大音希声,大象无形,一定要花红柳绿纷繁复杂才能表现好什么?Rivulets的Nathan Amundson显然不吃这套。在他的音乐世界里,一切从简,一片荒芜。然而清风暗许离别时,飞花落叶皆伤人,黯然销魂只在高手撩拨之间萦绕,寂寞冷清之时,歇斯底里哭天抢地则已是俗套。而俗套,需要么?坚决不需要。

2002年乐队发行的首张同名专辑《Rivulets》里,各种辛酸忧郁纠结其中却自有一番引人入胜的景象。Nathan Amundson敏感而脆弱的嗓音一贯是摧枯拉朽的利器,种种悲情娓娓道来,亦幻亦真令人难以抗拒。在这首Four Weeks(四星期)中,满是一个为爱心碎将死之人的喃喃自语:“嗨医生,给根烟吧,我就要死了,你就让我这么离开… 她说我对这个世界充满绝望,我回答,是你让我对这个世界充满绝望… 四星期就是一个月,十二个月又是一年,你还要让我等待多久?” 絮叨和绝望,重复再重复,歌词冗长沉重,铃声轻轻勾勒出的华彩是唯一的轻盈悦耳然而仅供喘息。全曲宛如六分多钟的一部低成本色调阴暗的纪录片,却总会有人被其中某些东西吸引,对号入座翻滚情绪,然后鼓掌离开。用简简单单的元素来放大情感,Nathan Amundson确实做到了很不一般的效果。
