FLUX – 來自 1960 From 1960

你說想回去 你心目中的嬉皮
就能夠遇見 你仰望的自己 You say you want to go back, to when the hippy in you can meet the person you aspired to be
to somewhere 你回到的1960 to somewhere 是否一樣熟悉 to somewhere, you go back to 1960, to somewhere, is it as familiar?

也許
有一天我們會再見 認不出來你會是誰 perhaps one day we’ll meet again, won’t recognize who you are
想要說的也忘記了 能不能約在下次見面 forgot the things we wanted to say, would we be able to meet again
有一天我能回想起 原來的你是什麼模樣
我知道你不回來 one day I’ll remember, how you used to look, and how you’ll never come back
剩下的告別我會明白 What’s left is just goodbye

你說你不習慣 這種電子的音樂
想要回去聽 真實演奏的聲音 You say you’re not used to, this kind of EDM, you want to go back to listening, to real “live” music
to somewhere 你回到的1960
to somewhere 是否一樣熟悉 to somewhere, you go back to 1960, to somewhere, is it as familiar?

也許
有一天我們會再見 認不出來你會是誰 perhaps one day we’ll meet again, won’t recognize who you are
想要說的也忘記了 能不能約在下次見面 forgot the things we wanted to say, would we be able to meet again
有一天我能回想起 原來的你是什麼模樣
我知道你不回來 one day I’ll remember, how you used to look, and how you’ll never come back
剩下的告別我會明白 What’s left is just goodbye

其實我也想要跟你 Actually I want to go together with you
回到你的一九六〇 Back to your 1960
其實我也想要跟你 Actually I want to go together with you
回到你的一九六〇 Back to your 1960

Listen/purchase: My Wish Is Your Command Feat. Weish by Odradek & Sphaeras Feat. Weish

A mathrock-prog-metal summit on the joint release Sun Seeker by Brazil’s Odradek and Sphaeras from Singapore.    My Wish Is Your Command is a “Collaborations track featuring Fabiano & Caio of Odradek, Axel of Sphaeras and Weish of .Gif / Sub:Shaman.”

The entire album is quite insane, a must-listen for fans of math rock!  If I’m reading the credits correctly, Odradek have 3 songs (3 with vocals, one of which is in Engish), Sphaeras have 2 songs plus a collaboration with the Singapore band Two Seas.  The title track and My Wish Is Your Command feature Fabiano & Caio of Odradek and (bassist) Axel of Sphaeras.    

Weish is absolutely perfect for this crazy, haunting material. “one of the most insane collaborations i’ve ever done… recording vocals on a track that (literally) summoned the supernatural. still makes my hair stand listening to it…

The album comes out Monday, listen/purchase at bandcamp.

(Linying)

Just read that Linying is going to be at Summer Sonic in Tokyo next month, you can read a short interview with her over at BandwagonSG.

Her ep (Paris 12) is coming out in September.  The song Alpine may be one we have posted before, but I think it was taken down at some point.  – Anyway, it’s back up today, so take advantage and hear this glorious ethereal music while you can!   =D

p.s. Linying has a few things on her tumblr, including lyrics for Alpine and a couple of other songs.

(M A N D A R K)

Ambient track from Mandark Ravel.  I stumbled upon her earlier this year through some connections to other TW musicians. She’s composed some jazz tunes as well, played by 顧上揚 Shang-Yang Gu-piano, 劉育嘉 Jack Liu-bass, 陳信介 Jimmy Chen-drums:

She’s also a member of I Mean Us, a quintet that formed at the end of 2015.  They do shoegaze-noisy dreampop style, with male & female vocals. Check out one of their demos:
