【独立流行】Rules of Legal Love - Ariane Moffatt

俏皮女声+钢琴+小rock+偶尔点缀的电子,有一点嬉皮;有一点迷茫;有一点娇纵;有一点颓废。

Ariane Moffatt,原籍加拿大,现居住法国魁北克。已经出了两张自己作词作曲演唱的Album:一张是"Aquanaute", 另一张是" Le cœur dans la tête"。 

《Rules of Legal Love》

I'm in love with the part of you
That will keep us safe from the outside
I'm in love with the part of you
That will fix my broken heart

Say it again
Say it louder tonight

I'm in love with the part of you
That will not add to the weight on my shoulders
And I'm caught in a catch twenty-two
Cause you glow in the dark and help me run faster

Could one be more cruel
(Could I be more cruel, could I be more rude)
I forgot the rules
(Could I be more cruel, could I be more rude)

I'm in love with the part of you
That compliments this evil stepmother
I'm hungry for the part of you
Mmm... that satisfies every time we get closer

Could one be more cruel
(Could I be more cruel, could I be more rude)
I forgot the rules
The rules of legal love

【独立流行】One Evening - Feist

甜而不腻的嗓音,精致诡异的曲风,流行但不泛滥、轻松却不失沉静。

【独立摇滚】Doctor Blind - Emily Haines

这是一首溢满瑰丽氛围的绝美作品。飘渺的温润电气、似有若无的爵士节拍,与Emily Haines的如风耳语,描绘了新世代都会的冷艳迷魅,既梦幻又写实,既复古又摩登。

Emily Haines,加拿大多伦多独立摇滚乐队Metric的女主唱。她成长于艺术世家,父亲是加拿大有名的爵士诗人Paul Haines。Paul Haines。Emily Haines自幼遗传了父亲的才气与天资,歌声醇厚而富有张力。1996年自费出版了首张个人专辑《Cut in Half and Also Double》。1998年在纽约组了Indie-Dance乐队Metric,并在2000年成为Broken Social Scene的客席成员。

《Doctor Blind》

The lack of light, hollow sea
被黑暗吞噬,空洞的大海
Poison beaches, limousines
浑浊的海滩,豪华轿车
Toothless dentists, cops that kill
没牙齿的牙医,该死的警察
My baby's got the lonesome lows
那是我宝贝的寂寞低潮
don't quite go away overnight
别急着离开,留下来过夜

Doctor Blind, just prescribe the blue ones
盲医生,就开给我蓝色的
If the dizzying highs don't subside overnight
如果眩晕的快感一整夜都无法消退
Doctor Blind, just prescribe the red ones
那么盲医生,就给我开红色的
Da da-da, da-da da-dum, da da-da
Ah ah-ah, ah-ah da-dum, ah-da-da da
Hard to hold, cold to touch
难以掌控,冰冷的触感
Fall to pieces, treat the rush
瓦解成碎片,迎接高潮
In hindsight, primetime talk
事后想来,真是一次不可言说的体验
All your pain will end here
你所有的痛楚将在这里终结
Let the doctor soothe your brain, dear
让医生来缓解你的大脑,亲爱的
My baby's got the lonesome lows
那是我宝贝的寂寞低潮
don't quite go away overnight
别急着离开,留下来过夜
Doctor Blind, just prescribe the blue ones
盲医生,就开给我蓝色的
If the dizzying highs don't subside overnight
如果眩晕的快感一整夜都无法消退
Docter Blind, just prescribe the red ones
那么盲医生,就给我开红色的
Da, da-da-da, da da da da

【英式摇滚】What Will You Pay -  Forever Like Red

选自Forever Like Red发行于2007年的乐队唯一专辑《Distance》。整张碟没有任何商业气息,情绪化的编曲和人声,充满了自我宣泄。

他们的专辑发行在英国,玩的也是Britpop式的英国摇滚乐,但London四人组合FLR(Forever Like Red)并无一是英国人。词曲作者/主唱/吉他/钢琴的Cameron Meshell是个正宗的美国佬, 而贝斯手Mikkel Heimburger 和鼓手Jesper Kristensen则来自北欧摇滚强国丹麦,吉他手Pelle Hillstrom 来自Indie强国瑞典。可称得上是地道的多国部队。 

【独立民谣】passenger - Caravan

这首歌送给一个女孩,想对她说一句:“我只希望你快乐,即使你的快乐里不再有我。“

I just want you to be happy, even if that 'happy' doesn't include me anymore. 

