♫♪  Juu & G. Jee ジュウ&G・ジェー - “Time 2 Yam〜深夜0時、僕は2回火を付ける (feat. 鎮座DOPENESS & MMM) (2ยาม)”

To balance the possibilities of the present with the capabilities of history. To try, a radical imaginary. From Thailand, via Japan, some contemporary luk thung, colloquially called Thai Country, which has been somewhat stagnant, say the publishers, since the 1990s, but now tricked out with singular vocals, bonging timbres and effusive signatures, and that pervasive Western-style country theme, weed.

It’s cheeky, it’s freaky, it’s glam. It’s like a luxury car at a cat show. It’s as bright as wasabi and Fanta. It’s to be found on the album New Luk Thung out digitally, on CD, and LP from Osaka’s EM Records. Click through the audio player to hear some more samples and to read EM’s very informative notes.
