無限電阻

香料

專輯介紹


沉寂了3年,香料如重獲新生一般再次開始自己的創作。這張命名為《無限電阻》的專輯,是樂隊成軍以來的第一張正式專輯。後網路資訊時代,不乏盲目去接受外界資訊而肆意擴散的人,但有一類人如同絕緣體一般單孑獨立,正因為他們的這種自持讓世界變得豐富而可愛。這群人是這個資訊流時代的“無限電阻”。

樂隊主腦陳陳陳在即將完成自己哲學博士學業的時候,通過音樂來閃回這些年創作思考的點滴歷程。除了運用更多的音效層疊,旋律編寫上亦是比之前的作品容易被記住。而新專輯給人最直觀的印象就是增加了很多人聲演唱的部分,其中有一半的歌曲由貝斯手Eli擔任主唱,香料正式蛻變為雙主唱迷幻電子團體。

整張專輯特邀三位混音師合作。具有國際視野的新生代電子製作人3ASiC、來自香港身兼嘻哈歌手與製作人的Dough-Boy、以及北京橫跨獨立與流行的鬼才混音師李越。正是因為這樣大的差別,三人為香料整張8首歌曲帶來了完全不一樣的聽覺體驗。新作中,《電影女孩》是香料為數不多慢歌,寫給逃避現實並沉迷于光影奇觀的一類人,希望他們對現實生活的平凡多些擔待。《休閒畫報》急促的鼓點,無厘頭的歌詞,是現代都市生活表面浮華實則空虛的真實寫照。《同步率》講述了一個發歌給心儀的人聽,自己也會掐著時間點開這首歌同步收聽的浪漫又日常故事。而《白細胞》、《深海奇珍》、《To Do List》這樣延續香料一貫電子舞曲風格的歌曲,綿長有力的低音嗡鳴下,結合具有想像空間的鼓點,豐富的電子聲效,同時不忘加上標籤性的怪異橋段,讓人一瞬間進入香料的世界。

After three years of silence, Spice returns with a new original album that rings with the fresh, unfamiliar sounds of a new direction. Möbius Omega is Spice’s first official album following a series of EPs and single releases.

“During the era of social media, many people blindly accept outside information and word of mouth, but there is a class of people that motivate themselves and form their own ideas that help the world to become stronger and richer. These people are the ‘Möbius Omega’... the infinite resistance of this age”.

As he was completing his PhD studies, Chen Chen Chen was also contemplating past work and honing his creative process. It was this self-reflection along with the challenges and lessons of furthering his education that led to the inspiration for this new album.

For this album Spice creates a wider sonic stage, layering effects and harmonies while the melodies stand out as more catchy than in previous works.

The biggest feature of this album is the abundance of vocal performances. In contrast to previous releases, there are no purely instrumental songs on this record.

The most noticeable difference existing fans of the band will find is the addition of a new voice. Eli (bass) is featured as a lead voice for the first time, officially transforming Spice into a dual fronted psychedelic-electronic group.

The mixing of this new sonic endeavor called for a special set of skills and perspectives for it to reach fruition. New generation electronic producer 3ASiC, hip-hop singer/producer Dough-Boy from Hong Kong, and popular independent remix artist/engineer Li Yue from Beijing all lent their talents in Möbius Omega’s production. Their independent mixing of selected songs from the album makes each song a completely different aural experience.

"Movie Girl" and “Synchronization” are two of Spice’s ballads. While the former tells the story of someone who tries to escape reality by indulging in the wonders they wish for in life, “Synchronization” is a love story that touches the heart of the romantic.

The fast pace of "Leisure Illustrated" along with nonsensical lyrics, and bustling sonic backdrop serve as a surface portrayal of the realities of modern urban life.

"White Blood Cell," "The Deep," and "To Do List," are a fresh take on Spice’s irresistibly dance inducing electronic tracks. They each feature powerful bass lines, solid drum grooves, lush electronic soundscapes, and that signature dash of strange that open the portal to the world of Spice, inviting listeners to dive through ears first.
