    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.

    Soulful, sorrowful, tragic

    Life, Kong Rithdee, Published on 28/08/2015

    » Amy is a biographical documentary of the singer Amy Winehouse, but it is also a horror film. Watching it is like watching a ghost, a confused, tortured ghost of a woman who has boundless talent in singing and none in living. As we watch Amy Winehouse -- in home video footage, concert recordings, TV interviews, etc -- it hits us that we're watching her being killed slowly at every passing minute; killed by herself, her addiction, and by the cruel ecosystem of the fame industry that feeds first on her gift then more voraciously on her downfall. This is one of the best documentary films this year, and in some parts it's also one of the hardest to watch.

    A star is reborn

    Life, Tatat Bunnag, Published on 12/10/2018

    » Why is everyone talking about A Star Is Born? Partly because it's a musical romantic drama that has been retold so many times in Hollywood (now, as well as in 1976, 1957, 1937). It's also because the film features two of the best-known faces in the film and music worlds: Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga. The film has already gathered Oscar buzz, especially surrounding the speculation that the two leads would receive matching nominations.

    Thai pianist plays Ravel

    Life, Published on 25/08/2015

    » The future of classical music may well be in the hands of Asian musicians. Evidence of this was again demonstrated by a Thai pianist, Kwanchanok Pongpairoj, the featured soloist in Maurice Ravel's Piano Concerto In G Major, which she performed in the Prince Mahidol Hall with the Thailand Philharmonic Orchestra on Aug 15. Kwanchanok is yet another Thai who is currently studying abroad -- in her case, in Manchester, England. Her early talent was rewarded with the Valedictorian Award from the College of Music at Mahidol University and after graduation, she collected more awards, including First Prize at the Princess Galyani Vadhana International Ensemble Competition in 2014.

    Boogie down one last time

    Life, John Clewley, Published on 13/01/2015

    » Johnny Otis was one of the pioneers of R&B, a key but often neglected figure in the development of rock'n'roll. Otis passed away, aged 90, at his home in California in 2012, after a lifetime in show business as a performer and band leader, composer, arranger, producer, disc jockey, nightclub owner, talent scout, political activist and cartoonist. He had over 20 R&B and pop hits between 1948-60 and was responsible for the discovery of Etta James, Hank Ballard, Jackie Wilson and Little Esther Jones, among others.
