    Anthems for the end of the world

    Brunch, Chanun Poomsawai, Published on 24/03/2019

    » If you happen to recall the indie explosion that came and went during the mid-noughties, you're most likely to recall how UK math-rockers Foals were perched right on the forefront alongside the now-nowhere-to-be-found groups like Kasabian, Hard-Fi and Maxïmo Park. Although not the first band to come up with it, they're largely responsible for spreading the gospel of that intricate, tightly-wound guitar work that's gone on to more or less define the genre. Over time, the Foals' signature hectic romp that was the backbone of their 2008 landmark debut, Antidotes, has transformed into something a little more polished and more mature. Subtle sonic shifts can already be detected on their second LP, Total Life Forever (how much of a revelation is Spanish Sahara?), and even more so on the subsequent records, the unabashedly potent Holy Fire and What Went Down.

    Brunch, Tatat Bunnag, Published on 24/03/2019

    » Netflix's latest feature film Triple Frontier sees a group of ex-Special Forces operatives go on a clandestine mission in South America armed to their eyeballs with guns and explosives.


    To hell with the middle ground

    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". This is just a fancy way of saying that the music is unlike your typical indie sound. Beirut are masters when it comes to injecting world music elements into their repertoire, which has accumulated into a sizeable discography since their 2006 debut Gulag Orkestar. And although the boys may have faltered somewhat with previous effort No No No, they're back stronger than ever with their latest, Gallipoli.

    » In Thai culture, certain ceremonies are regarded as extremely important because they are carried out once in a lifetime. These ceremonies usually have set patterns to be carried on properly from one generation to the next.


    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.
