La música es una combinación coherente de sonidos y silencios

Villagers – Nothing Arrived

22 de junio, 2016 · No hay Comentarios

220px-Villagers_Awayland_ArtworkCuando escuché por vez primera esta canción, me conquistó. ¿Por qué? Pues porque es un oxímoron en toda regla. Una canción optimista (o como la propia banda la denomina “joyful song“) con mensaje derrotista. No hay más que escuchar el estribillo: “I waited for something, and something died. So I waited for nothing, and nothing arrived“. Ojo con no esperar nada porque puede que entonces la nada te encuentre.

Brillante también el videoclip:

Letra:

Savannah scatters and the seabird sings
So why should we fear what travel brings?
What were we hoping to get out of this?
Some kind of momentary bliss?

[estribillo]
I waited for something, and something died
So I waited for nothing, and nothing arrived

It’s our dearest ally, it’s our closest friend
It’s our darkest blackout, it’s our final end
My dear sweet nothing, let’s start anew
From here on in it’s just me and you

[estribillo]

Well, I guess it’s over
I guess it’s begun
It’s a loser’s table, but we’ve already won
It’s a funny battle, it’s a constant game
I guess I was busy when nothing came

I guess I was busy…
(When nothing arrived)
I guess I was busy…
(When nothing arrived)
I guess I was busy…
(And nothing arrived)
I guess I was busy…

[estribillo]

James Vincent McMorrow – Glacier

23 de mayo, 2016 · No hay Comentarios

Post TropicalJames Vincent McMorrow es una de esas voces que te calienta el corazón. La primera vez que la escuché (en cierto anuncio navideño ;-)), he de reconocer que confundí ese falsete con el de Antony And The Johnsons. En una segunda escucha, me vino Bon Iver a la cabeza. Pero tras darle más oportunidades, ya tiene su espacio propio en mi reproductor.

Por cierto, como canción propina, os recomiendo que escuchéis la versión que tiene de Wicked Game. Se te ponen los vellos como escarpias. Y si has sido fan de Friends, te pondrás también en modo nostálgico on, aunque precisamente esta cover fue usada en uno de los trailers de Juego de Tronos.

Letra:

Someone here’s a lie, somewhere underneath
Caught between the railing, mirroring the beat
I no longer feel and the years asleep
Show no sense of hope, staring honestly

[estribillo]
I wanna go south of the river
Glacier slow in the heart of the winter
I wanna go south of the river, facing alone in the heart of the winter

And this we’ll celebrate, this we’ll celebrate
There and on the stage, this is a mistake
Damn me off too long, down the earth and moon
Damn the clawing kneeling, rustling into change
In a moment I was caught, calling by a storm
In the moment of a hot

[estribillo]

I’m not in a glove called how

Few became, few became as glory as along
Against the forest state and starting living in the new

Harrow since, harrow since the farthest
Reach underneath inside a cheat
Something is alive, somewhere underneath
Caught between the real and the fake
I don’t want to fit, there and has been found
Silence is so cold, and there’s no sense at all
And I was someone else, I was something good
Barely in the old, there among the cold

[estribillo]

Alice On The Roof – Easy Come Easy Go

6 de marzo, 2016 · No hay Comentarios

Alice-on-the-Roof-660x377-200x200Llevo toda la semana rumiando esta cita de Gandhi: “La satisfacción radica en el esfuerzo, no en el logro”. La banda sonora ideal para esta idea es la canción que hoy os traigo y que habla de que lo que viene fácil, fácil se va también.

Mucho ojo a esta joven artista belga, que un día se atrevió a mandar su música a Tim Bran (London Grammar, La Roux, KT Tunstall…). El reconocido productor cayó embelesado por su dulce voz y le ha ayudado con su primer y único disco hasta el momento: Easy Come Easy Go.

