Leisure Cruise, An Invitation into a New World

By: Paul Payabyab-Cruz
Friday night, I had the pleasure of speaking with Leah Siegel and Dave Hodge of Leisure Cruise before they went on stage at Rough Trade in NYC. When asked about describing their music Leah said “…some people describe it as apocalyptic.” I can understand why she doesn’t agree with this. The end of the world has negative connotations while their music feels like a celebration of positive human potential. However, if I were to define the Apocalypse as the end of the world in order to give birth to one where people dance and smile instead of kill each other, I’d have to agree.

As soon as Leisure Cruise took the stage I could feel the smiles in the audience behind me reflecting the band’s.  Their composition of space age outfits, psychedelic projections, and pulsing rhythms came together in a way that felt choreographed but never contrived. With everyone around me dancing as if their bodies knew nothing else, it felt like Leisure cruise was playing to the crowd’s steps as much as the music was dictating them. I imagine this is what a party on the moon would be like.

In a time where I feel like music has become a spectator sport, Leisure Cruise’s ability to close the gap between audience and artist is refreshing. If you want to see a show where watching and hearing turns into feeling, Leisure Cruise is it.

    CHANEL(シャネル)とは何かというと、ココ・シャネルが始めたファッションブランド。元々は帽子の専門店 「シャネル・モード」の創設からスタートしました。どのバッグを買おうか悩むのは、日本女性にとって喜びのひとつ。どんな大きさのエルメスバッグ 偽物を洋服に合わせるかによって、人に与える格好のジャンルが大きく変わってきます。グッチ・シャネル・ヴィトンのファッションブランドを始め、一流バッグはやっぱり安く売っている店がありませんね。アウトレットの値段でなるべくGETしたいものです。ハイブランドを身に着けているとどうしてだか気持ちが落ち着くだけでなく、自分がちょっとしたセレブになれたような気分に。つまりは、内面から満たされているように感じると言われています。安価に入手できるだけでなく、国外の一流ブランドの商品には海外でしか手に入らない物などが数多く揃っているので、そうした珍しい商品も通信販売でダイレクトに注文できます。
