    Giddy up, boy

    Brunch, Chanun Poomsawai, Published on 14/04/2019

    » On Mitski's latest album Be The Cowboy, the cowboy image that's classically reserved for American white males is, even though for a fleeting moment, suspended and transferred to the Japanese-American singer-songwriter. According to Mitski, this is part of her mantra, "be the cowboy you wish to see in the world", a joke with herself that she uses to combat feelings of imposter syndrome. Though meant as a joke, it's a kind of joke that digs deep into the firmly rooted notions of masculinity, race and femininity.

    Once in a lifetime

    » The sky in Mae Hong Son was grey with haze, blanketing the province day and night. The smell from forest fires and the open-air burning of farm waste hurt the nose. The polluted air hurt the eyes. But the ongoing air crisis couldn't ruin the celebratory spirit of Ban Pha Bong community as it hosted Poi Sang Long, the annual mass novice ordination ceremony of the Tai Yai ethnic group.

    » The cooking-oil industry is like an ongoing battle between various types of oils -- palm, soybean, corn, sunflower, rice-bran, canola and olive. Getting more and more serious every day, the oil war doesn't seem to have a winner or loser when it comes to benefits.

    J-pop gone rogue

    Brunch, Chanun Poomsawai, Published on 07/04/2019

    » Anyone who's been to Japan (or spent a decent amount of time on the internet) would have probably come across T-shirts with puzzling or badly translated English. Perusing CHAI's pastel-hued website gives you a similar experience except that everything actually makes sense -- "We Are New Exciting Onna (female) Band From Japan! NEO KAWAII ! COMPLEX IS ART!," its meta description announces. A click and a quick scroll down also give you an overview on the group's "NEO KAWAII" ethos, which essentially goes against any notions of the classic kawaii ("You don't need to have big eyes or have skinny legs to be KAWAII! There should be many more types of KAWAII, and everyone is KAWAII in her own way … Our insecurities make us who we are. The insecurities become art. KAWAII is a never-ending journey!").

    Returning to form

    Brunch, Chanun Poomsawai, Published on 31/03/2019

    » It's hard to believe it's been nearly two decades since Ladytron unleashed its own version of electropop to the world. Hailing from Liverpool, the quartet of Helen Marnie, Mira Aroyo, Daniel Hunt and Reuben Wu first introduced themselves with their 2001 debut 604, a solid 16-track collection heavily influenced by the likes of Kraftwerk, New Order and Depeche Mode. In a period when the UK charts sounded a little uninspired (the No.1 singles ranged from JLo's Love Don't Cost A Thing to Limp Bizkit's Rollin' to Afroman's Because I Got High -- you get the idea), Ladytron's simmering cauldron of synth-pop and electro-industrial almost felt like an act of rebellion.
