    Footloose and fancy-free

    Brunch, Chanun Poomsawai, Published on 17/03/2019

    » Over the past decade, Beirut's Zach Condon has been a go-to guy for what I like to refer to as "speciality indie rock". This is just a fancy way of saying that the music is unlike your typical indie sound. Beirut are masters when it comes to injecting world music elements into their repertoire, which has accumulated into a sizeable discography since their 2006 debut Gulag Orkestar. And although the boys may have faltered somewhat with previous effort No No No, they're back stronger than ever with their latest, Gallipoli.

    Tomorrow Starts Today

    Brunch, Chanun Poomsawai, Published on 24/02/2019

    » From returning to college, starring in the Netflix series The OA and getting pregnant, New York-based singer-songwriter Sharon Van Etten has had a busy few years prior to the arrival of her fifth studio outing, Remind Me Tomorrow. The record, helmed by indie rock's go-to producer John Congleton (St. Vincent, Future Islands, Unknown Mortal Orchestra), reflects those changes in her life via a stylistic shift that emphasises less on the guitars, but more on other instruments like synths, pianos and even occasional drones.

    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".

    The old becoming new

    Life, Published on 04/09/2018

    » You know you're at a Scrubb concert when the majority of the audience shows up in striped tops with khaki or olive-green cargo pants. This look is part of the package of the faces of the band, Ball and Muay, along with the addition of old-age jokes that they now crack willingly. But it's not just the 40-something duo who feel the gravity of ageing, as throughout Saturday evening you also hear the audience themselves muttering under their breath: "I'm getting too old for this" or "I don't think my body is cut out for this anymore" after a string of pumping hits.

    Life from Mars

    Life, Melalin Mahavongtrakul, Published on 03/05/2018

    » The first thing we saw was a crown -- grand, golden and red -- emblazoned on a green curtain that covered the entire stage. Suddenly it was a mystery, and we were more than ready to find out what Bruno Mars had in store for his Bangkok leg of the 24K Magic World Tour, held on Monday and Tuesday. A concert on Labour Day? Yep, that was exactly what we all needed. Dance, sing and scream (and forget about work) -- that was how the night went for the attendees.

The return of much-admired visiting Japanese conductor Hide Shindori was also a welcome choice, inspiring the RBSO to perform with much energy and commitment.

    Tremendous trombone

    Life, Harry Rolnick, Published on 30/01/2018

    » 'Never look directly at a trombone player," said the great composer Richard Strauss. "It only encourages them." Then again, the German composer was hardly being honest about an instrument which Felix Mendelssohn called "the most sacred and noble instrument in the orchestra".
