Imala sam najbolju namjeru prekinuti izbivanjem samonametnuti bložni celibat gejzirski moćnim izbojem mrežne metaproze koja će istodobno biti popularnija od pornouratka Dragana D. Dabića, gluplja od glupih dočeka u kojima glupane dočekuju još veći glupani, ispraznija i lišenija svake natruhe emotivnosti nego... inače, ali donekle me koči kronična potreba za predanim neradom pa ću samo popisati albume koji su dosad sound-tračili i tratili moje ljeto ljubavi 2008.

Trend povratka klasičnog rocka, fričnog folka i južnjačke gotike pripisujem
mudroj politici Ive Sanadera. Ne ide to samo od sebe i po volji povijesne nužnosti, kao što bi neki željeli da mislimo, a otvoreno ću reći da pod "neki" mislim "pojedinci".


Bodies of Water:
A Certain Feeling


(...) for those with a fondness for fine-tuned fusions of prog-rock, metal and choral music, multi-part arrangements, tempo and key changes, and '70s swinger 'staches, that certain titular feeling will be one of elation.

(slantmagazine.com)

Festival:
Come, Arrow, Come


Tribal drone, backwoods spiritual, basement psychedelia, hilltop roots romp -whatever element they touch upon filters through the genetics of sisterly song and descends on eager ears like a misty rain.

(amazon.com)


Forward, Russia!

Life Processes

Gorgeous, thoughtful, and musically brilliant, the album runs like a concept album about life experiences should...beginning, middle, end; all equally interesting and exciting.

(Urb)

The Hold Steady:

Stay Positive


(...) thick, humid arena rock, a high-pressure system of cresting guitars and pianos that injects these dramas with tension and embraces all their contradictions and ambiguities.

(Los Angeles Times)

Teddy Thompson:

A Piece of What You Need


The son of folk-rock notables Richard and Linda Thompson urbanely sings and writes about suicide, dissipation, alcoholism, drugs, and even love and happiness with verve and wit. He knows how to capture the mood with a simple phrase, or how to twist a line to reveal a hidden meaning.

(PopMatters)

Black Kids:

Partie Traumatic

Almost everything here sounds like a hit waiting to happen, equipped with a tune strong enough to be heard above the hype--or the hype about the hype or the people complaining about the hype about the hype--and memorable enough to make the idea that Black Kids will be forgotten by Christmas seem a highly unlikely suggestion.

(Guardian)

Errors:

It's Not Something But It Is Like Whatever


Confident in their ability to make music chaotic, graceful, and danceable in equal measures, confident enough to clip the corners of what other outfits are doing without sounding derivative or even unoriginal, and, no doubt, confident they’ve just made a damn fine debut album.

(PopMatters)

The Duke Spirit:
Neptune

It’s tighter, and incredibly, more intimate and intense than the first, this is a band that functions as a whole, not merely a threadbare net of musicians straining to support the singer.

(Prefix Magazine)

Eleanoora Rosenholm:
Vainajan Muotokuva


Hidden beneath blurts of analogue synthesizer and crisp electronic rhythms are the skeletons of long forgotten love-songs, folk music from another time, early 80s ballads - the music that brings nostalgia, romance and passion no matter what time of day it is.

(boomkat.com)
Pyramids:
Pyramids


Recommended if you like taking some Valium and imagining what it would sound like if Al Jourgensen from Ministry programmed drums for a project between Johnny Greenwood from Radiohead and Jim James from My Morning Jacket that you were hearing from a different room with cotton in your ears.

(absolutepunk.net)

Gregor Samsa:

Rest

The wonder of Rest is in the spaces in between notes, the languorous quality of the songs, the confidence in allowing the listener to stretch out and take it all in, and the dual vocal whisperings of its leaders.

(treblezine.com)

Lumerians:

Lumerians


Their sound is hypnotic, meandering, charged and yet contemplative; distorted washes of synth, supernal organ and vibraphone brushed across a cinematic sky of deep blue. Lumerians dispense with guitars, percolating their songs with occasional bursts of percussive thunder and vocals.

Otkad su istraživački novinari provalili u najnoviji roman s ključem Magnum koji je zapravo o Thompsonu, moj mobitel ne prestaje zvoniti. Slučajnost, koincidencija ili stečaj okolnosti?1

Ali tko ne bi pomislio isto nakon što u uglednim2 dnevnim novinama pročita da je:

a) diplomirana ekonomistica,

b) "ljubiteljica pisane riječi koja nosi poruku",

c) iz Ljubuškog

č) pod pseudonimom

ć) Idana Ivanova

d) objavila

dž) svoj roman prvijenac

đ) koji aludira na život i karijeru poznatoga hrvatskog pjevača Marka Perkovića Thompsona,

e) obiluje intrigama,

f) nizom citata iz Biblije

g) "s dosta mističnih elemenata"

h) "pa će zasigurno odjeknuti među poklonicima literature kao što je Da Vincijev kod Dana Browna".


Kad ćovijek vidi takav niz čimbenika od kojih se svaki može primijeniti na nekoga koga poznaje, jasno je da može doći do unutarnje pomutnje, gubitka vrijednosti i rasula.

Nije prvi put da ljudi nešto pomisle, a da poslije ispadne da nije baš tako. Sjetimo se samo Milli Vanilli, Rocka Hudsona ili onoga filma kad Bruce Willis tek na kraju shvati da vidi mrtve ljude jer ga Bog kažnjava zbog buduće legalizacije homoseksualnih brakova u Kaliforniji.

Ili čak iz osobnog iskustva: u srednjoškolskom godišnjaku izglasali su me za "onu koja će prva upotrijebiti riječ kagemuša u rečenici", a tek sam to sad učinila.


Iako sam i ja "ljubiteljica pisane riječi koja nosi poruku"3, u mome bi romanu s ključem o Thompsonu bilo manje mističnih, a više hermeneutičkih elemenata, manje Međugorja i privjesaka sv. Benedikta, a više aluzija na erektilne disfunkcije i veličanja4 Milana Bandića.

____________

1 - da
2 - ne
3 - npr. "ručak ti je u mikrovalnoj"
4 - jače nego ono kad se propne na prste dok ga slikaju
