SUNDAYSUBLIME: Red House Painters - Mistress

1993 erschien das zweite Album der kalifornischen Band Red House Painters, deren melancholischer bis tieftrauriger Sound sich irgendwo zwischen Slowcore, Folk und Dreampop bewegt: Auf dem Zweitling namens "Rollercoaster" finden sich der Song "Mistress" wieder, der auch schöne shoegazige Elemente aufweist und einen mit seinen mysteriösen Textzeilen in den Bann zieht.

Das Cover stammt vom Ende 2019 verstorbenen genialen 4AD-Designer Vaughan Oliver (Er gestaltete auch Albencover für Pixies, Lush, Cocteau Twins u.v.a.) und zeigt in Sepia-Tönen den Rollercoaster auf Coney Island, ein Ort, der so surreal schön ist wie die Musik der Red House Painters, die sich 2001 auflösten.





The light color in the room
The sunshine seeping in
Doesn't mix with the black of
Death's angel looming in
I've had enough of the
Brutal beatings and name callings
To lose me to this bed
Bruised internally, eternally
Your praise little gifts you spent your money
And stuffed me with
Didn't amount to anything
The attention I need is much more serious
A kind of weight you couldn't lift
Even if your cheap career depended on it
I need someone much more mysterious
To be my, to be my miss
To be my mistress
To be my, to be my miss
To be my mistress
To be my, to be my miss
To be my mistress
To be my, to be my miss
To be my mistress

SUNDAYSUBLIME: Julee Cruise - It's The End Of The World As We Know It

Julee Cruise kennt man als geheimnisvolle Chanteuse aus der Twin-Peaks-Serie und dem dazu gehörigen ätherisch hypnotischen Soundtrack. Und über diese grandiose Serie gibt es auch einen sanften Brückenschlag zum Shoegaze hin, denn ursprünglich sollte eigentlich die Cocteau Twins-Sängerin Elizabeth Fraser Lieder wie "Falling" oder "Floating" singen, wenn es nach David Lynch gegangen wäre. Doch es kam anders und Cruise hat mit ihrer Interpretation traumwandlerisch sicher ins Schwarze getroffen.
Sie hat darüber hinaus auch sehr viele grandiose Cover zu bieten, die ebenfalls in ihrem typischen traumwandlerischen Stil daher kommen wie zum Beispiel "If The Kids Are United", ursprünglich von den Punks Sham 69 oder aber diese zurückgenommene und deshalb umso gespenstischere Version des R.E.M.-Tracks "It's The End Of The World As We Know It". Zu finden ist er auf der "Winter Chill"-Compilation aus dem Jahr 2002.


"That's great, it starts with an earthquake
Birds and snakes, and aeroplanes
And Lenny Bruce is not afraid
Eye of a hurricane, listen to yourself churn
World serves its own needs
Don't mis-serve your own needs
Speed it up a notch, speed, grunt, no, strength
The ladder starts to clatter
With a fear of height, down, height
Wire in a fire, represent the seven games
And a government for hire and a combat site
Left her, wasn't coming in a hurry
With the Furies breathing down your neck
Team by team, reporters baffled, trumped, tethered, cropped
Look at that low plane, fine, then
Uh oh, overflow, population, common group
But it'll do, save yourself, serve yourself
World serves its own needs, listen to your heart bleed
Tell me with the Rapture and the reverent in the right, right
You vitriolic, patriotic, slam fight, bright light
Feeling pretty psyched
It's the end of the world as we know it
It's the end of the world as we know it
It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine
Six o'clock, T.V. hour, don't get caught in foreign tower
Slash and burn, return, listen to yourself churn
Lock him in uniform, book burning, bloodletting
Every motive escalate, automotive incinerate
Light a candle, light a motive, step down, step down
Watch your heel crush, crush, uh oh
This means no fear, cavalier, renegade and steering clear
A tournament, a tournament, a tournament of lies
Offer me solutions, offer me alternatives and I decline
It's the end of the world as we know it (I had some time alone)
It's the end of the world as we know it (I had some time alone)
It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine (time I had some time alone)
I feel fine (I feel fine)
It's the end of the world as we know it (time I had some time alone)
It's the end of the world as we know it (time I had some time alone)
It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine (time I had some time alone)
The other night I drifted nice continental drift divide
Mountains sit in a line, Leonard Bernstein
Leonid Brezhnev, Lenny Bruce and Lester Bangs
Birthday party, cheesecake, jellybean, boom
You symbiotic, patriotic, slam but neck, right, right
It's the end of the world as we know it (time I had some time alone)
It's the end of the world as we know it (time I had some time alone)
It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine (time I had some time alone)
It's the end of the world as we know it
It's the end of the world as we know it
It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine (time I had some time alone)
It's the end of the world as we know it (time I had some time alone)
It's the end of the world as we know it (time I had some time alone)
It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine (time I had some time alone)
It's the end of the world as we know it (time I had some time alone)
It's the end of the world as we know it (time I had some time alone)
It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine (time I had some time alone)"

SUNDAYSUBLIME: Clannad - Robin (The Hooded Man)

Die irische Folk-New-Age-Band Clannad hat diesen Song 1984 herausgebracht und er stammt aus dem Album "Legend", das zugleich der Soundtrack zu der Serie "Robin Of Sherwood" war. Der immer noch ziemlich mysteriös und dreampoppige klingende Song kam auch auf einer 7''-Vinyl-Single heraus, auf der man die ebenso bezaubernden Lieder "Now Is Here" und "Herne" (eine Figur aus der englischen Folklore, von dem Robin, der "Behütete" in der Serie seinen Namen erhält) aus finden kann, die mit dreckigem und authentischem Setting wohl am besten den Robin-Hood-Mythos einfängt. "Robin (The Hooded Man)" verströmt seine ganz besondere Atmosphäre dank des typischen Clannad-Zusammenspiels aus Synthiesounds, Harfenkängen und mehrstimmigem Gesang, der eigentlich nur diese zwei Zeilen beinhaltet:

"Robin
The Hooded Man
Robin
The Hooded Man"

THE UNDERGROUND YOUTH

Der Name klingt nach einer Vermählung von The Velvet Underground und Sonic Youth und ganz so falsch ist dieses Bild nicht: Denn auf der Hochzeitsparty wird zu psychedelischem Post-Punk sowie shoegazigem Garage-Sound mit viel viel Nebel und Strobo getanzt.

Die inspirativen musikalischen Gäste von The Underground Youth lauten derweilen: Joy Division, The Cure, The Jesus And Mary Chain.  Längst haben sich The Underground Youth vom Geheimtipp losgespielt und ihre Live-Shows gelten bereits als legendär: Leidenschaft, Liebe und ein hypnotischer Sog erwartet Euch!
