融合美式吉他与英式guitar/piano摇滚乐风之洛城新兴四人乐团首张专辑

超级制作人Brendan O’Brien(Red Hot Chili PeppersAerosmithKorn)掌舵

主唱嗓音建构迷人的摇滚深度,犹如英国Keane遇上Coldplay的巧妙结合

快速窜进登陆热门潜力榜Top20,推荐伴入悠扬简单钢琴声调首波招牌曲式〈Boston

一提到摇滚乐,也许有很多人会觉得吵,会觉得听起来有压力,然而加入轻柔钢琴声韵缓和些许摇滚霸气,感染力足够嗓音搭腔,毫无压迫感的道出百般声音情绪,Augustana将会是听惯重装美式摇滚的朋友绝佳嚐鲜乐团,喜爱英式摇滚粉丝们爱不释手新选择。

身兼主唱、钢琴、吉他手职务的Dan Layus,於美国伊利诺州大学求学时期,为了一圆音乐美梦而组织起乐团,并放弃继续就学机会前往加州另寻摇滚梦,原始贝斯手团员Simeon Lorhmann却选择完成学业而离开。2004年Dan重新组织起Augustana,包括:主奏吉他手Josiah Rosen、贝斯/键盘手Jared Palomar以及鼓手Justin South共四位大将。正式成军没多久,他们优异表现很快赢得主流大厂一纸合约,速度之快着实让急於被发掘的後起新秀羡慕不已。

登陆热门潜力榜Top20的首张专辑《All The Stars And Boulevards》,请来摇滚界鼎鼎大名超级制作人Brendan O’Brien(Red Hot Chili Peppers、Rage Against The Machine、Aerosmith、Korn)掌舵并加宽Augustana摇滚深度。厚实鼓声勾引出开场曲〈Mayfield〉,转入吉他流畅音频导入,Dan真假音转换不花俏且自然表露,动听打开乐迷双耳;毫不在意随性演唱方式於〈Hotel Roosevelt〉中有着相当戏剧性演出;首波招牌曲式〈Boston〉,伴入悠扬简单钢琴声调,Dan相当讨喜嗓音谱进,犹如英国Keane/基音乐团遇上Coldplay/酷玩乐团的巧妙结合;换上吉他与钢琴共鸣的〈All The Stars And Boulevards〉,陷入Augustana令人无法转移注意力的美丽音乐图像之中;叙述一段伤感男女情爱韵事的〈Sunday Best〉,却以柔软舒缓摇滚曲调包裹,诚如醒在一个慵懒微温星期日早晨般自在。Augustana取之平衡的带出拥有流畅旋律以及劲道十足节拍,让你对摇滚乐有着深刻记印以及耐人寻味聆听触感。(博客来)

Augustana is a four-piece group from L.A. that combines the introspective grittiness of American guitar rock (think the Wallflowers and Counting Crows) with the wide-angle theatrics of U.K. guitar/piano rock (think Radiohead before they went nuts or a less epic Coldplay). That may sound interesting, but their debut major label album, All the Stars and Boulevards, is a fairly hollow exercise that feels like it was concocted in a record label boardroom. That’s not to say that it was or that all plans hatched in that manner are inherently wrong. It just points to the elements (originality, excitement, soul) that are missing from Augustana. From the overly processed guitars to singer Dan Layus’ simultaneously bland and over-emoted vocals to the slickness of the melodies and the clichéd authenticity of the perfectly crafted arrangements, there isn’t much to sink your teeth into here. Even for fans of the bands Augustana is so obviously influenced by, they will feel like they are listening to a third- or fourth-generation Xerox copy. All that said, the album is still listenable in a strange kind of way since the lack of any distinguishing features allows the music to be perfect background music. Sort of like elevator AOR. Sort of like a wasted 40 minutes.
