ending is the first proper Eluvium album released since 2010's Similes, the unexpectedly vocal-heavy ambient-pop record that simultaneously delighted and confounded longtime fans. But the Nightmare Ending story actually began years earlier, as it was intended to be the follow-up to the watershed album, Copia. Conceived as a way of helping loosen his self imposed ideals of perfection, Cooper labeled each Nightmare Ending track as either a "dream," or an "imperfection" a way of differentiating the philosophical concept of "dream vs. reality."

Rodriguez - Searching For Sugar Man


英國專業搖滾雜誌好評一致推薦 ★★★★★, Q Magazine、★★★★, Mojo

 

2012最受好評的音樂紀錄片,底特律民謠詩人Rodriguez的傳奇音樂之旅

★專業影評Rotten Tomatoes 超高評95%滿意度推薦

★電影原聲帶收錄Rodriguez2張個人專輯歌曲,14首來自城市邊緣的真摯歌聲

★發行傳奇歌手絕版黑膠唱片美國酷廠Light In The AtticSony Music首發經典


 Searching for Sugar Man】是敘述70年代美國底特律音樂傳奇Rodriguez如何以一張銷售奇慘的專輯成為南非種族隔離期間人民的心靈寄託的奇妙故事。

 時間拉回1960年代末,底特律著名音樂製作人Dennis CoffeyMike Theodore在底特律的小酒吧發現Rodriguez這個會用巴布狄倫方式創作的天才歌手。

 兩人馬上跟他簽約,1970年首張專輯【Cold Fact】一推出銷售卻出奇的冷颼颼(難道專輯叫Hot Fact就會大賣嗎?)Rodriguez的音樂常有代表貧民窟階級的抗議口吻,雖合乎70年代的政治正確的主流價值,但專輯製作方向與Rodriguez的少數族裔血統,加上民謠、搖滾、放克、迷幻等元素融合出的太過奇異編曲,反而讓他注定成為搖滾名利場的失敗者。

 Rodriguez發行第2張專輯後,就此消失於音樂圈。有傳言他因壓力過大,在一場演唱會之後用自焚的方式一燒畢命。或許這也是某種都會傳說,對後來尋尋覓覓的黑膠收藏者而言,這類荒誕不經的謠言增添了些許神秘感與樂趣。直到80年代【Cold Fact】竟也飄洋過海來到種族隔離的南非,成為南非青年反抗政府的背景音樂,【Cold Fact】成為破白金的暢銷專輯,而Rodriguez變成家喻戶曉的搖滾巨星。

 這張原汁原味的原聲帶大碟收錄Rodriguez2張個人專輯歌曲,14首來自城市邊緣的真摯歌聲,現在聽來更是動聽無比。專發傳奇歌手絕版黑膠唱片美國酷廠Light In The Attic首次於美國重新發行Rodriguez的首張專輯之後,獲得樂評一致推崇,認為他的音樂The Doors, Love 以及Jimi Hendrix.這些搖滾傳奇的民謠版本。來自70年代的Rodriguez絕對是2012最佳重發音樂寶藏,值得愛樂者細細品味。

El Fog -- Reverberate Slowly

試聽:http://www.flau.jp/releases/30.html

 

title: Reverberate Slowly

artist: El Fog

cat#: FLAU30

 

Reverberate Slowly’ is a smoky collection of gorgeous late-night dub miniatures from mysterious Berlin-based producer El Fog. Sounding at times like a less academic Jan Jelinek or a hopelessly innocent Rhythm and Sound; deceptively complex click, hiss and pop rhythms are used to underpin a series of minimal elements (rhodes and vibraphone tones, sleepy acoustic guitar, samples of piano and double bass) that slowly resonate through each track, quietly pulsing and reverberating as suggested by the album’s evocative title. Opening track ‘Mountain Dub’ sets the tone, and as a simple keyboard phrase is repeated over vinyl crackles and low throbs you are drawn effortly into the murky vapour. This is further explored with ‘Silent Soaring’ and ‘El Cloud’ which both consolidate the misty mood, building a complex mesh of rhythms from soft clicks and pops while never descending into mindless digital manipulation. It is this human aspect that gives ‘Reverberate Slowly’ its beating heart, and makes it such an appropriate release on the fast-growing the label. Unlike so many albums in the genre it has a fragile personality and many layers to uncover on each subsequent listen. ‘Reverberate Slowly’ is a totally seductive listening experience and like a candlelit supper with that special someone, it won’t fail to draw you into its moonlit night-time mood.

 

Album originally released our favorite label moteer, 2007. This Edition is re-mastering version with 2 rare track and bonus remix from Jan Jelinek.

