來自Chris Garneau的多愁善感

Label:Absolutely Kosher︱2007

對這位來自紐約Brooklyn的唱作人Chris Garneau的首張專輯感興趣,全因碟名【Music For Tourists】及其封面的墮機圖像。

我反覆聽了四五次,以鋼琴為基調的Minimal音樂,沒鼓沒bass,偶爾有絃樂。旋律不強,Chris Garneau 那把帶點陰柔單薄的聲線在懶散的節奏下有如喃喃自語,如果他用上結他等搖滾樂,那肯定是sadcore。歌詞沒有多少跟旅遊有關,圍繞與朋友或愛人的細微關係,似是女生多愁善感的日誌。初聽有點像不騷不癢,但再聽卻被這樣簡約的氣氛吸引,然後就被那些坦白直接的感情事感染。輕快一點的小品《Blue Suede Shoes》與及這首《Not Nice》對朋友或身邊人的坦白,很窩心。

Not Nice – Chris Garneau

Always so still, i never will, be like you.
And you never will strike, me better
ba da…

It’s always so clear, you never really hear, at all..
and i fear, that you wont get better
ba da dum …..

As when you’re not being nice,
you’re not nice, you’re not nice,
you’re not nice.
I’d rather leave you alone,
I’m gonna leave you alone

You’ve been quiet for so long,
something was wrong,
you never said it a word.
So i know that you won’t get better,
ba da dum ……

that’s your fifth drink,
don’t you think, that that’s a lot?
Considering we’ve only been her for a little while now
oh ohhh oh

when you’re not being nice,
you’re not nice, you’re not nice,
you’re not nice.
I’d rather leave you alone,
i’m gonna leave you alone

Your’ always so still,
I, never will
be like you-hew-hew,
and you never will strike me a better at all- ohh oah

Sometimes your nice,
but when you’re not nice, you’re not nice,
you’re not nice.
I’d rather leave you alone,
I’m gonna leave you alone.
