Review: Ratatat Live @ Live RCA, Bangkok

When you think of a modern rock show, it’s not likely that you think of lasers blasting through the audience and tripped out images illuminating an eight metre LED panel. But then again, most rock acts aren’t Ratatat.

Crush of the Day: Milo Greene – ‘Cutty Love’

I know the post says Crush of the Day, but Milo Greene has been my crush for weeks – months even. I’ve basically babbled about the indie folk quintet to my friends and acquaintances (strangers, even) so I see no point why you guys shouldn’t hear about them too.  Composed of four members beautifully harmonizing on vocals: Robbie Arnett, Graham […]

Interview: The Great Spy Experiment (SG)

In the greying margins of pop-based indie and new-age rock, many bands find it hard to remain afloat among the masses of like-minded, similar-sounding music-makers from across the globe. Luckily, post-pop aficionados Fandy Ruzak, Khairyl Hashim, Magdelene Han and Saiful Idris of The Great Spy Experiment do not fall into this category. Harnessing elements of pop sensibility and an integrated […]

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This stereotype, while it accurately describes many musicians that shared DNA in the early 20th century, has gradually been replaced by a more “modern” approach […]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: Choi Sai Ho (HK)

Most things fade in time, and musical instruments are certainly no exception. It is for this reason that Violinists are often reminded of their place in the music industry – either as assets to the preservation of classical symphonies, or as a knee-slapping addition to the average barnyard folk band. Generally speaking, solo Violinists are somewhat limited. It takes a […]

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 White Eyes (TW)

Like fashion, musical trends also go in and out of popularity. In the 90’s, it was all about commercial pop, Nirvana and the occasional boy band. The 80’s gave us synthesizers and bad hair. The 70’s however, spawned the birth of punk and gritty, high-charged, low-fi rock – and this is where The White Eyes draw their limitless reams of […]

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.
