Interview: 橙草 Orange Grass (TW)

Famed writer Alice Walker once said; “In nature, nothing is perfect and everything is perfect. Trees can be contorted, bent in weird ways, but they are still beautiful.” And, who can argue with that? Nature is all encompassing, and does not adhere to the rules of colour, mood and structure – much like the raw sounds of Taipei three-piece Orange […]

Interview: B-Quartet (SG)

Family-bands that tour the countryside have always been associated with the worst kind of stereotype, conjuring painful images of cheesy lyrics about “sticking together,” a lot of frolicking, too many harmonies and the occasional concertina. This stereotype, while it accurately describes many musicians that shared DNA in the early 20th century, has gradually been replaced by a more “modern” approach […]

Interview: Silverbus (TW)

Where much of the South-East Asian indie music scene is dominated by guitar-driven pop riffs, looping vocals and weird amalgamations of indefinable noises, it is refreshing to encounter a band whose sound relies on more than simply blasting listeners off the backs of their chairs. Silverbus, hailing from Taiwan and dabbling in every style from rock and acoustic, to moody, […]

Interview: The Cambodian Space Project (KH)

If you happen to be in a state where you can picture yourself doing a psychedelic moonwalk through the fabric of time, clutching a bunch of 60’s rock records in one hand and a glitter bomb in the other, then you will likely have some idea of what it is to listen to the Cambodian Space Project. Hailing from various […]

Interview: The Universal Moment (JP/TW)

Japanese alt-rockers the Universal Moment are a rising force on the local and international scene; comprised from well-travelled, American-raised brothers Yu and Sebastian, along with drummer and keyboardist Shihori and Shigeo, the group have surrendered their surnames and enjoyed increasing success since the release of their first record, “The Reminder” in 2009. After growing through a series of transitions stemming […]

Interview: The Dorques (PH)

How do you define ‘cool?’ It’s not a question that is often asked, but it is one that should surely have an answer. By definition, being in band is cool. Music, generally, can be cool too. But, how do you define the sound of a band that, by definition, are the antithesis of anything to do with coolness at all? […]

Interview: Little Fox (TH)

For many a decade, tourists and locals alike have explored every inch of natural and unnatural wonders of Thailand – and, who could blame them? The tyre-beaten roads and well-snorkeled waters of the country’s top spots still continue to draw crowds – which, while it is a testament to the country’s ongoing allure, leads many to the sad realization that […]

Interview: They Will Kill Us All (MY)

In an age devoid of simplicity and overrun with technology, the global music industry is perpetually faced with an audience of diminished attention spans. Everyone is switched on, logged in and doing fifty things at once; music, it seems, must be incredibly concise, or run the risk of being lost in the mess. As artists try fruitlessly to cram as […]