Letra:

My chest is getting tight
I’ve got nothing to hide
I take it all on board
I’ve got to crack the code

Everything coincides
Heavy are these skies
I wanna make a vow
To make this right somehow

[estribillo]
It’s killing you inside
Fighting against the tide
I’m sinking like a stone
Easy come easy go
I gave you all I had
A fool could tell you that
Been hiding out below
Easy come easy go

Footprints in the snow
I’ll follow where you go
In my mind I’ve made a plan
In my mind I understand

Take me back to the start
To mend a broken heart
To see what I’d become
To right the wrongs I’ve done

[estribillo]

It’s hidden in your eyes
A look betrays a lie
I didn’t even know
I didn’t even know

It’s killing you inside
Fighting against the tide
I’m sinking like a stone
Easy come easy go

It’s killing you inside
Fighting against the tide
I didn’t even know
I didn’t even know

I gave you all I had
A fool could tell you that
Been hiding out below
Easy come easy go

Kadebostany – Castle In The Snow

22 de febrero, 2016 · No hay Comentarios

KadebostanySegundo post del mes. Oye, que lo mismo cojo carrerilla y recupero el ritmo… Bueno, no cantemos victoria tan pronto ;-). Os contaré mi secreto: últimamente tengo una nueva fuente de inspiración. La lista que genera automáticamente Spotify todas las semanas en base a los gustos de cada usuario con 30 canciones nuevas. Y os puedo asegurar que encuentro temazos que no tenía fichados. Así es como di con esta banda suiza que solo tiene dos álbumes en el mercado. El último, Pop Collection (2013), esconde esta joyita. Y hoy lo traigo porque me quedo con la parte de “I’m a zombie. I don’t know what to do. I should be done in the place. But I gotta stay, stay, stay”. Qué duros son los lunes…

Letra:

The light is fading now
My soul is running on a puff
That I cannot reach
My brain is turnin’
And my head is hurtin’
Every day a little bit more

The light is fading now
My forces is being sucked by
A bloody leach
My fear is smilin’
And my threat is singin’
Every night a little bit more

I cannot see anything
I am blindfolded

[estribillo]
I can hear the birds
I can see them fly
I can see the sky
I can hear the birds
I can see them fly
I can see the sky
It’s about to cry

I’m a zombie
I don’t know what to do
I should be done in the place
But I gotta stay, stay, stay
Stay, stay, stay
Stay

I’m so lonely
I don’t know if I get through
I wanna be floating in space
But I gotta stay, stay, stay
Stay, stay, stay
Stay

[estribillo]

The Antlers – Kettering

15 de febrero, 2016 · No hay Comentarios

6108940_the_antlers_hospice_200Recupero la banda sonora de mi vida tras muchos meses de parón. La última entrada era de junio de 2015, nada más y nada menos. Lo que antes era capaz de sublimar a través de la música, durante un tiempo no terminaba de salir. Pero este single de The Antlers ha logrado desbloquear algo. No sé el qué. Ha sido escuchar esta canción, llegar a los minutos finales y notar ese clic. Quizás sea esa voz desgarrada de Peter Silberman, que tanto me recuerda a la de Antony and the Johnsons.

Como siempre, no prometo nada. Puede que a partir de ahora, recupere el ritmo. O puede que no. Mientras tanto, siempre nos quedará la lista de Spotify, que se acerca peligrosamente a las 24 horas de escucha ininterrumpida (o casi si no tenéis cuenta premium ;-)). Os recomiendo subir el volumen, cerrar los ojos y poneros cómodos/as:

Letra:

I wish that I had known in
That first minute we met
The unpayable debt
That I owed you

‘Cause you’d been abused
By the bone that refused
You and you hired me
To make up for that

And walking in that room
When you had tubes in your arms
Those singing morphine alarms
Out of tune

They had you sleeping and eating and
And I didn’t believe them
When they called you a hurricane thunderclap

When I was checking vitals
I suggested a smile
You didn’t talk for a while
You were freezing

You said you hated my tone
It made you feel so alone
So you told me I had to be leaving

But something kept me standing
By that hospital bed
I should have quit but instead
I took care of you

You made me sleep and uneven
And I didn’t believe them
When they told me that there
Was no saving you
