    The forever fruit's natural clothing

    Brunch, Suthon Sukphisit, Published on 17/03/2019

    » Banana might be one of the most ordinary plants, but it has long been in Thailand's culture, food, lifestyle and many other aspects of people's lives. Possibly, bananas have been with Thais longer than all other plants. Yet people somehow overlook the benefits of bananas and do not use them any more because they have found a better replacement.


    Footloose and fancy-free

    Brunch, Chanun Poomsawai, Published on 17/03/2019

    » Over the past decade, Beirut's Zach Condon has been a go-to guy for what I like to refer to as "speciality indie rock".

And although the boys may have faltered somewhat with previous effort No No No, they're back stronger than ever with their latest, Gallipoli.

    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.

    Water way to go

    Brunch, Suthon Sukphisit, Published on 03/03/2019

    » There was once a time in Thailand when the population was small and the waters were full of life. Today, the country has nearly 70 million people, but the number of marine creatures is decreasing all the time. In the past, people had respect for the seas, lakes, rivers and their inhabitants.
