Luminous Orange "Soar, Kiss The Moon" 2014 Japan Post Rock,Indie Pop Rock

 

Luminous Orange "Soar, Kiss The Moon" 2014 Japan Post Rock,Indie Pop Rock


This is the first album in about 4 years for Luminous Orange, who is active as a solo project by Rie Takeuchi. This is a self-produced album in which Takeuchi was in charge of writing, composing, arranging, guitar, keyboard, programming, percussion, etc. You can enjoy the sounds of various musical instruments and exquisite ensembles over a total of 10 songs. The album jacket artwork was also done by Takeuchi himself. The album has been released on her own label, Parallelogram.....~



Luminous Orange's long career of 22 years has come to an end in his search for himself. Starting with Rie Takeuchi's self-expression method from paintings and manga to music, Luminous = Rie Takeuchi's solo unit form, promotion, distribution and sales to WEB-based independent production, and musicality-called "Shoegazer" The image that was generally established was so narrow that it changed.

For example, in this work, the bossa nova approach consisting of the rim shot of "Das Experiment" and "Tiger lily Mixolydian" featuring a vocoder voice like DE DE MOUSE and an inexhaustible gut guitar are one of the changes, but the most. The change is in the cooperation of the Yoshida Yohei group (hereinafter referred to as YYG). The classical and transparent sound produced by flute, saxophone and bassoon evoked the elements of classical and jazz that were hidden as the roots of Luminous, both physically and mentally.

In addition, there are only two bands that share beautiful chorus work with female voices, and the appeal of chorus is accelerating. In particular, "Sore, Soar, Soir", which starts with the interaction of the instruments mentioned above and develops a chorus of 3 notes x 4 bars as the main phrase, in this work, before the Beatles such as The Chordettes and The Ronettes You can feel the focus on the chorus that reminds you. This is another attraction that has been hidden and hidden, and is probably the result of the gradual fruiting of his career.

After all, this work may be a work in which Luminous, who has continued his activities with "self-power" that does not rely on the ease of his own activities and the power of others, greatly welcomed others in terms of music. A new sensation work that harmonizes YYG and musicality and goes through noisy layers. However, this work should not feel like a true Luminous Orange, which is the end of my search......~


1st song Das Experiment
I wanted to make a cool rock song with a minor tone, innocence, and space with an acoustic instrument. 4/4 beat, song part has 3/4 drum accent, 5 bars, melody is 4 and a half beats. I asked Junpei-san, who is good at tricky rhythms, to play the drums.
The piano and Mr. Kawase's wood bass are pointillistic, and E-Bow draws lines with a charcoal pencil, just like sweeping the wind instruments of the Yoshida Yohei group with a brush. It became a tense track.

2nd song Little Girl, Dancing
Early 90's Manchester 24 Hour Party People Recalling the atmosphere.
Luminous orange with 5/4 beat, disturbing three-voice chorus & wind instrument, and mode scale , with melody, guitar, and percussion inserted and removed to repeat the rhythm and chords of the basic two measures in a club music-like manner. In the formula.
The undulating bass part was made with the image of "Jaco Pasturias in Salford". (Salford is the name of Manchester and is also the birthplace of Happy Mondays).

3rd song Nightwalking
Downbeat with fuzz and vibrato, sudden 5/4 "Third Stone From The Sun" feeling. A really rock song that develops forcibly. Nishiura-kun's crisp drums and Kono-kun's elastic bass.
Until now, I haven't used fuzz because I'm not good at harmony, but I feel that its true value is demonstrated in liner songs where the lines are intertwined.

The 4th song, Sore, Soar, Soir, which is heavily used (but difficult to control)
, has a trampoline on the bottom-rich drums with 3/4 time signature, and a chorus of harsh harmony walks on a tightrope. The oboe and flute dance lightly like a court aristocrat with a hairstyle like a pastry, and the light cavalry of the saxophone drive them away. It's pop and light, but it's a 6-minute big song.
It is very radiant that the chorus part of "Sifado" will be released slowly after the verse continues to have a painful feeling of semitone progression.

Song 5 Tigerlily Mixolydian A
mellow mechanical voice, a gut guitar, a human samba-style rhythm section of Junpei & Kono pair, and a wind instrument with a sharp harmony. The digital and analog ensembles seemed to collapse, but vintage rhythm machines such as the TR808 and CP12 sewed them together.

6th song Coarse Linen
Personally, this song is an image of Gershwin, Debussy and Sonic Youth moving back and forth between each other's times and cities.

Song 7 Braque's Bird
I like the modern feel of compound time signatures, where 4/4 is sometimes mixed with 4/2. Like modern, the guitar phrase screams unanswered questions, the melody and chorus do not land on the tonic, and the middle chorus also uses repellent sounds. However, when I finished it, it turned out to be a pop song with a clear outline.
Georges Braque is famous for his cubism with Picasso, but after demobilizing from World War I, he has drawn many pictures of birds.

8th song Kissing The Moon
80's Factory and Rough Trade's vague memory sketch. I use a lot of modulation on my guitar. Sharp Nishiura-kun's drums and Ian Curtis's dance-like bass line. Rust that suddenly shuts down, the last that is suddenly cut off. The harmony of 2'46 ~ is one of my favorite places on this album.

The 9th song Glenn Smith The
title and lyrics are inspired by Moto Hagio's "Diary of Glenn Smith". The three chords at the beginning of the song are similar to "Night and Day" and are jazz-like songs that go back and forth between melancholy and liberation. I'm especially happy to have this song include a bassoon solo with a noble and warm sound and a glossy wood bass.

10th song Slaughterhouse
Loose 4/4 time signature. I often put it in the album, but I put it in the album because of the persuasive power of the three chorus chords and the three melody notes (for me). Originally, this title was given because it contained tentative lyrics based on Kurt Vonnegut's "Slaughterhouse 5".
One of the highlights of the album is the surround sound that spreads out where Yanagawa's guitar came in.......~
