    Genius Knows No Gender

    Brunch, Chanun Poomsawai, Published on 18/11/2018

    » There's a certain genius to how female indie musicians Julien Baker, Phoebe Bridgers, and Lucy Dacus have banded together under the name boygenius (yes, all lowercase). The aim here, it seems, is to draw attention away from their gender that's often taken for granted in the male-dominated scene. Having met and bonded at the same tours and festivals over the years, the three artists realised that, not only do they share artistic visions, they also complement one another's talents.

    » Perhaps the one truly unique art form America has given the world came from the African slaves. Out of the horror of slavery grew jazz. And blues, gospel, rock'n'roll, R&B, soul, funk and hip-hop. All of these genres have spread around the world and changed everyone and everything they have touched.

    Life, John Clewley, Published on 16/10/2018

    » American guitarist Ry Cooder released his first studio album for six years recently. The Prodigal Son (Fantasy Recordings, USA) has put aside his more politically engaged music -- as heard on a series of albums, Chavez Ravine (2005), My Name Is Buddy (2007), Pull Up Some Dust And Sit Down (2011) and Election Special (2012) and returned to a more-gospel oriented sound that he created on his early albums.

    The art of being

    Brunch, Chanun Poomsawai, Published on 14/10/2018

    » Having ditched her successful career as a young start-up CEO to pursue music independently, Peeralada Sukawat, mononymously known as Pyra, has a lot to prove both to herself and to her family, who'd rather she took up a 9-to-5 job. "It's more about self-actualisation. I want to see something I expect of myself happen. The more people tell me I can't, the more I want to do it," she asserted in her 2016 interview with the Bangkok Post's now-defunct Saturday supplement Muse, wherein she talked candidly about depression and her frayed relationship with her mother. The piece further illuminates her self-produced debut EP Stray, a stunning release that, while deservedly vouched for by Apple Music Thailand, somehow failed to woo a local radio station because "they couldn't figure out what category I fell into".

    Brunch, Chanun Poomsawai, Published on 07/10/2018

    » "Maybe this the album you listen to in your car/ When you driving home late at night/ Really questioning every god, religion, Kanye, bitches" Noname knowingly begins in the opening salvo of Self. And when she continues to quip, "The baby ain't really yours, this really for babies teething/ And chicken wings under-seasoned/ Y'all really thought a bitch couldn't rap huh? Maybe this your answer for that," the tone for her second studio outing, Room 25, is officially set.

    Low's Highest Highs

    Brunch, Chanun Poomsawai, Published on 30/09/2018

    » Over the past two decades, not only have Minnesota's indie rockers Low carved out their own signature soundscape, they've also thrived in it. Their sound, largely existing in the slowcore territory, has a quiet way of sneaking up on the listener despite its surface minimalism. Now, after 11 fantastic albums under the collective belt, the threesome of Alan Sparhawk, Mimi Parker and Steve Garrington return with Double Negative, the band's 12th studio effort that also marks their 25th year in the business.

    » In case you're unaware, the hip-hop scene in Thailand is blowing up right now. Underground talents are getting unprecedented exposure on mainstream TV reality shows The Rapper and Show Me The Money. All of this crazy hype can (and should) be credited to the Bangkok-based online community Rap Is Now, which has played an integral part in the re-emergence of the local hip-hop scene. Their infamous "battles", now in their fourth season, have bestowed upon us talents like UrboyTJ, Youngohm and Twopee Southside -- all of whom are currently basking in the glow of mainstream success.

    Anger is an energy

    Life, Gary Boyle, Published on 17/08/2018

    » It takes Trent Reznor 45 minutes to say hello. He voices his surprise that it's taken his band Nine Inch Nails nearly 30 years to do a show in Thailand. They almost made it in 2014 for the aborted Silverlake Festival in Pattaya, cancelled due to the volatile political climate, so there was no small amount of anticipation ahead of their show at Bangkok's packed Moonstar Studio on Tuesday night.
