タイラヨオ/SOUL SAILIN'(2007)


キンキキッズ、倖田來未、ToLOVEるダークネスのキャラクターソングまで幅広い場に作詞提供する作家タイラヨオの1stアルバム。作詞家だが、LAでソングライターとして活動し、今作では作曲・アレンジも手掛けている自作自演作家だ。本アルバムの内容を一言で言うと、いかにもな宅録インディーR&B。その中にadriana evansやChristopher Williamsのようなメロウソウルの感性を放つ曲が存在する。都会的でスムースな質感の「Over You」「listen 2 my soul」は抜きん出てクオリティが高く、まさに90年代のネオソウルとして紹介されていても違和感が無い。ジャケットの手作り感が強かったので何も期待してなかったが意外な収穫だった。インディーズだが、30年続く老舗インディーズレーベル「キラキラレコード」からの出版なので入手は比較的容易かもしれない。
(Kinki Kids, Kumi Koda, To Love-Ru Darkness's character song, the 1st album of writer Tairayoo who provides lyrics to a wide range of places.Although he is a lyricist, he is a self-made writer who has been active as a songwriter in LA and is also composing and arranging this work.The content of the album is a mundane home recording indie R & B.Among them are songs that give off the sensibilities of mellow soul, such as adriana evans and Christopher Williams."Over You" and "listen 2 my soul", which have an urban and smooth texture, are by far the highest quality, and even if they are introduced as neo-souls in the 90's, there is no sense of discomfort.I didn't expect anything because the jacket had a strong handmade feel, but it was a surprising harvest.Although it is indie, it may be relatively easy to obtain because it is published from the long-established indie label "Kirakira Record" that has been running for 30 years.)

輝かしい70~80年代の名盤の影で完全にエアポケットと化した90~00年代産シティポップ。ブックオフとかハードオフで9割引きみたいな値段で売られてるCDを執拗に堀漁る重箱の隅みたいなブログです。似たような趣味の人達の集まり共同で書いてます。たまにイベントもやります。名前は、音楽ライターである金澤寿和さんの提唱する「Light Mellow」の概念を拝借しました。

City pop from the '90s and '00s that has completely become an air pocket in the shadow of the glorious '70s and '80s classics. It's a blog like a corner of the box where I relentlessly dig for CDs that are sold at 90% off at Bookoff or Hard Off. It's a group of people who have similar interests and write together. Occasionally we have events. The name was borrowed from the concept of "Light Mellow" advocated by music writer Toshikazu Kanazawa.
