    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.

    Fight for the light is a dull affair

    Life, Melalin Mahavongtrakul, Published on 19/07/2019

    » Suddenly, there is light, illuminating the darkness, bringing electricity to an era of fire. Electricity is the star of The Current War, a stylised period drama set in late 1800s that chronicles two world-famous investors and entrepreneurs as they compete to provide electricity and light for the country, trying to win over different states and cities to their sides. And yet, The Current War never manages to spark into life.

    » Born and raised in Spanish Town, just outside Kingston in Jamaica, Mikayla "Koffee" Simpson became known three years ago for her viral video in which she played her acoustic guitar and sang a dedication to Olympic legend Usain Bolt.

    Anthems for the end of the world

    B Magazine, Chanun Poomsawai, Published on 24/03/2019

    » If you happen to recall the indie explosion that came and went during the mid-noughties, you're most likely to recall how UK math-rockers Foals were perched right on the forefront alongside the now-nowhere-to-be-found groups like Kasabian, Hard-Fi and Maxïmo Park. Although not the first band to come up with it, they're largely responsible for spreading the gospel of that intricate, tightly-wound guitar work that's gone on to more or less define the genre. Over time, the Foals' signature hectic romp that was the backbone of their 2008 landmark debut, Antidotes, has transformed into something a little more polished and more mature. Subtle sonic shifts can already be detected on their second LP, Total Life Forever (how much of a revelation is Spanish Sahara?), and even more so on the subsequent records, the unabashedly potent Holy Fire and What Went Down.

    A glow of satisfaction

    B Magazine, Chanun Poomsawai, Published on 18/08/2019

    » In 2017, the world got to know singer-songwriter Mattiel Brown and her band (guitarist Jonah Swilley, bassist Travis Murphy and drummer Jordan Manley) for the first time. Collectively called Mattiel, the up-and-coming quartet made quite an impression with their self-titled debut -- so much so that they garnered an endorsement from Jack White. Since then, the hype surrounding the band has been nothing short of palpable. People are genuinely excited by Mattiel's sound, which takes cues from rock'n'roll legends like The Ramones, The Rolling Stones and The Velvet Underground, and garage/punk icons like Patti Smith and The Clash.

    So long Hawaiian shirt, hello disco ball

    B Magazine, Chanun Poomsawai, Published on 25/08/2019

    » The wait for and the painfully gradual lead-up to the release of Friendly Fires' third studio album, Inflorescent, have been a year-long affair, a process that began early last year with a quiet banger Love Like Waves. The way the album unfolds over the course of 15 months is perhaps not the most ideal in the age of music streaming where artists and labels have to appease elusive algorithms and metadata by constantly pumping out what they hope would be a next big smash.
