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This stereotype, while it accurately describes many musicians that shared DNA in the early 20th century, has gradually been replaced by a more “modern” approach […]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