On This Highway Called Life



日常生活最無趣卻也必要的一環,「工作」應當之無愧。對吾輩而言,唯一能稍解這千愁萬緒的步數,大致就是音樂了。日也聽、暝也聽,上班當然要抓準時機,怒聽千遍也不厭倦。不管是走路、搭車,或是騎車都好,通勤路上是最容易接近音樂的時刻。而在高速公路的車程,若能來首〈Bellbottoms〉當個《Baby Driver》的模仿犯,或是稍踩多點油門,好似自己是Highway Star,更是一大快事。

因此這次的Mixtape,一樣邀來Groove Locked主筆、Deep One Perfect Morning主力寫手Fuse,我們選了一些自以為適合在公路上奔跑的音樂。曲風以龐克、hardcore、hard rock、金屬等歌曲領軍,佐以lo-fi、noise、britpop、indie pop,偶爾點綴些慢版歌曲,讓中二之外,還是有一丁點人文浪漫好藝術的氣息呢。

2017: A Space Odyssey


身為曾經的音樂宅,總想在某些時刻加點配樂,試圖豐富平淡的日常。這本是件浪漫事,但當擁有一位音樂才子當朋友時卻變成困擾了──你他媽甚麼時候都要配樂是怎樣。於是就在Groove Locked主筆、Deep One Perfect Morning主力寫手Fuse的威脅逼迫之下,我們私下製作了幾捲混音帶:

《Biking Rock》:騎腳踏車時使用。第一首Queen的〈Bicycle Race〉一出,只能無言以對猛踩踏板。

《Ultimate Outdoor Mix》:登山專用。登頂時來首〈站在高崗上〉或〈山頂黑狗兄〉,快活無比。而踩到爛泥的時候,順勢跟著草東怒吼:「殺了它~順便殺了我~拜託你了」,也是種無聊當有趣的概念。

這回(也是敝blog久違的)的Mixtape主題是「2017: A Space Odyssey」。雖說「太空旅行」與生活是八竿子打不著邊,但有句話說「想像力是你的超能力」,既然困於現代生活的框架中,用想像來自我解嘲似乎是唯一的出路。

以我淺薄的想像,太空旅行大概會是:星船加速起飛的速度感、探索異星的神秘、無邊無際的寂寥與空間感、不知打哪來的異形莫名其妙總要穿你腸破我肚等。照著這些特性來看,從老迷幻、新迷幻、噪音、實驗著手應是最佳解,再由達人Fuse引入Shoegaze、Ambient、西德最新科技Krautrock等元素,Mixtape就這樣蹦出來了。那麼,口說無憑、心想也無益,不如交給耳朵去探索吧。

小島上的火山

〈Volcanoes〉此歌從惡魔的廣播留言發想,其末日景象與樂器的運用搭配得恰到好處,特別是過門段裡吉他與「don't breathe」警言所堆出的情緒更是動人,堪稱獨角獸Nick Diamonds在小島上最優秀的一曲。

工作感情家庭社會等生活大小事總不如人遂意,恰似末日預言永無止盡。只是火山還沒爆發、冰河亦未襲來,也許深呼吸一口兩口三口,重新睜開眼睛又沒那麼糟了。不想那麼積極,轉過身來句幹拎娘也是舒爽的選項。