Passenger,英国独立创作歌手,原名Mike Rosenberg,曾是民谣摇滚乐队"Passenger"主唱。作品极具英式幽默,夹杂电子和民谣,传达着略带悲情的英格兰风情。2012年发行专辑《All The Little Lights》,其中《Let Her Go》大获欢迎。

【梦幻流行】Song For a Sleeping Girl - Devics

选自加州乐队Devics发行于2006年的专辑《Push The Heart》。Devics一直有着颓废的美学倾向。他们的音乐决不矫揉造作,乐曲的排编干净利落,合成器的适当运用、细节上恰到好处的点染使他们制作出既大气又避免了过度华美的音乐。

以Dustin O'Halloran和Sara Lov为核心的Devics于1993年成立于洛杉矶,乐队成员还包括Ed Maxwell、Evan Schnabel。1996年,他们在以自己的资金注册的厂牌“Splinter Records”下推出了第一张大碟“Buxom”。

2009年,他们被美国国家公共电台(NPR)评为SXSW的百大乐队之一。

All the years that you have wasted
Now you want 'em all back
Long ago you stopped counting
Because you couldn't keep track
You were faced with a future
That was bright as the Sun
But the pressure it was melting
You decided to run
Don't you fold
When the mountain is high
When the river is wide
Don't you fold
When you're out of your mind

When you're walking the line
An oasis in the desert
Where the waters run clear
And the only way to see it
Is to believe that it's there
Well, we always fight our battles
No matter where you came
So, be done with your excuses
You're the only one to blame
Don't you fold
When the mountain is high
When the river is wide
Don't you fold
When you're out of your mind
When you're walking the line
And all this time,I was living a lie
I was lost and petrified
But I know that things
Could change in time
All the years dreams can buy
Between the heart and the mind
Don't you fold
When the mountain is high
When the river is wide
Don't you fold
When you're out of your mind
When you're walking the line
Don't you fold
When the mountain is high
When the river is wide
Don't you fold
When you're out of your mind
When you're walking the line
Don't you fold
Don't you fold

疲惫 变成消失的借口

不要 随便说说
不要 跟感觉走
不要 自然而然 无影无踪

维持客气 问候
我配合着 沉默
你要的  完美
我怎么  没有 听说过

在我前面的那个人 做什么事情 会将你吸引
一切变的都不容易 莫名的压力 如影随形
在我前面的那个人 他为什么  离开

你或许忘了,我也是骄傲的。我不像任何人,我只是我自己。

不要拿我跟ta比,我不是任何人的影子,不是谁的替代品,更不是谁能退而求其次的选择。

你是我的专属记忆,你却只能给我一场虚无的爱情。

“就让它散了吧!我又不是你的那个ta。即使能在一起,又如何?”

《Lonely World》

With everything being as it is now
We should be together
There's no one else to say my name the way you knew how
To make it all seem better
I know the jokes on me
Cause everyone's laughing
The lonely world, is not so bad
The lonely world, it's all I have. It's all I have.
So come and see, what's left of me
In the lonely world

I live alone I lived a lie that keeps me shaking
every drama moment
you try to toss the way the day u start breaking
The trick is never holding
On to a bleeding heart
Until she stops screaming
The lonely world, is not so bad
The lonely world, it's all I have. It's all I have.
Do u see, what's left of me
In the lonely world

I can't help that it is a lonely world
A Lonely world, my friend
I can't stop it if you say it first
Say it first, again
The lonely world, is not so bad
The lonely world, it's all I have. It's all I have.
So come and see,what's left OF me
In the lonely world

(with everything being as it is now)
(you live alone, you live a lie)
(every drawn out moment)

well I jumped a train,
when I want to go,
and for where she's bound,
I don't want to know
Roll on Babe,
Don't you roll so slow,
when the wheel don't turn,
you won't roll no more.
Well I've been drinking gin
I drank some whiskey too,
well I got hooked what you gonna do

Don't you roll so slow,
when the wheel don't turn,
you don't roll no more.

