原文在此
中英對照版 翻譯 By 金毛
If you're fed up with local acts that lamely attempt to sound like they come from a North American ghetto, then Kou Chou-ching's (拷秋勤) debut album is worth a listen. 如果你受夠了國內許多裝模作樣使自己看起來像是來自美國街頭的饒 舌歌手,那麼拷秋勤的首張專輯絕對合你的胃口。
Aptly titled Taiwan Traditional Music Style (復刻), the album takes listeners on an interesting journey through Taiwan's traditional music scene via scratch and rap. 適當的專輯標題--台灣傳統音樂"復刻",這張專輯透過刷碟和饒舌的方 式來帶領著聽眾做一趟台灣傳統音樂的旅程。
If it sounds a bit odd then you'd be right as the material is so far removed from any and all other types of localized rap that it actually takes some getting used to. 如果你聽起來覺得有點怪的話,那你就對了,因為這種音樂不像任何 你所聽過的饒舌,可能需要花一點時間來適應。
Listen to it once and you'll hate it, give it another listen after you've had time to digest what you heard the first time around, however, and you'll be pleasantly surprised. 聽第一次,也許你會覺得難聽;但再聽一次,你如果可以仔細消化第一 次所聽的東西的話,那麼,你就會很驚訝你所得到的收獲。
Kou Chou Ching employs a host of earthy local musical styles, such as nakashi, classical opera and temple music, as well as recording several of the tracks in a gnarly KTV manner. 拷秋勤結合了許多民間的樂風,如那卡西、歌仔戲和宗教音樂,有幾軌 甚至刻意以粗糙的KTV方式來做錄音。
Vocally the combo waxes lyrical, albeit it in a tongue-in-cheek manner, about everything from noodles to red envelopes. 而在歌詞上,他們從飲食文化到紅包等毫不諱言的談論一切。
Sure, not all the tunes are musically pleasing, especially when the group dabbles with instrumentation more commonly associated with funerals, but if your eardrums can withstand the nanguan and cringingly kitsch call-in KTV radio moments then it's well worth it. 當然,並不是所有的曲子都是容易入耳的,特別是一些刻意使用在南北管 上使用的樂器來演奏的曲子,不過,如果你的耳朵能承受像是南北管和一 些粗糙的Call In 廣播KTV的話,那麼這張專輯就是非常值得你去考慮的。
