Yo La Tengo - There's A Riot Going On [Artist V-Z]

ソフトフォーカスがかったアブストラクトでドリーミーな音響空間をロックの文脈上に構築。
自分たちらしさを保ちつつ、はっとする新しさを持ち込み続けることのできる彼らの才覚は稀有のもの。
気持ちよさを通り越し、神々しさすら感じさせる本作の美しさは、何層にも渡る複雑な心象感覚を創発させる。
それはちょうど「RIOT」と題されたタイトルが、単純な社会事件をあらわす言葉としてだけではなく、ごく近しい身の回り、そして自分自身の心の中にもある、心の揺れ動きや歪みにもつながることに気づかされるような。
そしてそのことを客観的に対象化しつつも、自分の一部として認め受け入れ、進み続ける(GOING ON)ことまでをも内包する、深く優しい音楽であるのだ。

Mogwai - Every Country's Sun [Artist M-O]

I was riding the subway to my office the other morning.
An old man was sitting in the priority seat and I happened to stand in front of him.
He was wearing a kaki jacket and a porkpie hat and had earphones in his ears.
He took out from his pocket a classic iPod, the one you don't see these days.
I'd being doing so until I decided to switch to iPhone quite recently.

He starting rolling the wheel with his trembling thick fingers.
It gradually took my attention and I watched him slowly raise his iPod closer to his face.
It seemed difficult for him reading the small fonts on the screen.
I also caught a glimpse of what he was looking at.

It read "Van Morrison."

I couldn't get the name of the song nor the album.
But gosh..

I was listening to Mogwai's new album Every Country's Sun.
I raised the volume of my iPhone a notch and took my eyes off to the window.

The music sounded ever so calm and blissful.
