住客臥室 - The Guest Bedroom



THE GUEST BEDROOM, originally uploaded by CRUSTINA!.


主唱狠暴力,其他很乾淨,綜合著說,就是搖滾。暴力的唱法有如Man Man,好久沒聽到那麼乾淨的噪音。



Sandi Falconer, Rob Castle, Alan Kelley, Quincy Yip.

有慾望,有慾望,有慾望




And it's a good noise.
by Sune Rose Wagner


Anyone fearing that Lust Lust Lust would be another record lost to over-production and slickness should, once they regain their hearing, be ecstatic.[*1]
by Tim Sendra


Sune Rose Wagner and Sharin Foo's twisted update on early rock riffs and Jesus & Mary Chain distortion was built for intensity, and when cranked up to speaker-rattling levels, that agenda is clear. Granted, any album would gain new (and not necessarily pleasing) power at exaggerated volumes, but Lust Lust Lust sounds specifically engineered for eardrum-exploding impact.[*2]
by Stephen M. Deusner


Be thankful, then, that The Raveonettes are super-cool Scandinavian noise-rockers and they’ve shored ‘Lust Lust Lust’ in that turmoil to create their most engrossing album to date.[*3]
by Hardeep Phull


Self-confident and ambitious, the Raveonettes entered the garage rock race of the new millennium with a stylish, brassy sound not heard since Sonic Youth's Daydream Nation.[*4]
by MacKenzie Wilson


時候,我會想要戒掉搖滾樂,就像怕沒有咖啡喝或沒有菸抽一樣。簡言之,在一個沒有音樂的世界裡,跟從沒有3J或披頭四存在的世界一樣的死寂沉悶,在那樣的世界裡極有可能出現劇烈的頭痛和胃痛,然後四肢無力口吐白沫接著就死了,那樣很可悲吧。但,現在這個世界還沒有這麼悲慘。

當音樂從第一軌流露出來,這世界便是你自己的,只有你和音樂。

聽著聽著便想起還在中興念書的時候,夜晚曾經有一次獨自從男宿騎著鐵馬到烏日車站。那晚的夜空與其說看不清星星,還不如說連月亮都躲進混濁的空氣裡。只有郊外詭譎的寧靜,和城市的喧囂形成無法應付的錯覺。停在高鐵的烏日站外,看著龐然建築和暴力的怪手,那時很難想像這裡通車後會怎樣。

聽The Raveonettes很容易想到曾經,曾經的種種,還是我,都是這樣子的?

Midnight Movies - Nights in White satin



Midnight Movies @ Echoplex (Los Angeles, CA 2-5-2008), originally uploaded by eatmeatnow.


以為他們換了風格,原來是唱了Cover,不過這可是Cover六零年代的大團,憂鬱藍調合唱團(The Moody Blues)的第二張錄音室專輯Days of Future PassedNights in White Satin,總而言之實在太精采了,雖然無法超越前作(哀,吉米去世之後就很少人可以輕鬆超越前作了)。

重點在這,午夜電影(Midnight Movies)的新EP(Nights EP)北美這個月十一日上市,台灣嘛...就用訂了吧,不然現在可以到他們的MySpace.com試聽,雖然只有三首新歌。

帶點魔力的樂團,剛開始染上時會一直瘋狂無限反覆地重聽。這種抒情的風格,加點迷惑的效果真好。

Sound of Color



The Raveonettes, originally uploaded by DaveyWilson.


"We were looking for new ways to connect with people, and so much of today's music scene is digital," Gap director of advertising Jamie Gersch says.[1]


"I don't think we've ever tried to make a song with a particular purpose before," vocalist/guitarist Sune Rose Wagner says.[2]


期的新聞,唯一寫出來的原因是,The Raveonettes的音樂真是不賴,Lust Lust Lust是直到目前為止,今年聽過最耐聽的專輯。"Black/White"這一首歌只是藉著Sound of Color(企劃案)讓我聽到更洗練的The Raveonettes而已。

除了"Black/White",我終於見識到Ellis Gallagher的真功夫,他的現場秀出現在Marié Digby的Sunshine裡面。

兔子習慣男人男人


Rabbit Habits


Their musical style has been described as Viking-vaudeville, Manic Gypsy Jazz.


不起,我寫文章很慢。

要不是Man Man即將要出新專輯(third studio album, Rabbit Habits, released on Apr 8, 2008),我大概不會發佈這一篇文章吧(又變成一篇永無止境的草稿文)。

Man Man是個四到六人的雜耍團,簡直和!!!有得比,在費城成立,發跡於紐約。風格如引文,直接翻譯是"維京-雜技,躁狂吉普賽爵士樂",總而言之,有韻味的噪音。
