Music Column あらかじめ決められた恋人たちへ『Back』Music Column To predetermined lovers 『Back』
February 7, 2020
詩的なバンド名、“あらかじめ決められた恋人たちへ”。略称“あら恋”、インストゥルメンタルバンドです。 『Back』という曲でこのバンドを知ったのですが、第一の印象はノスタルジック。鍵盤ハーモニカや子供のコーラスがなつかし …
The poetic band name, “To predetermined lovers”. It is an instrumental band, which is abbreviated as “Arakoi”.
I knew this band from the song “Back”, but the first impression was nostalgic. The keyboard harmonica and the chorus of the child will come from within, whether it is nostalgia or nostalgia. The excitement from the middle of the stage is dramatic and it is like watching a movie.
When I was thinking about taking it up in a column, I realized that I had about three albums, but I didn’t know anything about them. Formed in 1997, it was a unit (it was written as a band) that has been active for over 20 years. I want to go to the live one day!

今回はCSSというバンドをご紹介します。 CSS（シー・エス・エス）=Cansei de Ser Sexy（カンセイ・ジ・セール・セクシー）、ブラジルのバンドです。「セクシーで居ることに飽きた」というビヨンセの発言をポル …
This time we will introduce a band called CSS.
CSS (Canada de Ser Sexy), a Brazilian band. Beyoncé’s remark that “I’m tired of being sexy” has been changed to Portuguese and given the band name.
I met this band at the opening act of an overseas band I went to see a dozen years ago. I saw it without knowing it at all, but I thought what kind of thing started when the girl’s vocal came out in a flashy leotard ⁈, but psychedelic + disco + punk + rock, a song filled with various elements It was a fun live. The audience was excited and I enjoyed the opening act. The vocal Lovefoxxx was messy and cute.
I’m also looking forward to the chance of suddenly meeting a favorite band at a live concert. It’s fun to go to festivals. Can I go this year?

I hope you can read this column at the beginning of 2020. Thank you.
It’s the New Year holidays, so I’d like to talk about a band that feels fun.
OK GO, American music videos are always fun bands. About 10 years ago when YouTube began to become popular, it became famous for its low budget, creative MV using room runners. I’m looking forward to MV every time.
Most of the songs are bright because the MV is a human-powered (not using CG) funny idea. I think it’s a band that is more focused, but fun is the win. I want to see more! I recommend visiting their YouTube channel. There’s a giant Pythagora switch, weightlessness, trick art anything.
Attached below is a one-shot MV shot in Japan using a drone. Perfume is also out.

やっと冬な気候になってきましたね。と思って今回は冬に聴くのがいいかなと思ったBECKのアルバム『Morning Phase』を取り上げます。 BECKはアルバムごとに作風が変わるフォーク、ロック、ヒップホップ、ブルース何 …
At last, the weather has become winter. So, this time, I will take up BECK’s album “Morning Phase”, which I thought it would be good to listen to in winter.
BECK is a folk, rock, hip-hop, and blues artist whose style changes from album to album, but this album is more of a folk type, with a relaxing atmosphere from the beginning to the end and a quiet winter vacation as the title says. I think of the morning of the day. I always flutter in the morning and sleep until near noon, so I think of an imaginary ideal morning scenery… (laughs)
It’s a 2014 album, but after a while since I started listening, I realized that it would be nice to revisit the song or album that I want to listen to when I feel like this.

N.Y、ブルックリンのバンドです。 2005年のデビューアルバム、セルフタイトルの「Clap Your Hands Say Yeah」 が好きなのですが、ボーカルのヘロヘロな気が抜けたような歌い方が独特で面白いです。曲は …
It is a band from NY, Brooklyn.
I like my debut album in 2005, the self-titled “Clap Your Hands Say Yeah”, but the singing that makes the vocals fluffy is unique and interesting. The music is kindly made with noise, has a sound like a film, and is warm with a handicraft feel.
I would like you to listen to it through the album, but it will feel like Shiume that it is not at room temperature and is not raised too much.

コラム第二回目です。 音楽をiPodで聴くようになってから（今はiPhone)、アルバム単位で曲を聴くことが少なくなってきてしまいました。紹介するのはアルバムだったり曲単体だったりバラバラになりそうです。 …
This is the second column.
Since I started listening to music on my iPod (now iPhone), I’ve rarely listened to songs by album. It’s likely that the albums and songs will be disjointed.
King Nu. It’s the hottest band in my life right now, but it’s a band that’s skyrocketing.
I’m not very familiar with the clear genre of music or how to make it, but the impression changes from song to song regardless of the genre separation. The voices of the two vocals are the exact opposite of each other, and I think their usage is exquisite. I want to listen when I want to increase the tension.
“White day” It’s a quiet beginning, but it’s a song with intense emotions. The PV is also pure and cool only when playing in a wide space in monochrome.

Nice to meet you! I’m the atelier staff who took charge of this corner.
I haven’t written much about it, but I would like to introduce my favorite music. Thank you for your kindness.
He is an artist who makes music from musical instruments to various toys as playing tools. There are many songs that I feel like ＞.
The lyrics are like reading a strange picture book, which seems to be meaningless.
I recommend the album called “EXIT”, and it makes me feel a little better if I play this album on a holiday with plenty of time and do some housework while riding lightly (laughs).
