Snapline - Party Is Over, Pornostar

兵馬司唱片(Maybe Mars)廠牌的第三張出品,是北京三人樂隊Snapline的首張專輯《Party Is Over,Pornostar》。
由歌手陳曦、低音結他手李維思以及結他兼鍵琴手李青(她也是Carsick Cars的團員)所組成的Snapline,他們為當年發起No Beijing樂潮的四支樂團之一。外界把他們概括為一支Post-Punk樂伍,聆聽其《Party Is Over,Pornostar》專輯時,總不難尋見師承自Joy Division、PIL、The Cure的音樂熏陶而來,加上他們的歌曲又是全英語主唱,Snapline身上的英倫Post-Punk甚至是Art Punk底蘊之濃烈,乃毋庸置疑。
陳曦的主唱滲著冷冷而內斂的情感,演繹出一份後崩樂隊的冷酷;利瓦伊思指上所遊走出是典型不過的Post-Punk式Bassline;而李青的吉他彈奏時而撲朔迷離、時而卻又築起Noisenik的音牆。然而一行三人的他們並沒有鼓擊手,所以Snapline是那種“鼓機結他樂隊”。從鼓機輸出直擊心房的電氣化節拍馳騁,也成為了他們在音樂上的特質,甚至由於歌曲節拍的跳脫,故令到其音樂也可以納入所謂Dance-Punk之類別。
為《Party Is Over,Pornostar》揭開序幕的是“Close Your Cold Eyes”,那宛如糅合了The Cure般由結他勾勒出的迷離氛圍與Joy Division的緊湊節奏。然而緊接而來的“Holy Comments”卻是由Industrial結他Riff驅動的工業搖滾曲目,陳曦的歌聲卻來得好比John Lydon般狂放不羈兼且神經質,是足以令人著魔的狂舞亂調。而“Catch You Low”則讓急疾的鼓機節拍與連綿的後崩式Bassline絲絲入扣而來,為歌曲提供了一股低調的張力。
Snapline在這張專輯裡所構成,是一段分崩離析的音樂里程。 “Porno Star”叫人沉溺在其低迴、緩慢、混沌而Dubby的曲式,凝聚著一份蒼白的無力感,而且李青卻在稍後為歌曲綻放出排山倒海而來的結他噪音獨奏,相當之懾人心魄。另一方面,追女仔歌曲“Jenny”以及相當跳脫的“S#1”,是不折不扣的Dance -Punk之作;而“Let In”乘著4/4 Upbeat的節拍而來,配上迷離的結他彈奏,感覺可謂跟PIL的“Death Disco”來得同出一徹。 “Single Beat”那簡約的Post-Punk / New Wave曲風,又大可聯想到Wire呢。要急激的Post-Punk攻略,“Yellow Cab“是他們最狂野的一刻。
外界好像暫時沒有人為Snapline扣上Gothic的標籤,然而李青一手撲朔迷離的吉他勾线,卻不時為他們的歌曲掃上一片Gothic的幽悒色調。所以“S#2”足以跟那群Post-Punk / Gothic元老樂隊的快板歌曲作相提並論;緩慢陰鬱的Gothic曲目除了上述的“Porno Star”之外,那還有曲如其名地叫人聽得眩暈迷幻的“Spinning”吧。

Sulumi - What Has Happened To Me In This World

Review:
Anyone who’s seen him live knows that Sulumi (aka Sun Dawei) can headbang like no other. As an electronic artist who makes the rounds on the Beijing live music circuit, he caters to his audience: jumping around, arms pumping, even attempting the occasional stage dive. In short, he puts on a performance that’s as dynamic [...]