Henning Schmiedt -Schnee

試聽:http://www.flau.jp/releases/32_jp.html

 title: Schnee

artist: Henning Schmiedt

cat#: FLAU32

 聆聽德國鋼琴家漢寧.施密特(Henning Schmiedt)的《Klavierraum(鋼琴室),頗有驚喜。這是07年他特別獻給懷孕妻子的獨奏專輯,十五首曲子全部由施密特創作演奏,那融合當代爵士與室內樂,晶瑩剔透的琴音,加上細緻環境音效,營造出一個優雅寫意、乾淨無垢的流動聲響空間。在含蓄低調的氛圍下,施密特不時以他精湛全面的琴藝,巧妙創造出不同的聽覺 “亮點”,層次豐富、意境深遠,輕重緩急間讓人忍不住一直跟隨他的樂音前進、迴盪、沈澱。施密特表面上跟GoldmundMax RichterOlafur ArnaldsPeter Broderick或小瀬村晶等一眾後古典音樂人類似,但細聽後實有著截然不同的音樂追求。

 這位1965年生於前東德的鋼琴高手,早年在羅斯托克(Rostock)接受完整古典音樂訓練,後來接觸爵士樂與世界音樂產生強烈興趣,並形成獨特的樂風,深厚的音樂底蘊與開放視野讓他有機會參與五花八門計劃,從獨奏、爵士樂組合到大型交響樂團,曾經合作的音樂人包括Mikis TheodorakisMaria FarantaouriJocelyn B. SmithZulfu LivaneliWu WeiLauren NewtonAl di Meola等,此外,他也創作大量配樂,包括Kurt Weill電影配樂;卡夫卡「變形記」劇場音樂;還有把馬勒的《悼亡兒之歌》(Songs on the Death of Children)重新改編等等。《Schnee》是他第四張個人獨奏專輯(nosna

Serph - el esperanka


http://www.myspace.com/serphinjapan 

 

東京電音鬼才Serph第四張個人專輯 "el esperanka" 。巧妙混合爵士、breakbeatstechno、電影配樂與前衛搖滾,貫穿Serph音樂真正誘人的是他的旋律,以音樂述說一段段扣人心弦的夢幻電音童話。

 

Beyond utopia. Two years since introducing the world to his utopia of sound in his previous album, “Heartstrings”; Serph, the wizard of electronic music has finally completed his new album, one that paints the scenery beyond utopia, a new horizon discovered at the end of daily musical experimentation.

 

Serph is a unique artist who suddenly appeared onto the music scene, wrapped in a veil of mystery never appearing in live performances. His past two albums recorded phenomenal sales, suddenly making him the darling of electronic music. Despite this success, his creative juices have kept on flowing as proven through his new project Reliq which focuses exclusively on edgier dance music along with the simultaneous release of the Serph Christmas mini album. The new album, “el esperanka” is Serph’s fourth album, the first album in two years since announcing his third album “Heartstrings” in spring 2011.

 

A spectrum of musical elements including jazz, techno, classical, film music, and progressive rock are incorporated together to create beautiful melody and harmony; unfolding organically one after the other in a single track. This original style which has become Serph’s signature style shines brighter in this album, bringing greater depth and fantasy to his dreamy fairytale world. The result is an ever-free, bright and positive album which gives audiences a small peek into yet another side of Serph’ untypical world waiting to be discovered.

 The album title, “el esperanka” is a term coined from “esperanca”, Spanish for “hope.” This is Serph’s story of “new hope” beyond utopia. Album “el esperanka” is a soundtrack that stirs imaginations, an album dedicated to the dreamers in this world.

F.s.blumm & Nils Frahm - Music for lovers music versus time / Music for wobbling music versus gravity

http://sonicpieces.com/sonicpieces016-2.html

 

SONIC PIECES 008 / 016 ' 2nd edition 2CD "embossed cardboard packaging"

 

A duo can be the most magical of things, and it seems like the meeting of minds between Morr Music veteran F.S.Blumm and contemporary classical darling Nils Frahm was a match made in heaven. The ease in which they perform together is the first noticeable thing on 'Music for wobbling Music versus gravity' – there is a discernable weightlessness to their sound as they circle around each other, moving and meeting, touching with their musical fingertips. This is lighthearted music, certainly, but Frahm's effortless melancholy pulls it back to the real world before there is any danger of things getting twee.

 

The album is a selection of overdubbed and edited improvisations, and every sound was recorded with microphones giving an indescribable air to the music that is a product of the space in the room. Breaths, fingers on keys and strings, chairs and feet – everything can be heard plainly and this becomes a defining part of the compositions themselves. It almost becomes an experience akin to listening to an aging folk recording, but instead of a group of locals, this is merely two friends creating their own homespun instrumentals. The perfect record for the winter months, 'Music for wobbling Music versus gravity' is a generous gift from two of Germany's most hard working talents, and it is guaranteed to warm even the coldest of hearts.

