Kettles through their “Heart of Glass” Cover and found an interesting band of two members, Drums and Guitar.
Love their most recent
cover, “Lift” by Radiohead. Actually, “Cover” is a not the fitting word here as the music is copied, but the lyrics are different.
Radiohead Lyrics are about being in a safe place, isolated when it is time to come home, Kettles Lyrics are about a new start. Similar in a way, but different.
(Translation below is not complete)
I walked in shoes that cannot run
Cloudy days continue
Time to say goodbye, throw away
Morning is coming
Want to live a life without lies, spread my wings and fly
Facing a new morning, new days are coming.
Not looking back
As expected, The Cure 40th Anniversary concert, is sold out.
Planned for July 7 in Hyde Park. Had considered going there, but obviously did not do enough to plan and purchase a ticket.
Should I get excited?
All music sites,
spin, pitchfork discuss the new album by the Breeders.
Release is expected March 2nd, with only two songs released. I like “Wait in the Car” better than “All Nerve”, but I definitely missed Kim Deal’s voice and Bass.
Hope I don’t get disappointed.
Interesting article from Pitchfork.
As it happens, I was 26, and one of the years I invested a lot of my time and money to listening to music.
For me, the Chemical brothers and Radiohead are the top two and still shine after 20 years.
Also interesting is that I just noticed that Mogwai’s cover has “Fuji Bank” (Fuji Ginko) on it. The bank does not longer exist and
this blog post tracks the location of the photo.
Definitely not a new song, but a song that accompanies me for many years.
One of the best books I have read (multiple times) and one of the best songs I know.
The song actually starts from bullying and being a stranger, with a clear reference to Albert Camus at the end.
MOTHER died today. Or, maybe, yesterday; I can’t be sure.
But then it cuts off to
At the funeral they expected me to cry
Well I didn’t
Trying to bring the conclusion or more “strangeness” into the song.
Sitting at Starbucks in the morning, I suddenly realized that the Slowdive song is coming from the shop’s speakers, not from my earphones.
A great song and a great choice. I wonder if the staff knows it.
Cannot even describe how excited I am with the
new Slowdive album .
Loved Slowdive and Mojave3 and was even lucky enough to see Mojave3 live in London.
Trying to figure out their tour plans, but it seems they do not plan to visit Japan anytime soon.
Been following both Soko (musician) and Ninagawa Mika (Photographer) for a while, so you can guess how delighted I am that they met and work together.
Result will appear in
Nero Magazine. Looking forward to it
Received an email from Blue note thanking me attending the concert.
website include wonderful photos which capture the vitality and energies.
(Maybe too much contrast in the photos, but still wonderful).
Now, can you find me in the crowd?
Blue Note Tokyo last night For Sebuhiroko’s live, Album release tour.
and from her Instagram account:
As she said during the concert, difficult to call two shows a tour, but it is still called so by the production company.
I love the Blue Note, the crowd and I love Sebuhiroko. Not really the standard Blue Note music, she rocked in some songs, Alternative in others, Jazzy in some. Explosion of music, passion on stage. It was great. It was obvious she is having wonderful time on stage and wished she could do it more.
Some songs from the Album were arranged differently, “Night Walk” changed from a loud rock sounds, to one guitar in slower rhythm.
Another that caught my attention is Zazen boys’ 本能寺 (
Honno- ji) cover, which was excellent, Jazzy, Rocky, Cute, Loud .
Could find this
cover on youtube from a concert last year, the original Zazen Boys is here.
