    The fire still burning

    Life, Kong Rithdee, Published on 03/03/2016

    » It was never business as usual for Santana, despite this being his sixth visit to Bangkok. On Monday night, we got what we're always happy to get from Carlos and his band -- thrilling musicianship, fiery Latin polyrhythms, passionate guitar solos, tribal percussive beats, a message of joy and love, and of course the 1,001st performance of Black Magic Woman and other classics. Carlos Santana, 68, continues to work his guitar hard as he put fire in the old melodies (he's probably the only performer of the 1969 Woodstock who's still touring inexhaustibly), and although the guitar-based Latin rock is hardly coursing the vein of the 21st-century soundscape, he never tires of making it authentic and fun.

    Mitski, demystified

    B Magazine, Published on 26/08/2018

    » Born to an American father and a Japanese mother, Mitski Miyawaki spent her childhood essentially being a nomad and a stranger in foreign lands. After stints in countries like Congo and Turkey, she relocated to New York, where she pursued her artistic passions, dabbling in film study before eventually focusing on music. This gave her a bit of a head start in the industry because, by the time she graduated, she'd already self-released two records, Lush and Retired From Sad, New Career In Business, as part of her school projects.

    Portrait Of An Artist

    B Magazine, Chanun Poomsawai, Published on 06/10/2019

    » "I just don't wanna be back in this place again/ I mean, I done cried a little/ Tried a little, failed a little/ I don't wanna do it again," Brittany Howard confesses on History Repeats, a funky opener to her solo debut Jaime. Built on acid jazz and neo-soul groove, the song bustles with the genre-blurring spirit of her former band Alabama Shakes and her own irreverent energy. Singing those words, Howard sounds empowered and energised like a weight has been lifted. "History repeats and we defeat ourselves/ Come on everybody, one more time again," before you know it, the song turns into an infectious anthem, leaving in its wake a glimpse into her self-discovery that would go on to define the rest of the album.