929的歌青春而明亮,有一种愉快的自然调调。安逸中有着不甘平凡,内敛中有着向前飞的梦想。

929,曾是台湾最受瞩目的乐团之一。主唱志宁始终以诗般的人文词作搭配民谣风格的动人旋律,建立了929的灵魂与骨干。之后,有了Bass手嘟嘟的加入,他自由奔放的Bass声线和手鼓节奏,为929的人文气息更添神采。

《也许像星星 》

也许像星星 也许是梦境
也许是你紧紧拥抱 温暖和甜蜜
也许会哭泣 也许有怀疑
我不要这世界穿著 虚假的彩衣
我要看清我自己
是不是有一天我也一样
承认这个世界它就是这样
唱的歌曲要不痛不痒
做人道理是有话不能讲
这个城市有太多伪装
阴暗的角落却照不到阳光
人来人往匆匆忙忙
我多么希望能跨越那座墙
小鸟在偷偷看 小花在偷偷看
小黄在偷偷看 他们在偷偷看
看我的无助与榜徨
小河在静静听 山也在静静听
听小小的声音 却越来越清晰
那是我回家的足迹
也许像星星 也许是梦境
也许是你紧紧拥抱 温暖和甜蜜
也许会哭泣 也许有怀疑
我不要这世界唱著 虚假的旋律
我要看清我自己

【民谣摇滚】Morning Light - 100 Mile House

选自加拿大独立民谣乐队100 Mile House发行于2011年的专辑《Hollow Ponds》。

歌词大意:我梦想在海边有一幢自己的房子,养些家禽和猫咪,甚至可以拥有属于自己的小船。我们一起相伴去集市,买些你爱的法棍和起司,买瓶红酒再买些我爱喝的茶叶。傍晚,我们携手在海边散步,捡拾沙滩上的贝壳;入夜,我们十指相扣,相拥看满天的繁星……

《Morning Light》

if I had the money, I'd live by the sea

with a city upon us, for when we need to leave

with a duck and some kittens, and maybe a boat

i never could sail, but I could learn by the coast


we'll head to the market, for some french bread and cheese

a bottle of red, and refill the tea

and we'd lose ourselves, in the sheets for the day

bodies for landscape, I'd get lost on the way


and I, want to talk with you

speak 'til night is through

leave with our hands held tight

walk 'til the morning light

please


when we're lookin' for something, to give us a kick

we'll head to the city, for a weekend of it

and I'll chase your skirt, up them stairs one more time

though you promise to leave me, 'cuz you laugh 'til you cry


we'll stay undercover, 'til the sun has gone down

we'll throw on some clothes, and explore the town

try the bars down on King Street, and head up to Queen

a smile on our faces, 'cuz we know what we've seen


and I, want to talk with you

speak 'til night is through

leave with our hands held tight

walk 'til the morning light

please

The love that once was given

You knew the dreams for me was better
Having to let them go
Yes you saw the dreamboat so much better
It's always saw
So many times I must have hurt you
Not finding ways like you

For me to be getting through
But dreams for me are better
Having to let them go
Dreams are always better

犹如曾经不经意的一瞥

Burdened bands gain strong hands

被埋藏的手获得了强有力的帮助

Gaping holes where diamonds should be

张开的洞是钻石所在之处

Must have been the morning that stole them

必须在早上把他们偷出

A glint of white in the pocket of winter, oh, oh

冬天的口袋里的一束闪烁白光

And some hearts are ghosts settling down in dark waters

有些心如同鬼魂一般在黑暗的水里沉着

Just as silt grows heavy and drowns with the stones

就像是被泥沙重重地压着 和石头沉在一起

Some hearts are ghosts settling down in dark waters

有些心如同鬼魂一般在黑暗的水里沉着

Just as silt grows heavy and drowns with the stones, oh, oh

就像是被泥沙重重地压着 和石头沉在一起

I've known mornings white as diamonds

我所知的早上犹如钻石一般白亮

Silent from a night so cold

如同寒冷的黑夜 如此的寂静

Such a stillness, calm as the owl glides

如此的沉静 就像猫头鹰掠过

Our lives are buried in snow

我们的生命就这样被埋藏在雪里

Our lives are buried in snow

我们的生命就这样被埋藏在雪里

【独立摇滚】Pills - The Perishers ; Sarah McLachlan

The Perishers是一支来自瑞典的独立摇滚乐队,成立于1997年,乐队成员由Ola Klüft (主唱, 吉他手)、 Martin Gustafson(键盘手)、Pehr Åström (贝斯手)和Thomas Hedlund (鼓手)组成。乐队于2010年解散,成员Klüft在2011年4月14日发行个人专辑。

Ola清雅闲淡的嗓音让他们的音乐更加的趋向清新乐派的手法,歌曲的气氛往往远大于乐器本身的伴奏,主唱的声音往往是全场的主角,所以尽管许多首歌曲都有邀请其它的乐手增加其润度,但显然主唱声音的位置永远是摆在第一线的位置。

