    很久没有贴歌,导致差不多已经忘记格式是啥料...嗯,算是这周听的最多的一张专辑...
    网上关于乐队的介绍基本都是韩文,所以也没查到甚么有参考价值的信息,只知道乐队之前还有一张싱글(Scent of Orchid)的Ep囧
    整张专辑以钢琴为主线,配以提琴,吉他,加上男声女声,感觉有些许像韩国版变异Gregor Samsa...

    The Amber Light - [Music]

    How to describe the music of THE AMBER LIGHT? Electrifyingly atmospherical, heavily strumming, dreamy and rapturous. Always manifold, sometimes accentuated with minimalistic, crackling fragile soundscapes, sometimes piling up to monumental walls of noise. A bit of art here, some pathos there. Alternative rock meets beat/psychedelic, meets post/emo/shoegazer blah blah blah… Or something like that!

    But then again, maybe it’s just pop music. Maybe you should listen to it and love it before losing yourself in a never ending narcistic craze of definitions. The story of the band begins in the summer of 2001, when Louis Gabbiani, Jan Sydow and Rabin Dasgupta meet in their sleepy town to develop their first own songs. This is followed by the recording of their debut album "Goodbye to Dusk Farewell to Dawn" and of the EP "Stranger & Strangers". Live performances take them to Germany, France, Poland, Holland, Belgium and Luxembourg, supporting bands like WIR SIND HELDEN, ARCHIVE and THE POSIES. Right now, the band is back in the studio, recording their second album.

     2oo2: As They Came They Slightly Disappeared [Ep]
     2oo4: Goodbye to Dusk, Farewell to Dawn, & Review
     2oo5: Stranger and Strangers [Ep], & Review
     2oo8: Play

    为甚麽会下The Amber Light我已经忘掉了,直觉?...在家修养几天过后,回到学校觉得是那么滴开心,跟那么滴热爱学习,哦P话- -...
    乐队成立于2oo1年,到目前为止一共是上面些Ep跟专辑('o2的Ep我自己是不怎么喜欢,有Discography癖的同学可以下来听听)...不过乐队常住人口到底是三个人还是四个人我还是搞不清楚...Whatever,主唱Louis Gabbiani的高亢声线倒是彻底地把我穿透了一回...
    ...My favourate track of the band: The Drowning Man In My Hands...还有,"With Tired Eyes, Tired Minds, Tired Souls, We Slept"这个是我听的时候脑子里冒出来的句子...Of Course from EITS...

    P话: Myspace.cn脑子有问题大,加个水印找死啊...没错,我喜欢用省略号跟虚词...

    氤.氲下江南 - [Music]

    已经差不多忘记怎么从豆瓣上看来这个Event,不过还依稀记得当时看到如此多参加跟感兴趣的人时,脑子里所想象的现场会出现的状况...
    还第一次去Live Bar,至少离家蛮近,坐一辆公交车大概3omins不到就可以到达...(中间由于路盲关系,给老板打了电话,稍费周折才到,又是小路- -)...到的时候大概7点一刻...扫一眼大致环境还比较普通...吧台跟靠墙一圈已经基本被坐满,还有台最前面几排藤椅也是,还站着些人...进去後在离台最远的吧台前面找了个位置坐,蛮好,可以靠,可惜的是票子不能换啤酒,只好自己掏钱买...台上21g在调试设备,接着是Muscle Snog...正式开始大概是在8点一刻左右...

     21 Grams (上海)
    主要是对新歌比较感兴趣,按查礼谭的话讲就是,一首是在立夏创作的所以就叫这儿名了,还有一首是在立冬写的,不过叫"立冬"不好听,所以就叫暖冬了...作为第一个表演的团体,21g给人的感觉还比较舒服,在两首ep作品之后基本已经进入状态,个人比较喜欢"暖冬",一是因为他们在调试的时候已经弹过一遍,第二次再听就比较容易把握情绪..基本维持之前风格,优雅而美感,键盘的感觉很好哈哈...如果不说名字的话我估计会将两首位置互换- -...
    八卦:21g的鼓手喜欢抿嘴,基本上高潮时候都在使劲地抿嘴...不敲的时候嘴就张的老大...

     The Fragile (香港)
    第一反应比21g多个女人- -,俩...然后主唱看上去蛮纤弱,Fragile...基本上团员年龄应该不大吧...
    The Fragile应该是当晚演出时间比较长的一个,不过正值10点多前后,多少让我有些犯困(个人原因)...一开始就呈现出浓浓Shoegazing/Dream Pop味道,主唱的声音很飘,不过我没听的很清楚唱了点啥,直到第三首的时候才把我从困倦中拽了回来,拉进The Fragile所呈现的沉郁而绚丽的世界...

