    More play, please

    Brunch, 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.

    The art of being

    Brunch, Chanun Poomsawai, Published on 14/10/2018

    » Having ditched her successful career as a young start-up CEO to pursue music independently, Peeralada Sukawat, mononymously known as Pyra, has a lot to prove both to herself and to her family, who'd rather she took up a 9-to-5 job. "It's more about self-actualisation. I want to see something I expect of myself happen. The more people tell me I can't, the more I want to do it," she asserted in her 2016 interview with the Bangkok Post's now-defunct Saturday supplement Muse, wherein she talked candidly about depression and her frayed relationship with her mother. The piece further illuminates her self-produced debut EP Stray, a stunning release that, while deservedly vouched for by Apple Music Thailand, somehow failed to woo a local radio station because "they couldn't figure out what category I fell into".

    Gone, but not yet forgotten

    Brunch, Suthon Sukphisit, Published on 14/10/2018

    » Many aspects of the Central Region's cuisine have been lost over the years. Reasons include the death of older generations, a lack of "cultural handover" between old and young, and, for some dishes, complicated cooking methods that require a lot of effort put into grilling or stewing and for which many people nowadays simply lack time or motivation.

    Remember her name

    Brunch, Chanun Poomsawai, Published on 07/10/2018

    » "Maybe this the album you listen to in your car/ When you driving home late at night/ Really questioning every god, religion, Kanye, bitches" Noname knowingly begins in the opening salvo of Self. And when she continues to quip, "The baby ain't really yours, this really for babies teething/ And chicken wings under-seasoned/ Y'all really thought a bitch couldn't rap huh? Maybe this your answer for that," the tone for her second studio outing, Room 25, is officially set.

    Dodging the bullet

    Brunch, Gary Boyle, Published on 07/10/2018

    » One of the best things about travelling in Japan is the fast and convenient Shinkansen. The bullet trains can whisk you from Tokyo to Kyoto in as little as two hours and 20 minutes. Or you could, like 34-year old Gabriel Camelin, a video and photography lecturer at Silpakorn University, do the same trip on your bicycle. The route through the mountains is 570km and can be done, if you're as brave and fit as Gabriel, in just seven days.

    Low's Highest Highs

    Brunch, Chanun Poomsawai, Published on 30/09/2018

    » Over the past two decades, not only have Minnesota's indie rockers Low carved out their own signature soundscape, they've also thrived in it. Their sound, largely existing in the slowcore territory, has a quiet way of sneaking up on the listener despite its surface minimalism. Now, after 11 fantastic albums under the collective belt, the threesome of Alan Sparhawk, Mimi Parker and Steve Garrington return with Double Negative, the band's 12th studio effort that also marks their 25th year in the business.
