    Riding shotgun with the Boss

    Life, Published on 23/09/2016

    » Long dark highways and thin white lines; fire roads and interstates; the skeleton frames of burned-out Chevrolets; barefoot girls sitting on the hoods of Dodges; pink Cadillacs; last-chance power drives; men who go out for a ride and never come back.

    Anthems for the end of the world

    B Magazine, Chanun Poomsawai, Published on 24/03/2019

    » If you happen to recall the indie explosion that came and went during the mid-noughties, you're most likely to recall how UK math-rockers Foals were perched right on the forefront alongside the now-nowhere-to-be-found groups like Kasabian, Hard-Fi and Maxïmo Park. Although not the first band to come up with it, they're largely responsible for spreading the gospel of that intricate, tightly-wound guitar work that's gone on to more or less define the genre. Over time, the Foals' signature hectic romp that was the backbone of their 2008 landmark debut, Antidotes, has transformed into something a little more polished and more mature. Subtle sonic shifts can already be detected on their second LP, Total Life Forever (how much of a revelation is Spanish Sahara?), and even more so on the subsequent records, the unabashedly potent Holy Fire and What Went Down.

    Revolutionary Dreams

    Life, Published on 15/04/2019

    » In the presence of HRH Princess Sirivannavari Nariratana, it was a refreshing delight to hear the Royal Bangkok Symphony Orchestra (RBSO) perform Prokofiev's brilliant Piano Concerto No.3 at the Thailand Cultural Centre late last month, with Bulgarian pianist Dora Deliyska rising commendably to the considerable challenges present in this undisputed pinnacle of the literature. It represents an imposing challenge for even top level performers.

    The bottle half full

    B Magazine, Chanun Poomsawai, Published on 28/10/2018

    » There's always an underlying sense of deadpan humour and laid-back nihilism to the way Kurt Vile approaches his music. This is especially true on his previous two records (2015's b'lieve i'm goin down and last year's collaborative effort with Courtney Barnett Lotta Sea Lice) as well as his latest, Bottle It In, which marks his first new solo work in three years. Recorded in several locations around the US while on tour, the 78-minute album is helmed with assistance from indie rock's upper echelon of producers including Rob Schnapf (Elliot Smith) and Peter Katis (The National, Japandroids), plus fellow artists ranging from Kim Gordon to Warpaint's drummer Stella Mozgawa.

    Exhilarating escapism, Spielberg-style

    Life, Published on 30/03/2018

    » A breathless romp through virtual reality, Steven Spielberg's Ready Player One presents a T-Rex-size irony: A film that cautions us against the exhilarating escapism of digital simulacrum that divorces us from reality -- VR, 3D, Facebook, online games, movies -- is first and foremost an exhilarating escapism manufactured upon a massive digital simulacrum. Spielberg, one of the first directors to turn Hollywood into a factory of digital effects, certainly knows this. But with unruffled confidence and youthful velocity, the 71-year-old gambles that the thrills would override the insincerity -- that nobody would mind the self-defeating scruples as long as the breakneck ride keeps us glued.

The exhibition is organised by the Japan Foundation Bangkok and Chang Chui, with the support from the Embassy of Japan and the Japanese Association in Thailand.

    Rescuing the past

    Life, Karnjana Karnjanatawe, Published on 10/07/2019

    » A team of researchers controlled a drone to take pictures of the 56m-tall bell-shaped stupa of Wat Phra Mahathat Woramahawihan in Nakhon Si Thammarat. It slowly flew in a cycle from the base to the top of the golden spine while capturing the high-resolution images of the structure.
