    Cut above the rest

    B Magazine, Chanun Poomsawai, Published on 12/05/2019

    » We first heard the name Cut The Crab back in 2014 when their single Mai Mee Kam Tob (Without Doubt) was featured in the Future Sound Of Bangkok's envelope-pushing debut compilation. Besides being one of the most forward-thinking records of that year, the compilation also gave us a sample of what local talents were capable of. Along with eclectic artists ranging from DCNXTR and Gramaphone Children (Jaree Thanapura) to Nolens.Volens. and Plastic Section, Cut The Crab stood out among the gifted bunch as a highly promising newcomer with a keen ear for electro-pop brilliance. Even though the band hasn't been exactly prolific over the past few years, the trio-turned-duo are now back at it with the release of their self-titled debut EP, a six-track collection that's been nearly half a decade in the making.

    More play, please

    B Magazine, 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.

    Returning to form

    B Magazine, Chanun Poomsawai, Published on 31/03/2019

    » It's hard to believe it's been nearly two decades since Ladytron unleashed its own version of electropop to the world. Hailing from Liverpool, the quartet of Helen Marnie, Mira Aroyo, Daniel Hunt and Reuben Wu first introduced themselves with their 2001 debut 604, a solid 16-track collection heavily influenced by the likes of Kraftwerk, New Order and Depeche Mode. In a period when the UK charts sounded a little uninspired (the No.1 singles ranged from JLo's Love Don't Cost A Thing to Limp Bizkit's Rollin' to Afroman's Because I Got High -- you get the idea), Ladytron's simmering cauldron of synth-pop and electro-industrial almost felt like an act of rebellion.

    Top 20 singles of 2018 (Part 2)

    B Magazine, Chanun Poomsawai, Published on 30/12/2018

    » As is tradition, we're wrapping up the year with a special two-part series featuring some of the best music to have come out locally and globally over the past 12 months. Culled from our 40-plus playlists stretching back to January, these tracks represent trends, cultural highlights and states of mind that reflect the times we're all living in (and trying to make some sense of). Without further ado, we're picking up right where we left off last week with our countdown to No.1. On that note, thank you for sticking with us until the very end -- here's to the new year of fewer whales choking on plastic bags, of nobody getting trapped in a cave, and maybe -- just maybe -- of an election.

    Tatat Bunnag, Published on 09/05/2016

    » After taking a few years off from music, good-natured pop singer Lalita Singtotong, better known as Noey Senorita, has surprised her fans with two new singles — the pop rock “Mee Krai Ngao Muen Rao Mai (Lonely)” and the moody ballad “Tua Lork (Don’t Be Fake).” Both songs will be included on her new album, which will be her first since 2009.

    A little thing called love

    B Magazine, Chanun Poomsawai, Published on 25/11/2018

    » Has anyone even noticed that Michael Bublé has been gone for two years? Well, us neither (for some reason it feels like he's always there forever blessing us with his rendition of great American songbook classics). But, yes, he did take a little hiatus following his oldest son's illness. There was talk of him retiring, which has turned out to be simply talk because here he is with his 10th studio effort, Love, a follow-up to 2016's Nobody But Me.

    Family forever

    Life, Alongkorn Parivudhiphongs, Published on 23/11/2018

    » A workaholic husband who just got laid off. A wife whose direct-sale career is soaring. Two teens devoting their time to friends and mobile phones. Here is the recipe for a broken home, and an ordinary-yet-spicy plot for Still On My Mind The Musical from director Takolkiat Viravan.

    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.

    TOP 20 singles of 2017

    B Magazine, Chanun Poomsawai, Published on 24/12/2017

    » Congratulations! You've made it to through the year, a rather challenging one characterised by a series of unfortunate events from the rise of the Alt-Right and the Weinstein scandal to devastating hurricanes and sights of starving polar bears. We've also lost a handful of musicians along the way -- Soundgarden's Chris Cornell, Linkin Park's Chester Bennington and Tom Petty, to name but a few. Thankfully, those who are still alive and kicking have served up some of the most memorable tunes we've had the pleasure of hearing this year. Handpicked from our Playlists over the last 12 months, here are the top 20 singles that have defined the year that was. This week we're counting down from 20 up to 11 and the rest will be revealed next week. Before we close up the shop, let's once again pat ourselves on the back for this year was no child's play by any standards. May you have strength and courage to wade through Donald Trump's tweets and Prayut Chan-o-cha's tantrums in the coming year.
