I was impressed by NHK「SONGS」 featuring吉澤嘉代子

東京絶景

東京絶景

 

    ここ数年,勝手に注目していたシンガーソングライターの一人,吉澤嘉代子さんが先日,NHKの「SONGS」に取り上げられて大喜びしていました。彼女を知ったきっかけは,「手品」という曲で,アマゾンのデジタルミュージックでたまたま見かけたのを試聴して,その声質とどこか椎名林檎を思わせる独特な発声と,それでいてめちゃくちゃキャッチーな明るい曲調にすぐに虜になりました。それから,「綺麗」「泣き虫ジュゴン」とハマる曲にいくつも出会い,何でもっと注目されないのか,不思議に思っていただけに,今回の放送はとてもうれしいものでした。 

 Yoshizawa Kayoko, a singer-songwriter who I’ve been watching by myself for the last few years, was featured in a NHK’s TV program titled “SONGS”, so I was absolutely delighted. I got to know her by a song named “手品”which I happened to find on Amazon’s digital music and I listened to it a little, I was soon fascinated with her voice’s quality and her unique diction that somewhat reminds me of Siina Ringo, plus, with the catchy and cheerful melody. Since then I was into some of her songs like “綺麗”,”泣き虫ジュゴン”, and I’ve been wondering why people don’t watch her more, so I was really glad to see the program covered her finally.

  でも,犬だけが友達だったとか,小学校5年生から不登校だったとか,意外な人となりに驚くとともに,一筋縄ではいかない歌詞やこれまで感じていたとらえどころのなさが妙に腑に落ちた気になりました。吉澤さんにかかわっているアーチストは元東京事変伊澤一葉さんやサニーデイ・サービス曽我部恵一さんなど大物ばかりで,本当にこれからの活躍が楽しみな歌い手さんです。 

 I was surprised at some of her episodes such as her only friend was a dog or she was a dropout since she was a five grader in elementary school, I was also somehow convinced about her lyrics which is not so simple and the subtleness of her character I had felt. The artists who has supported her are big stars such as Izawa itiyou, an ex-member of Tokyo Jihen, and Sokabe Keiiti from Sunny-day Service, etc. I'm really looking forward to see her wonderful work from now on.
