    The bottle half full

    Brunch, Chanun Poomsawai, Published on 28/10/2018

    » There's always an underlying sense of deadpan humour and laid-back nihilism to the way Kurt Vile approaches his music. This is especially true on his previous two records (2015's b'lieve i'm goin down and last year's collaborative effort with Courtney Barnett Lotta Sea Lice) as well as his latest, Bottle It In, which marks his first new solo work in three years. Recorded in several locations around the US while on tour, the 78-minute album is helmed with assistance from indie rock's upper echelon of producers including Rob Schnapf (Elliot Smith) and Peter Katis (The National, Japandroids), plus fellow artists ranging from Kim Gordon to Warpaint's drummer Stella Mozgawa.

    The light between oceans

    Brunch, Chanun Poomsawai, Published on 16/12/2018

    » From its origins as the solo project of guitarist Noppanan Panicharoen in 2006, Inspirative has steadily evolved into one of Thailand's most consistent post-rock bands. The line-up now boasts four additional members: bassist Amornthep Masawang, guitarist Pongpat Phaukwattana, drummer Sirichai Chanmanklakul and pianist/vocalist Wuttipong Huangpetch. The quintet established themselves on the Bangkok indie circuit through gigs at legendary indie nights like Dudesweet and Mind The Gap. This, naturally, led to the release of Floating Down Through The Clouds, their debut three-track EP whose title was inspired by the lyrics to Pink Floyd's 1983 prog-rock ballad, The Gunners Dream. This was followed by the equally stellar releases Mysteriously Awake and Memories Come Rushing Up To Meet Me Now.

    A Light That Never Goes Out

    Brunch, Chanun Poomsawai, Published on 14/01/2018

    » The year was 2000 and Linkin Park had just released their debut album, Hybrid Theory. Fronted by Chester Bennington, the LA band brought to the global music scene, then perforated by the likes of Backstreet Boys and Britney Spears, a little something different. Fusing heavy metal with hip-hop with electronica and Bennington's screamo vocals, they quickly became a personal saviour to angst-ridden teenagers all over the world. With 27 million copies sold, Hybrid Theory ranks as one of the world's best-selling albums.
