简介

Carsick Cars第三张专辑《3》将于2014年2月28日由兵马司唱片正式发行,将于2月25日提前在网络进行全碟首发。《3》是乐队成立9年来,继2007年发行的的同名专辑《Carsick Cars》、2009年发行的《You Can Listen You Can Talk》后的最新力作。 简单的阿拉伯数字“3”,不仅是字面上的简洁明快,对于Carsick Cars来说 ,选用“3”作为唱片的标题,也是最合适的表达:由3个人组成的乐队于3月份录制的第3张全长录音室作品。 这支被誉为中国最好的噪音/实验摇滚乐队在传统摇滚三大件所能创造的的声音质地和结构上继续探索不同的可能性。时而咆哮如火焰,时而透澈如水晶的吉他于粗砺中不失优美,秉承极简点线的贝斯所创造的低音饱满富有活力,热烈绵密的镲与坚实的鼓点铺垫出风格强烈的节奏组,三件乐器的搭配让那些听上去顺耳的音调与他们先锋的本色保持着高度的一致。在核心思想上,《3》也延续乐队一贯的作风,用敏锐的视角观察社会,于荒谬的现实中呼喊自我觉醒,如专辑中《围城》这首歌里写的,“你在鼓楼地铁里/看着人潮向黑暗中驶去/而你决定要走上去/呼吸这空气便可得到你”,以及《野草》的歌词所表达的“当野草被智者们点燃/勇敢的人便跟随着火焰/世界不再是你的想象/不是支离破碎的幻想”。 《3》在纽约录制完成,由两位极具个人风格的乐队核心人物——Spacemen 3乐队的吉他&键盘手Peter Kember (Sonic Boom)和The Clean乐队的鼓手Hamish Kilgour共同制作。主视觉艺术则出自青年艺术家郭鸿蔚之手,整合设计依旧由嘎调乐队的詹盼操刀,两队艺术家的合作对撞也将专辑的感官维度扩展至视觉层面。 新专辑首发系列演出第一场将于2月28日在北京愚公移山举行,兵马司旗下新锐迷幻乐队Chui Wan将作为嘉宾乐队。从3月份开始,Carsick Cars久违的全国及北美洲大规模巡演也将拉开大幕, Longer version Carsick Cars released their first album in 2007. Produced by Yang Haisong, whose band P.K.14 has been the most influential band for the generation of Chinese musicians who followed, almost overnight the wildly energetic self-titled album became the most celebrated representative of the young Beijing musicians and bands who, emerging mainly from Beijing’s most famous music club, D-22, exploded onto the scene in 2005. Carsick Cars was one of the leaders of this of bands who, joining together under the banner of “No Beijing”, brought a level of self-confidence, aggressive experimentation, and youthful determination which catapulted the Beijing new music scene into Asia’s most important and one of the best in the world. Carsick Cars’ performances during that time are remembered today for the excitement and sense of possibility they brought, and the most famous song from the album, “Zhongnanhai”, has become the anthem of the Beijing underground. To this day it is the most copied song among hopeful young Chinese musicians. Two years later the band released their second album, the brooding, discordant and much darker You Can Listen, You Can Talk, produced by legendary New York musician and producer Wharton Tiers. The album sold poorly at first, surprising an audience that expected the brilliant youthful gyrations that characterized their first album. Over time, however, as audiences became more familiar with the growing maturity of the band, interest in the second album surged and today it sells almost as well as the first and has probably had a greater influence on younger Chinese musicians. With all three members of the band involved in extensive touring and several side projects, it has been a long wait for the third album, but in April 2013 the band went to New York to work with Spacemen 3’s Sonic Boom and The Clean’s Hamish Kilgour to produce 3, whose official release is planned for February 28. Once again the album is going to surprise the many Chinese and foreign fans of Carsick Cars, not least because of the beautiful covert art designed by well-known Beijing/California artist (and poker buddy) Guo Hongwei. For the new album, songwriter Shouwang has jettisoned the hard riffs of his earlier style to create sophisticated, shimmering songs, still based on his trademark drones and deceptive rhythms, and showcasing more than ever the extraordinary guitar playing that has characterized all his music. Like both of his previous albums, the music rests on Shouwang’s intense, pop-inflected song melodies, which he and bassist He Fan and drummer Sun Heting, both of whom joined the band in 2011, tear apart in music that veers from repetitive, and intricate drones to complex mood shifts. An early online song released from the album shot almost immediately to #1 on Douban, the leading Chinese online site for music, and it is pretty clear that this album, probably the most sophisticated the band has yet put out, will also be the most accessible and loved of their work to date. With each album showing a different level of maturity and skill, 3 is almost certain to be remembered as one of the most important Chinese recordings of this decade and will point to the new directions and further rapid development of China’s most influential underground band. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Shorter version Five years after the release of their much-acclaimed second album, You Can Listen, You Can Talk, and seven years after they burst onto the scene with their iconic self-titled debut, Carsick Cars is finally releasing their third album, 3.
