    Just like honey

    Brunch, Chanun Poomsawai, Published on 11/11/2018

    » In her own curated Spotify playlist "The Music That Inspired Honey", Robyn has put together more than a handful of tracks that helped will her long-anticipated sixth album into existence. Opening with the celebrated Soviet pianist Emil Gilels' rendition of Mozart's Piano Sonata No.14b In C Minor, K457: II Adagio, the playlist encapsulates her wide-ranging taste in music as it flits from the funk/soul/disco of the 70s (Gwen McCrae, George McCrae, Sylvester, Mary Clark) to a full spectrum of electronic music ranging from ambient and IDM to house and techno (Brian Eno, Aphex Twin, DJ Koze, Bicep, Roman Flügel). Listening to the record, one could almost trace all of these influences which are strewn across its nine tracks, precisely making up 40 minutes of thoughtful, unadulterated pop exhilaration.

    Life, Published on 07/11/2018

And blues, gospel, rock'n'roll, R&B, soul, funk and hip-hop. All of these genres have spread around the world and changed everyone and everything they have touched.

    Life, John Clewley, Published on 02/10/2018

    » Otis Rush, the legendary blues guitarist, singer and bandleader, died last week, following a long illness. He was 84 years old. Not as well-known as Chicago blues legends like Muddy Waters, Willie Dixon and Howling Wolf, he was, nonetheless, a major player in the development of the Chicago "West Side Sound" and his unique, guitar style influenced rock musicians like Mike Bloomfield, Duane Allman, Carlos Santana and Eric Clapton.

    The best of both worlds

    Life, Published on 01/10/2018

    » The Suanplu Chorus performed for the first time in the heart of Europe -- the Czech Republic's capital, Prague -- in a passionate choral concert hosted by the Royal Thai Embassy and the Czech-Thai Society. Led by Maestro Ramon M. Lijauco Jr, more than 30 Suanplu singers brightened with beautiful harmonies the Mirror Chapel of the Klementinum, a major historical venue in Prague. Thailand's finest a cappella ensemble -- a cappella is Italian for "in the manner of the chapel", making the Klementinum an auspicious venue for this performance -- earned a long standing ovation for their exciting blend of contemporary Western sacred music and Thai traditional songs arranged for chorus.

    Low's Highest Highs

    Brunch, Chanun Poomsawai, Published on 30/09/2018

    » Over the past two decades, not only have Minnesota's indie rockers Low carved out their own signature soundscape, they've also thrived in it. Their sound, largely existing in the slowcore territory, has a quiet way of sneaking up on the listener despite its surface minimalism. Now, after 11 fantastic albums under the collective belt, the threesome of Alan Sparhawk, Mimi Parker and Steve Garrington return with Double Negative, the band's 12th studio effort that also marks their 25th year in the business.

    A Return To Form

    Brunch, Published on 09/09/2018

    » There is an oft-recounted anecdote that tells the story of how B5 came to be B5. Basically, each of the group's members -- Suwira "Q" Boonrod, Mariam Grey, Saksit "Tor" Vejsupaporn, Chalatit "Ben" Tantiwut and Uthai "Cake" Poonyamund -- was slated to pursue a solo career as part of Bakery Music's new crop of artists. But that was before they shared the stage for Boyd Kosiyabong's Million Ways To Love: Part I concert, subsequently leading fans to believe that they were an actual, single-unit group. The label, apparently subscribing to the "there's no such thing as bad publicity" ethos, decided to market them as a quintet called B5. And what a decision that was, for their 2004 debut Event became a huge success, giving Bakery Music, whose popularity had been waning during the country's 1997 economic crisis, a much-needed boost.

    More play, please

    Brunch, Chanun Poomsawai, Published on 21/10/2018

    » While a compilation of cover songs is not an earth-shattering concept by any stretch of the imagination, a good one does have the power to bridge the gap between eras and connect/re-connect generations of artists as well as listeners. Conceived in 2009 by the Thai media conglomerate GMM Grammy to celebrate its 25th anniversary, Play Project gave rock-leaning artists a chance to cover their favourite tunes in their own playful style. Its first edition saw the likes of Bodyslam, Potato, Clash and Paradox reinterpreting a range of Thai pop classics including Bird Thongchai's Sia Dai, Mai Charoenpura's Sia Jai Dai Yin Mai and Nantida Kaewbuasai's Lakorn Chaak Sud Tai.

    Remember her name

    Brunch, Chanun Poomsawai, Published on 07/10/2018

    » "Maybe this the album you listen to in your car/ When you driving home late at night/ Really questioning every god, religion, Kanye, bitches" Noname knowingly begins in the opening salvo of Self. And when she continues to quip, "The baby ain't really yours, this really for babies teething/ And chicken wings under-seasoned/ Y'all really thought a bitch couldn't rap huh? Maybe this your answer for that," the tone for her second studio outing, Room 25, is officially set.
