This sounds like the dusty soundtrack to a long-forgotten film that has Francois Hardy backed by Davie Allan’s Arrows heading off to the distant exotic world of the east.
This is the first album from the band who formed in Bangsaen Beach in Thailand. It’s produced by Go Kurasawa (Kikagaku Moyo) and was recorded in Tokyo in Tsubame Studios.
Gob Yutthana plays guitar and sings, Jay Rathchanon sings backing vocals and plays bass, Ohm Chanutpong drums, Peep Sirimit plays keyboard and percussion and Mo Kittinan plays guitar. Uber-tremeloed guitar riddled with the twangy melodies of 1960s style soundtrack-esque party time frat-rock garage style. These are great pop songs with magic sprinkles of Eastern soundtracks, Spaghetti Western’s spacious twang and some grooving yé-yé sounds.
Starting with the track ‘Rustic Song’ from the jet sound at the beginning you will realise you have arrived in Thailand. ‘Starshine’ has the surf vibe but different to the West coast surf music. The topnotch is the B1 track ‘Badtrip’ where you can hear lo-fi garage with heavy doomy fuzz jam.
For fans of: Oh Sees, La Luz or Thai’s morlam music and Dengue Fever, or maybe even if you like the Shadows and you've got a fuzz fetish.