【独立民谣】Monday Morning (Bonus Cd) - Louis Eliot

“时间一轮一轮,覆盖昨日每时每分。这不是你造成的,若你最终还是没有回来,我想我也不会继续等待。”

幽暗华丽的英伦摇滚乐队Rialto于2002年以解散收场,主唱Louis Eliot单飞做起了自己喜欢的独立民谣。这张个人专辑风格上与Rialto有相当大的分别,没有煽情,省去电子,只剩下aoucstic的单纯,感觉更类似unplugged。

《Monday Morning》

At eight o'clock we said goodbye

A pint of milk,food for the cat

It's 6 pm
下午6点了
At half past two I picture her in the back of someone else's car
两点半的时候 我拍到她坐进了别人的车
He runs his fingers through her hair
那个男人的手 穿过她的秀发
Oh you shouldn't let him touch you there
哦 你不应该让他触碰的
It's Monday morning
5:19星期一凌晨5:19
And I'm still wondering where she's been
我还在想她去了哪儿
Everytime I try to call,I just get her machine

她如果再不回电话 我们就结束了
It's 6 pm
可现在已经下午6点了 我还在等她

【独立民谣】Even Now - William Fitzsimmons

好的民谣并不总是需要深沉和悲伤的表达,平淡的美有时反而更打动人心。

William Fitzsimmons是来自宾夕法尼亚州的一位创作型歌手。虽然William出生在一对盲人夫妻的家庭,但值得庆幸的是他在音乐方面的天赋却是上帝给他的最珍贵的礼物。其作品的灵感,主要来自于个人和家庭生活。这张发行于2008年的专辑《The Sparrow & The Crow》据说是给他前妻的表白和歉意。

How long should I wait before I let you go?

Whose eyes will you look at when love is in your heart?

Whose hand will hold your ring?
你的手会被谁牵着戴上戒指
Whose voice will serenade to help your baby sleep?
你的孩子将会在谁的轻声哼唱中入睡
To make it all okay?
现在的你感到幸福了吗
Oh that I love you, even still. Even now.
我爱你,即使时光荏苒,即使是现在
Even though we fell apart.

【独立民谣】贰佰《抬头》

每个人的头顶上都有一个最美的穹顶,我们却鲜有时间抬头仰望一下。且将过往寄存于星空,每回抬头满眼都是闪耀的感动。

《嘿,抬头!》是贰佰送给一位大自己十几岁的“老”朋友,一位热爱文艺也办过乐队演出的咖啡馆老板。“人生不会如你所愿,总会有迷失的时候,但即使坠入黑暗一无所有,我们也可以站在星空下,和自己的灵魂互相取暖。所以,迷失的时候,请抬头!”

我有一个朋友
三年前认识他的时候
他还不像现在这样消瘦
他总是低着头
翻一翻手机里过去的相片
发几条微博
记录着自己的生活
他总是一个人过着
没事就听一听安静的歌
在每一个孤独的夜晚
他总是喝多了酒

有时候他会想起那些远在远方的老朋友
也经常想起那些曾经的爱情和他一起牵过的手
他不会像大部分的男人一样过着平庸的生活
在每个灿烂的星空下
他总说
嘿,抬头!
哎……我的这个朋友
他说在他年轻的时候
也像我一样奋不顾身的为了爱情和自由
他总是抽着烟
向别人诉说他失败的婚姻
和那些值得让他骄傲的曾经和过去
他热爱现在这样的生活
不会在碌碌无为中度过
愿我在四十岁的年纪
也能像他一样牛逼
有时候他会想起那些远在远方的老朋友
也经常想起那些曾经的爱情和他一起牵过的手
我会不会像他一样
在不惑之年的时候
一个人穿过拥挤的人流
错过了就别回头
有时候我也会想起那些远在远方的老朋友
也经常怀疑到底会有什么样的爱情能永垂不朽
我不会像大部分的男人一样过着平庸的生活
在每个灿烂的星空下
对自己说
嘿,抬头!

【独立音乐】yellow - Jem

Puts on a smile and breathes it in
and breathes it out, he says,
bye bye bye to all of the noise.
Oh, he says, bye bye bye to all of the noise.

Doo doo doo doo doo noo noo
Hey child, things are looking down.
That’s okay, you don’t need to win anyways.
Don’t be afraid, just eat up all the gray
and it will fade all away.
Don’t let yourself fall down.

Doo doo doo doo doo noo noo

Bad day, looking for the great escape.
He says, bad day, looking for the great escape.
On a bad day, looking for the great escape,
the great escape.
