    James Blake's Changing Form

    Brunch, Chanun Poomsawai, Published on 10/03/2019

    » "Now I'm confiding, know I may have/ Gone through the motions my whole life/ I hope this is the first day/ That I connect motion to feeling," James Blake wears his heart on his sleeve on the piano-driven opener/title track of his fourth studio album, Assume Form. The candid openness with which Blake addresses depression and anxiety, the struggles he's confessed of having since his 2011 debut album took off, is stunning to witness especially for an artist whose career is mostly built on nuances, abstraction and negative spaces.

    Top 20 singles of 2018 (Part 2)

    Brunch, 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.

    It's all peachy

    Brunch, Chanun Poomsawai, Published on 09/12/2018

    » Apart from the show's male winner Rangsan "Songkran" Panyaruen, The Voice Thailand Season 2 gave us a handful of female vocalists who'd showed strong potential including Violette Wautier and Rapeeporn "Lukpeach" Tantragoon. The former, as you may well be aware, has just started self-releasing her own music to wide acclaim. Lukpeach, on the other hand, found herself snug under the wing of Malama Collective, a co-op record label founded by Bangkok-based indie-music streaming platform Fungjai.

    Living in theatre

    Life, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 13/08/2015

    » Right after entering the theatre space on the fourth floor of the Bangkok Art and Culture Centre, Vidura Amranand was lying on the floor, scribbling on an acrylic box “when was the last time I cried about him?” A bit further into the production, Navinda Pachimsawat Vadtanakovint stood in awe of the pool of light that showered over her own shadow.

    Life, Apipar Norapoompipat, Published on 29/07/2016

    » Sitting at a café in an office building where he just finished his latest television interview, Tachaya "Keng" Pathumwan was met with a flowing line of excited office workers congratulating him on his latest achievements. He's an easy target to spot: dressed in all black with a sleeve of tattoos, numerous ear piercings and a Johnny Bravo-like hairstyle, "Keng The Voice" as he's better known after his stint in the singing contest is the latest name in the pool of talented Thais that have made the country proud.

    Touch, move, interact, open up

    Life, Amitha Amranand, Published on 20/07/2017

    » Even when they're about violence, Dujdao Vadhanapakorn's shows always feel inviting. Perhaps it's because of her therapy background (Dujdao is Thailand's first dance movement psychotherapist) that she likes to create the kind of space -- physical and emotional -- that invites you to touch, move, interact or open up.

    The trap of trust

    Life, Amitha Amranand, Published on 27/07/2017

    » We often get to see the intersection of the spiritual and the worldly realms in Nikorn Saetang's plays. Buddhist and animist beliefs also play a major role in his work. The spirits of a Japanese soldier and a pining woman walk among the living in search of their loved ones in Rai Pamnak (Where Should I Lay My Soul?). An adult-size baby forces himself into a family whose daughter is hiding her abortion from everyone in Tarok Jokapred (Perverted Baby). A man reincarnates over and over again and refuses to forget his past lives and his family in Kerd-Dub (Reincarnate).
