     Full Discography:
    TBR Forum

    THE BOXER REBELLION formed in 2001, through a chance meeting at London's 12 Bar Club. Despite an illness flooring one of their members and forcing them to cancel tours with Razorlight and The Killers, the band pushed forward to release their debut album 'Exits' in 2005 with significant press acclaim. Further interest from abroad saw the band playing shows in the latter half of 2005 in France, Italy and Japan with the likes of The Walkmen, before heading back to the UK to consolidate ideas for a second full-length release. The Boxer Rebellion stand for longevity and substance, and they have both of these qualities in droves. Where other bands would have crumbled following the woes that have befallen this London four-piece, The Boxer Rebellion have re-grouped and re-discovered what makes them tick. Recent, packed live performances in London show that TBR have amassed a solid fanbase, and with superb new songs, the world is again their oyster.

    London-based British band comprising Nathan Nicholson, Todd Howe, Adam Harrison and Piers Hewitt, delivering a mixture of rawkus bass-heavy grooves, alternately fragile and explosive vocals, and melodic indie/alternative sounds. So far the band have released “The Boxer Rebellion” EP (in 2003) and the “Exits” LP (in 2005). A limited edition single “Evacuate/Code Red” was released in 2008. Their new and second album “Union” will be released worldwide on January 11th, 2009, initially exclusively through iTunes, along with a worldwide re-release of “Exits”.

    等了很久,以致于看到新砖Leak的时候很兴奋,比看到甚么PR大牌的新砖兴奋多了...
    The Amber Light不同,The Boxer Rebellion在o5年的Exits中表现得更为猛烈,情绪也好,表现方式也好...颇有几分在战场上幸存之余呐喊的味道...粗糙的质感,喷涌而出直至爆裂的轰鸣,到World Without End的恍若围城...真让人欲罢不能
    新专辑Union虽仍有象Evacuate一样标准TBR风格的曲目,但总体趋向柔和...舍弃了些许"过曝"的处理,多了些节奏变化,加上与生俱来的流畅旋律(很PR= =),让Union相较Exits更为的成熟饱满...很难说两者孰优孰劣,总之我很博爱...
    TBR的风格还是比较难界定,至少我是分不清楚...Psychedelic? Indie? Alternative? Brit-pop? 谁指点一下...
    再回过头看看o8年的Brit-pop...Keane,Travis, Coldplay...呃,你还记得他们的debut长啥样麽?好吧,他们都说自己在改变,在尝试新的风格,至少我是不知道这改变的初衷在哪里,大概是更迎合听众,更面向市场吧...瞧人家Antony and the Johnsons到现在还这副阴阳怪气的唱腔,新砖The Crying Light不也蛮嗲嘛= =...

    and最后还有一堆链接,多是帮朋友传的,懒得一一介绍了,有兴趣的同学可以下下:

     ihopeyousuffer - Armed With Color 

    ihopeyousuffer: "...At last these people grew weary of their senseless labours and suffering appeared on their faces, and these people proclaimed that suffering was beauty, for in suffering alone was there thought. They glorified suffering in their songs. I walked among them, wringing my hands and weaping over them, but I loved them perhaps more than before when there was no sign of suffering in their faces and when they were innocent and -- oh, so beautiful! I loved the earth they had polluted even more than when it had been a paradise, and only because sorrow had made its appearance on it..."

    ihopeyousuffer不出意外的增加了曲目的长度,相比This Is A Collection Of People to Ruin的琐碎,Gold, Oil And Drugs也并没有完全向完整的体系化发展,而仍旧采用片段式的曲目安排...冰冷,很冰冷...
    交流不需要花哨的言语,繁复的结构,只需彼此相互了解对方内心想要表达的意图...
    当所谓的优秀团体都纷纷开始作出相互雷同的优秀专辑,我开始感到一丝厌倦...
    如果所有的团体都向究极体进发而抛弃了他们最初的风格...你会?
    我不希望这个假象会变成一种趋势= =...

    rabbit love carrot - [Music]

    Artist: Nic Bommarito
    Album: Enenenen, en Enenene.
    Country: Providence, Rhode Island, United States
    Release: 2005
    Label: Self-Released
    Style: Post Rock

    Track Listing:

    1. Yksikseskös Yskiskelet? (Are You Coughing Alone?)
    2. Enenenen, en Enenene. (I May Increase, I May Not Increase.)
    3. Riba Ribi Grize Rep. (One Fish Bites Another Fishes Tail.)
    4. Na Vrh Brda Vrba Mrda. (On Top of the Hill a Willow Swings.)
    5. Summergimurne? (Are We Sinking?) 

