Music Finds #14 – Fragile Voices
“Music Finds” is a new series, with new posts here on the blog each Wednesday. The concept is as follows:
As I listen to a lot of music, I from time to time finds a piece that sticks out, sometimes because it’s quirky, mixed two very unlikely genres, unlikely instruments, or just damn right having an awesome sound. Expect any kind of genre to appear here. These songs is what I will be sharing with you in these posts called “Music Finds”
But really it’s mostly a segment about some of my most played songs of the past week.”
This weeks theme is the lighter voices, those which sound so torn, soft or like their entire being is to dissolve into nothingness.
Lim Kim – No More
I’ll kick it off with the song that gave me the idea for this post (thank you SaSa for sharing!). This is a piece with well suited lyrics of lost emotion delivered in a mellow style, which is in nice collaboration with, yet in contrast to, the fairly “positive” feel of the instrumentals.
This song gets stuck in your head and is far to easy to keep on repeat, be warned.
Plastic Tree – Harusaki Sentimental
I could easily have made my Nostalgia for no reason-post just a list of Plastic Tree-songs, and if I haven’t already posted Spicia there, it would’ve made this list. It’s like Ryutaro (vocals/guitar) never runs out of emotion while singing like he’s about to implode, and each time it feels like he hits just the spot to make you feel longing and melancholic.
Akdong Musician – Melted
Melted is like heartfelt sadness in audio-form.
Veronica Maggio – Sergels Torg
I’m no heavy listener, but each time I put on a track by her, I become struck by how deeply emotional her voice (and stage presence) is, like in this performance below. I must admit however that it can easily get a bit boring if you listen to much of her works, but a song once in a while, like this below, is perfect if you need a little emotional kicker.
