    Life, Melalin Mahavongtrakul, Published on 10/12/2015

    » While recent high-profile concerts would have likely featured the city's party people drinking beers, Bangkok's latest gig had a totally different atmosphere. For a brief moment, I almost thought I'd wandered into a high school reunion for middle-aged people.

    Widescreen memories

    Brunch, Chanun Poomsawai, Published on 20/01/2019

    » Ever since I embarked on this music-criticism journey some five years ago, it's always been a personal mission of mine to be as diverse as possible when it comes to the albums I choose to review.

It's an apt start given the wholesome intentions of this EP, although it feels slightly jarring to hear one of the world's greatest speeches getting paired with the euphoric synths supplied here by the Norwegian production behemoth Stargate. The song is clearly engineered for a stadium/festival setting, so casual listening might not be the best way to approach what would otherwise be a stirring anthem.

Culled from our 40-plus playlists stretching back to January, these tracks represent trends, cultural highlights and states of mind that reflect the times we're all living in (and trying to make some sense of).