Lubomyr Melnyk - Corollaries

Tracklist :

01 Pockets Of Light

02 The Six Day Moment

03 A Warmer Place

04 Nightrail From The Sun

05 Le Miroir D'Amour

要不是 Erased Tapes 這家挖掘 Nils Frahm Olafur Arnalds 等鋼琴家的廠牌推出 Lubomyr Melnyk 全新作品《 Corollaries 》,我還不知道烏克蘭有這麼一位厲害的鋼琴怪傑,可說是千里馬遇伯樂的又一成功案例。

 但如果你以為 Melnyk 是新主晉樂手就誤會大了,這位目前定居加拿大的大鬍子先生,早在七0年化初期深受美國低限音樂美學影響,加上正規古典音樂嚴格訓練,逐漸發展出個人獨特的綿延式音樂串流風格( Continuous Music ),在他有限的公開演出紀錄更充分証明他驚人的彈奏速度(曾創下一小時彈奏 93,650 個獨立音符紀錄),Melnyk 是一位真正的音樂創作者,他從不墨守成規,總是想方設法在當代音樂既定脈絡開拓新方向,從綿延式音樂美學中思考新的作曲可能,對他而言,鋼琴的真實聲響與和聲旋律有著同等重要性。他運用獨創性的演奏技巧,快速和複雜的音符組合,從而將原來的曲式變型,產生微妙的泛音效果,再轉化成新的旋律,說起來很難懂,一聽自然就心領神會了。不過這次新專輯他做了一點點折衷,既維持他獨創的綿延式彈奏,卻也適當加插彷如 Nils Frahm 的詩意風格,的確,Nils Frahm 與吉他手 Martyn Heyne 特別參與這張專輯,而錄音與製作大任則交由同門 Peter Broderick 負責,封面則是曾為 Bon Iver 同名專輯繪畫的美國當代藝術家 Gregory Euclide 操刀,又如果你對他自成一派的 Continuous Music 很感興趣,建議大家最好找一下他早期的專輯會比較清楚。(nosna

Yo La Tengo - - Fade


只要世界沒有毀滅,他們會一直站在那裡。

美國獨立搖滾天團  睽違四年浪漫回歸

芝加哥搖滾大佬John McEntireTortoise)坐鎮主理

 做一件自己擅長的事,持續做了三十年是什麼感覺?是否會感到厭倦或遭遇瓶頸?紐澤西獨立搖滾活傳奇Yo La Tengo以第十三張專輯的第一首歌〈Ohm〉,開宗明義唱出他們長青不老的訣竅:「We try not to lose our hearts. Not to lose our minds.

勿忘初衷,永保赤子之心。

 Sonic Youth休團後,Yo La Tengo成了美國獨立樂界從80年代活躍至今,唯一不曾經歷解散風波的元老。吉他手Ira、鼓手Georgia與貝斯手James也從二十多歲的青澀年紀,並肩走到五十好幾的人生階段。玩樂團既然是一生最愛,便以決心和才華,及全部的時間來實踐它。《Fade》是過去十年最溫暖動情的Yo La Tengo作品,反應了他們反璞歸真的豁達態度。

 從《Painful》之後合作了二十年,可稱為第四名團員的製作人Roger Moutenot暫時缺席,由後搖滾名團Tortoise的核心人物John McEntire承接這個角色。他未削弱Yo La Tengo的性格,而是替原已熟成的音樂,提煉出更私密的個人氣息。Ira獨步江湖的嘶吼式電吉他這回退居幕後,編曲以木吉他、弦樂與銅管為主,皆是音質溫潤的樂器,配上夫妻檔的和聲,整張專輯極易入耳。Ira主唱的優雅小品〈Is That Enough〉,或是Georgia主唱的長篇結尾曲〈Before We Run〉,都會讓樂迷在心中共鳴:「這就是我們記憶中的Yo La Tengo!」

Nils Frahm - Screws

 
在歐洲的當代音樂領域裡,德國鋼琴家Nils Frahm和他的同期Ólafur ArnaldsPeter BroderickANNE MüLLER等人合作密切;他們很快就倍受矚目。不像傳統學院派那麼嚴肅拘謹,這些年輕的作曲家大膽嘗試各種樂器及錄音方式,吸引了一群新樂迷。

 憑著對音色的敏銳掌握,Nils在柏林成立了自已的錄音室,除了錄製他自已的專輯,也為Peter BroderickEfterklang等人錄音。在他的兩張專輯作品The Bells2009)和Felt2011)裡面,可以感受到Nils熱切探索錄音方式的心,他運用空間及麥克風,還有一張毛毯,在兩張專輯裡呈現截然不同的琴音。

然而一場意外,讓他的左手姆指嚴重受傷,經過四次徒勞無功的手術,還是只能透過復健慢慢恢復。這段只有九根健康手指的日子裡,錄製了這張迷你專輯,並在他
30歲的生日發表。九首曲子的標題簡潔而富有詩意,在YouMe之間,只有鋼琴白鍵的唱名:Do, Re, Mi, Fa, Sol, La, Si。跳脫自怨自艾,擁抱自已對鋼琴的熱情;而這張只用九隻手指頭錄製完成的作品,也是他要給樂迷的禮物。

專輯的長度只有三十分鐘,
Nils Frahm最迷人的內觀、沈思的鋼琴音色,在這些獨白式的小品中,更顯得質地醇厚。
