[228] Yet Another Musical Interlude - Belle and Sebastian

Aprovechando mi nueva conexion rapida, tener al nene en casa y un fin de semana largo, libre...bueno, a seguir buscando musica. Siempre me ha gustado este grupo escoses Belle and Sebastian. Tienen unas letras curiosas que no siempre coinciden con el sentimiento que dicen expresar. O sea, puede ser una letra y musica feliz, pero en realidad expresa un fracaso amoroso...Combinemos esto con mi otra obsesion, versiones animadas de las cosas y pues la maquina engrana.  Asi que comencemos a postear videos.

Fracaso amoroso.  Mmm.  Creo que comenzare con este video (puntos extras por la excelente animacion que le hicieron):

Another sunny day, I met you up in the garden
You were digging plants, I dug you, beg your pardon
I took a photograph of you in the herbaceous border
It broke the heart of men and flowers and girls and trees

Another rainy day, we’re trapped inside with a train set
Chocolate on the boil, steamy windows when we met
You’ve got the attic window looking out on the cathedral
And on a Sunday evening bells ring out in the dusk

Another day in June, we’ll pick eleven for football
We’re playing for our lives the referee gives us fuck all
I saw you in the corner of my eye on the sidelines
Your dark mascara bids me to historical deeds

Now everybody’s gone you picked me up for a long drive
We take the tourist route the nights are light until midnight
We took the evening ferry over to the peninsula
We found the avenue of trees went up to the hill
That crazy avenue of trees, I’m living there still

There’s something in my eye a little midge so beguiling
Sacrificed his life to bring us both eye to eye
I heard the Eskimos remove obstructions with tongues, dear
You missed my eye, I wonder why, I didn’t complain
You missed my eye, I wonder why, please do it again

The lovin is a mess what happened to all of the feeling?
I thought it was for real; babies, rings and fools kneeling
And words of pledging trust and lifetimes stretching forever
So what went wrong? It was a lie, it crumbled apart
Ghost figures of past, present, future haunting the heart

Video by Nicole Benz and Calen Henry

Song by Belle and Sebastian

Hoy parte de mi dia se me fue en el laundry. Claro, jamas y nunca es tan curioso como el de este video:

Otra version animada aqui:

An animated short by Kate Anderson set to Belle & Sebastian’s The Blues Are Still Blue

Tengo curiosidad y posiblemente exponga esto en un articulo futuro.  Los ingleses y los suramericanos tien gran habilidad usando Adobe Flash para hacer videos.  Una tendencia es la facilidad de generar estos videos.  Mas aun, que hagan este tipo de proyectos por amor al arte.

Digo, se que el amor al arte, es un amor interesado en darse a conocer.  Pero no es lo mismo hacer unos garabatos y ponerlos en linea a estos gigantescos proyectos...Va amarrado al remix culture, al mercadeo y distribucion que comence a discutir con Antigonum en par de articulos.  Creo que amerita mas cari/no antes de ponerlo como algo en el blog.  Creo que lo dejare aqui, con un poco de info del grupo.
Belle and Sebastian are an indie pop band formed in Glasgow in January 1996. Belle and Sebastian are often compared with influential indie bands such as The Smiths,[1][2] as well as classic acts such as Love, Bob Dylan and Nick Drake.[3][4] The name Belle & Sebastian comes from Belle et Sébastien, a 1965 children's book by French writer Cécile Aubry, later adapted for television and an anime.[4][5] Though consistently lauded by critics,[6][7] Belle & Sebastian's "wistful pop"[8] has enjoyed only limited commercial success.[6]
After releasing a number of albums and EPs on Jeepster Records, they are now signed to Rough Trade Records in the United Kingdom and Matador Records in the United States.