     Grace Latecomer (蘇州)
    就现场效果跟观众反应来讲,Grace Latecomer无疑是当晚的最佳...与听Ep不同的是现场所营造的气氛,乐手往台上一站的气质,以及表演时乐手情绪的表达跟传递都对观众影响巨大...各就各位之后觉得Bass的姿态简直就是WEG- -...之前觉得内地后摇开头总是蛮像那么回事的,中间不知道混了些啥,然后就Loud了,之后也就这样了...至少Grace Latecomer当晚的新歌没出现这样的状况,自始至终表现出自己的坚实基础跟深厚底蕴,或许只有当时在现场的人能体会当时乐队的那种摄人心魄的气势...只用言语概括太"轻,薄"了...
    八卦:我看到Grace Latecomer鼓手亲鼓棒了,还有听酒吧人说他在苏州也是开酒吧当老板的,还说店很嗲...

     Muscle Snog (上海)
    说实话这次也没作过啥功课,关于香港的两支乐队也没试听一下,就连Event下面的介绍也只看了演出的时间跟地点,基本上每个乐队演些啥脑子里没个概念...所以当看到Muscle Snog蹦上去吼的时候,我真的是顿了那么一下下- -...乐队玩的是噪音,介绍里写的蛮清楚也蛮会色...现场应该蛮即兴的,乐器发出一阵阵奇怪声响的时候倒是有很多人凑到台四周拍照...至于Bass吼了点啥,除了后来反应过来有句"和谐社会"甚么的,其他我基本没听清楚,自我保护吧...话说他们演出前超级的正常,就坐在我边上的一个桌子围一圈,玩马利奥...

     Slept In Spray (香港)
    也是当晚很喜欢的一个...看了看,他们的鼓手确实也是The Fragile的鼓手Ho(陳家豪)...乐队调试设备用了比较长的时间,带有电音的配置让我开始就感到比较的好奇...演出即将开始之前,几个人戴上了准备好的头套(就Neocha照片上的),引得台下欢呼声一片...乐队在表演的时候还配上了自己录的一段影像,最后出来的标题是"Finding Something"...随着画面节奏的加快,器乐加之键盘所营造出来的高潮渐渐喷涌而出,实在是让我折服不已...希望以后可以看到他们的专场Live...
    不过我不知道他们现场演出的是不是就是外面卖的单曲,所以也没买...唉,没做功课苦啊...

    最后结束的时间大概是11点三刻,也许是比较晚的缘故,没有人叫Encore...也或许蛮多人只想再看看Grace Latecomer吧...
    整晚5个乐队的演出没有风格上的撞车,各自呈现自己理念中的音墙效果...规矩后摇也好,混乱噪音也好,都鲜明表现出了自己本身的个性...很多感受无法用言语来表达,只求当时身在其中...

    P话:结束之后的雨下的真撮...还有我搭讪的水平还真四搭将- -...

    Indie-pop/Shoegaze/Filipino(not use band pic coz i like this one)

    Myspace--Lastfm
    Members: aj. dino. jojo. melanie. richard

    The term "dreampop" gets a new and wider meaning when the Philippine quintet Moscow Olympics release their debut single on Fraction Discs. Pop as a dream come true, two tracks that raise their gaze off their shoes, stare into the skies and fill the unexpected yet somehow eagerly awaited gap in your record collection - the one between Blueboy's "Unisex" and The Wake's "Here Comes Everybody"--Fraction Discs

    近日流传于music blog间的菲律宾五人吉它乐团Moscow Olympics,成员分别来自当地盯鞋indie-pop乐队(Colour Contest, Soft Pillow Kisses, Candy Audioline, 和Dorian Of Juniper Bells),团名大概是取自orange juice的同名曲,成立于07年5月,首张7-inch单曲"The Still"去年由瑞典厂牌Fraction Discs代理发行

    噪音味不是很浓,清新梦幻,吉它很好听,首推Still
    对菲律宾好感度直升,期待新专辑

    不噪,接受范围以内...很着迷
    虽然自己不是Indie Pop/Rock爱好者,对Shoegaze也不很感冒,不过偶尔在tierra那儿下点来听总会很中意...
    怎么说呢,小姑娘应该都像tierra学习,甚么Metal,甚么暗色系,统统不要听,听听这样的多好...没错,我很很很很偏见...
    总结句:我是tierra粉...
