    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.

    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".

    Top 20 Singles of 2016

    Brunch, Chanun Poomsawai, Published on 25/12/2016

    » Whew! What an overwhelmingly eventful year 2016 has been. Much like Bob Dylan's ambivalence towards his Nobel Prize win, we too can't fully wrap our head around what went down these past 12 months -- what with all the monumental changes in politics worldwide and a number of musical greats we've lost from David Bowie and Prince, to Leonard Cohen and Sharon Jones. Despite everything that transpired, this year has seen some great, sonically diverse releases. Here, we present to you this year's top 20 singles, a good handful of which are brimming with a political urgency that brilliantly reflects the tumultuous times we're all living in. (Note that these are not in any particular order).

    Making a world all of their own

    Brunch, Chanun Poomsawai, Published on 17/01/2016
