Esistono fansites in rete?

Non riesco a scovarne…

Purtropo non lo so Opossum, però a me piacciono :slight_smile:

ma in special modo:

Grazie fratè.

Geniali, gli Air.

Premier Symptomes, molto buono
virgin suicides, noiosetto tranne la title track
moon safari è un capolavoro
1000 hz legend ottimo (anche grazie alle guest appearences di Beck)
talkie walkie, deludente e di maniera

Il mio preferito è 1000 hz legend, questo si un capolavoro, seguito a ruota dal celeberrimo Moon Safari. Poi la colonna sonora delle vergini suicide e Premier Symptomes, infine Talkie Walkie che è “solo” un buon disco.

Dopo 5.55 e Darkel finalmente il nuovo album:


Released on 5th March 2007

Following their 800,000 selling third album, “Talkie Walkie” (2004), Air are set to return with their new album “Pocket Symphony” to be released on 5th March 2007.

The album, made up of 12 songs that were recorded over the last 18 months and produced by long time partner Nigel Godrich, features vocals by Dunckel and Godin themselves but also from Jarvis Cocker and Neil Hannon (Divine Comedy).

Air once again achieve that rare supernova of artistic vision that dares to reconcile palpable, unapologetic ambience with unpretentious soulful simplicity. They create the alternate now, an environment that begs escapism without denying humanity.

While conventional instruments continue to play a great role, Air have fashioned several tracks from the new album with the addition of Far East classical instruments which Godin learnt to play from an Okinawa master - namely the Koto (usually referred to as a Japanese floor harp) and the Shamisen, a 3-stringed instrument which is one of Japan’s most popular classical instruments & resembles the banjo. Working their way throughout the album as musical ricochets, these unearthly sounds of an alien nature add another motif to Air’s sonic architecture.

Brought by the band into the visual creative process of the album artwork is contemporary artist Xavier Veilhan. Veilhan who, like Air, is both fascinated by the possibilities afforded by modern technology, and inspired by the conventional forms of ‘classical’ art, revisits and ‘models’ reality using modern media (photography, 3D scanning, digital imagery).

Air will embark on a European tour from Mid March, which will be followed by shows in the US from Mid April to Mid May. They will play at major festivals both in Europe and Japan during the summer and then continue touring for the rest of 2007.

The tracklisting is as follows:

  1. Space maker
  2. Once upon a time
  3. One Hell of a party
  4. Napalm love
  5. Mayfair song
  6. Left bank
  7. Photograph
  8. Mer du Japon
  9. Lost message
  10. Somewhere between waking and sleeping
  11. Redhead girl
  12. Night sight

e tra l’altro si trova già su internet…

alcuni brani si possono ascoltare qua, sembrano molto belli

Tra le mie 10 band preferite di sempre. Aquistai “Moon Safari” pochi giorni dopo l’uscita…fu amore al primo ascolto. Vennero a suonare a Roma nell’estate del 2004 all’interno della manifestazione estiva “FIESTA”, che si tiene ogni anno all’interno dell’ippodromo di Capannelle, prezzo d’ingresso comprensivo di concerto… 7 euro :slight_smile:

Il progetto solista di uno dei due, a nome Darkel, non mi ha detto granchè però…

La loro Kelly watch the stars è una delle mie canzoni preferite di sempre.

Adoro gli Air, ottima notizia il nuovo album.
