专辑介绍:

God is an astronaut是一支来自爱尔兰首都都柏林的后摇团体,风格是吉他为主的器乐后摇。《Fragile》一段轻柔的吉他开篇,仿佛来自遥远的外层空间一样空灵飘渺,但要是你认为接下来是更加延长的继续下去的话就错了,歌曲进行到一半的时候,吉他开始更有节奏的轰鸣,变的更加饱满更有力量。《All Is Violent All Is Bright》带我们进入另一个魔幻的世界,行至3分钟的时候,吉他构建的空间氛围感越来越强烈,形成一种压迫感,却在你变的狂躁不安之前噶然而止。奇怪的是,我们没有感到不适,反而觉得很爽。第三首有一个很好听的名字《Forever Lost》,不同于其它歌曲的是,用钢琴弹奏取代了吉他而作为引子,显得特别干净。整张唱片的旋律都漂亮的很,很容易被记住,但每首歌呈现给我们的世界是不同的。when everything dies!你会联想到什么?末世的荒凉,还是万物待生的希望?专辑的最后一首歌《When Everything Dies》却奇妙的将两种感觉带到你面前。

God is An Astronaut的配器虽然遵循英式摇滚的传统,但还是充满了古老冲动与激情。God is Astronaut这支柏林的乐队是2002年由两兄弟Niels 和Torsten还有他们的朋友Lloyd三人行而成的。他们的音乐清澈而具有质感,旋律优美却多愁善感,并且运用大量美妙的电子声效。2002年成立,2003年3月在他们自己成立的厂牌Revive Records发表了第一张专辑《The End of the Beginning》。2005.2第二张专辑《All is Violent,All is Bright》依然在Revive Records下发表。God is An Astronaut在采访中形容他们的音乐是“Electronic,chill out synthisised rock ”,这是由于他们受主流摇滚的影响同时又喜欢The Chemical Brothers(著名Synth pop乐队),而将两者合而为一的产物。[来自百度百科]

Don't you love it when your most anticipated release of the year lives up to your expectations. Undeniably my favorite band at the moment has pulled off a stellar release that shows a maturing in their sound. That band is God is an Astronaut. This albums is nine tracks of perfection and will most certainly be a contender for my top 10 picks of year unless something completely miraculous happens. Their sound is undeniable, but on Far From Refuge, they have taking that sound to a new emotive level. The compositions are intricate and well thought out with moments that explode into quietness. Torsten, Neil and Lloyd are a force to be reaconed with as their brand of post-rock screams into your speakers.

The album begins with the pulsing beat of Radau. Drums thump and set the tone for the immensity of the album. High hat joins in as spacey keys and guitars fill in the cracks between the pulse. A few moments later, the guitars build and the bass throttles, pushing the rest of the band forward. Radau has a sense of immediacy and desperation. The bass work is by no means mindless on this album, but it mirrors the guitar sounds while keeping the glue necessary between drum and guitar. These Irishmen know what they are doing and their compositions just float on endless keys of anxious moments. A six minute tour de force, Radau opens this disc with high energy and aggressive style. Far From Refuge is the title track and falls in after the album's pounding beginning. A bed of ambient keys floats across the speakers as drums come in to set the pace. This is a nice change of pace and really sets a foil to the first track. The guitar is glimmering and shimmers nicely on top of the careful bass and drums. The mood is somber and more melancholy than the first track, with fluted keys and warbling melodies. The shimmery ambiance eventually takes over as the languid pace plods along at perfect timing. The tumult grows dim and then bursts into loud bass and soaring guitars. This is fades with vibrations and shimmers into the next track called Sunrise in Aries. This track begins with a mid-tempo drum beat, warbly guitar and light keys. The movements in this piece are peaceful and the volume moves up and down to give flavor to the moment. Subtle in execution, Sunrise in Aries delivers a ray of hope in the midst of the Refuge which is lacking.

Grace Descending begins with bright piano in a minor key. The drums play a marching beat on the snare while the bass drum thumps to keep time. The bass glues the pieces together as the piano sings its melancholy tune. The guitar brings in variations on the piano's theme and fills out the voids in the musics cracks. The keys play with decending lines as "grace" falls upon the listener as the drums, bass and guitar explode to provide a contrast with the even handed ivorys. This fades into an ominous oblivion and opens into New Years End which begins with just bass and shimmering guitar in the background. A guitar line plays the melody and the drums slowly work their way into the mix. Eventually, all the pieces come together into perfect composition with keys laying another cushion for all the instruments. Guitar parts become more complex and abundant as the tune goes on, but the subtle quietness of this tune is not lost on the build. The crescendo is immense and breathtaking as guitars blend into one another, creating a wall of sound that does not lose the melody.

Darkfall begins with ambient keys and what sounds like work on a cello. As its title indicates, there is a dark feel to the beginning, but it's not an altogether hopeless darkness. This is a major aspect of GIAA's compositions that I appreciate: they are never so desponant in the compositions not to express some hope. As the hum of underlying keys continues, keys play and float along the stream of ambient air. Tempus Horizon connects to what is prior by beginning with ambient keys, light high-hat, and glittering guitar. The tension built by the softer tune prepares the listener for the coming storm as the band builds and prepares for more explosive moments. The volume eventually erupts as the pace remains steady and still. A slow tempo song, GIAA does not rush and is carefully patient in their compositions. It's as if they are trying to move the listener along at a pace that is emotively humane. As the song continues, the louder moments come less sporadically and begin to escalate in volume. This leads into the ominous beginnings of Lateral Noise. Deep and dark with a creepy vibe, this one starts out with rumbles galore. Then, as the track progresses, light sounding, sparkling keys come in and are drowned out again by fuzz and rumbles. This ominous track sets up the listener for the final track on the disc and makes for a dramatic, episodic introduction to the end. Walls of fuzzy guitar lift into the speakers, explode and dissapear as Beyond the Dying Light soars with spacey guitars and a slow but steady entrance. The track is bright and full of hope as the keys glimmer with guitar, bass, and drums moving at a medium tempo. Guitars build a wall and GIAA's signature sound blasts through the speakers like rays of hope. This track is a perfect finish to an emotive journal through musical perfection.

If it's not obvious, I highly recommend GIAA's new disc. Far From Refuge is anything but a cliche post-rock album. Rather, it is a masterpiece that finds the band's sound maturing. The compositions are intricate yet careful and the album as a whole is fluid and the tracks perfectly selected and ordered. Go buy it now and, if you haven't yet, the rest of their catalog as well.
