    B Magazine, Published on 01/01/2012

    » This year has seen the tragic loss of geniuses such as Gil Scott-Heron and Amy Winehouse, and an unprecedented number of indie gigs (the Drums, Vivian Girls, the Whitest Boy Alive).

Without more ado, and in no particular order, here are our Top 10 tracks that defined 2011.

    Sino-Siamese sensibilities

    Life, Published on 04/01/2012

    » Thais with Chinese blood constitute over 30% of the country's population. Since the Sukhothai era 700 years ago, Siam and China have maintained a strong relationship on many levels. Evidently, the Chinese quality has in many ways become part of the representation of Thainess, old and contemporary; it is the main foreign culture whose influence on the Thai lifestyle, value and creativity remains strong.

    Toying with terror

    Life, Kong Rithdee, Published on 16/01/2012

    » Loners in Roberto Bolano's stories drift from anxiety and obsession into something darker. Like poetry, bibliophilia, murder, madness. The downward spiral is gradual and unstoppable, its path littered with symbols, graveyards and black humour. Very black. And very humorous. You emerge from one of his books _ and so many of them have been released in English in the seven years since his death, aged 50, in 2003 _ soaked in a cold sweat, like one of those amateur detectives in his novels who stray too close to the abyss and limbo.

    Another version the three Bs

    Life, Ung-Aang Talay, Published on 24/01/2012

    » In a note accompanying this recording, conductor Alan Gilbert refers to the programme as "our version of The Three Bs" _ with Berg replacing Beethoven _ and describes it as a "serious" and "sad". It spans three centuries and encompasses music dissimilar enough in style to make it challenging to the audience, whose ears will have to do quite a lot of style-sensitivity gear-changing.

    Film festival needs direction

    Life, Kong Rithdee, Published on 01/02/2012

    » If the Red Carpet works, the film festival works. That seems to be the motto of the hype machine behind last weekend's Hua Hin International Film Festival, which proudly paraded stars down the sandy, horse-free beach of the InterContinental while the cinemas were haunted by ghosts. Nothing's wrong with using a movie festival to support tourism, as long as some attention is paid to what it's all about: film, and the film-going experience.