     Sound/Info: Myspace, Free Download: nicbommarito.com

    About Nic Bommarito:
    Nic Bommarito comes off like the all-American college boy. He's from a small city in the near distance to Detroit, Michigan. He studied philosophy in Ann Harbor and changed to Albuquerque, New Mexico to expand his Sanskrit-studies. This trip took him across 2/3 of the US, but the next relocation was even more thoroughgoing . In 2006, Nic moved to Lhasa in Tibet, roof of the world.
    Nic is the unresting type. Due to his studies, he runs several websites, draws small comic strips, releases philosophical prose and documents his travels via
    a nice photo-blog. What's interesting for you: Nic Bommarito is a talented musician, too. He got in contact with us in late 2006, and we spontaneously decided to release his Taciturn LP at 12rec.  (By 12rec. Records)

    About the album:
    Recorded in the summer of 2005 in the former home of my late grandparents. No samples or keyboards were used in the recording. 'Yksikseskös Yskiskelet?' is the confusion of solitude and loneliness. 'Enenenen, en Enenene.' is excitement dissolving into anxiety. 'Riba Ribi Grize Rep.' is intentionally hurting another. 'Summergimurne?' is the sound of a voice you always want to hear. You can see the tracklist art and liner notes. (By Nic Bommarito Himself)

    我承认大多后摇很阴郁,甚至极度绝望...不过阳光的一面总是那么美好
    还是偏爱比较厚一点的东西,象The Seven Mile Journey这样螺旋上升的就很好...毕竟很不喜欢做升降机的感觉= =...
    现在懒了,3,4首的EP比较适合我= =...Nice Artist, Nice Album...
    If you like this album, you may also prefer the other works by Nic Bommarito... Check his website!

    不知道有没有人在下了之前的Mixtape #oo2之后,用Goolge搜过这个来自韩国的团体...
    o7年,一首Radio Box让我迷上了Daydream,即便当时找不到(主要是韩语看不懂Orz)乐队的资料,也没有Myspace...到如今,有专辑发行,很奇妙的一个过程...
    Vidulgi Ooyoo, Loro's, Daydream...三个韩国团霸占了今年最多的聆听时间...
    无须心存偏见,全情投入其中= =...
    每听一遍"The Land Of April"都可以想象如果在他们的Live现场我会是一个甚么状态...
    能有机会看Live的人很幸运,不管甚么原因,请不要错过...
    ...感谢"你就是它"同学一直以来的帮助...

    Artist: The Bird Ensemble
    Album: The Last Songbook [Ep]
    Country: Nashville, Tennessee, United States
    Release: October 27, 2008
    Label: Self-Released
    Style: Post Rock

    Track Listing:

    1. Mr. Moss

     Sound/Info: Myspace, Review: TSB, Free Download: thelastsongbook.com

    The Bird Ensemble is a Nashville based group dedicated to an American heritage. Influenced highly by the jazz-fusion and minimalist movements of the late 1960s / early ’70s, it also finds its place within the current post-rock movement. The Ensemble intends to bridge a gap between romantic and academic music and is committed to live recordings.

    第二次出现在小博上的The Bird Ensemble...
    很多时候并不需要用最激烈的方式来表达情绪的高峰...爆发不是唯一的途径
    开头总是那么困难,但瓶颈却偏偏在中途不期而至...或许,就这样一蹶不振
    太多东西需要时间的洗礼...褪色,也可能是一种磨练
