用了Spotify後,我要買哪些唱片呢?

用Spotify聽歌已成習慣。雖然心知這樣做在道德上是說不過去的(Spotify分給音樂人們的錢不合理地少),我們理應杯葛Spotify才對,但我沒有這樣做。因為實在太方便,而且其音樂庫藏量都算非常廣了,很多知名度低的獨立音樂人、或古老年代的一些冷門樂隊作品,往往都在Spotify找得到,正能滿足我這種對各色各樣音樂都懷有好奇心的樂迷。只要每月給50元不到的費用,就能享有這種既方便又快捷的音樂服務,樂迷們實難抗拒這種大飽耳福的機會。想到老一輩的樂迷常說,從前的人聽音樂比較認真和深入,因為音樂得來不易,言下之意是感嘆慣於下載音檔的新一代只懂速食不懂珍惜。我想,Spotify年代的出現,何止是速食,簡直係即食,還要是隨時隨地的那種。就是因方便到這個地步,於是乎,我們發現,Spotify不僅受年輕樂迷歡迎,就連不少家藏唱片數以千計的「舊派」樂迷,都要成為Spotify的常客了。

雖然如此,寫這篇文的目的並不是要為自己濫用Spotify開脫,而是要提自己:「要買返多少啦!」這一年來從Spotify中聽了一大堆,覺得好的有一堆,喜歡的又有一堆,真要把這些唱片的實體都帶回家的話,起碼都有數十隻,先不講錢,如此買法對於家中還有至少數十隻CD未開苞的我,是不設實際的。所以要嚴選。以下是「入選名單」,排名不分先後。每一張我都會略作介紹。

1)  Sunset Rubdown – Shut Up I Am Dreaming (2006)

還是頭一遭聽這支來自加拿大Montreal的樂團的音樂。這張唱片奏著繽紛眴麗的indie rock,曲子不長但用上很多樂器,編曲別具氣勢,聽來會不自覺聯想起Arcade Fire和Broken Social Scene這些氣派壯闊的獨立大團…… 慢著 ── 這兩支不都是來自加拿大的嗎?加拿大樂團都擅於豐盛的編曲嗎?

試聽: (超喜歡那種詭秘的氣氛)

2) Seefeel – Quique (1993) 337 more words
