Description

Paradise Bangkok Molam International Band's new album is something special - not only does it continue to shine a light on the beautiful tradition of molam music but particularly with this album they weave lots of the other music they love - making for something even more beautiful and unique."

Dan Snaith (Caribou/Daphni)

 

'Exit Planet Lam’... provides that idyllic marriage of global ideas and local foundation as it balances organic percussion with minimal dub elements to stunning effect" 

Gilles Peterson BBC 6 Music/WWFM

The inspiration for this, the second LP from The Paradise Bangkok Molam International Band, is the musical experimentation that has happened at their seminal venue in Bangkok, Studio Lam, and how that has influenced their sound. Whether it's the alternative nights featuring individual band members (Paradise Bangkok Rhythm Section, Kammao & friends, Electric Piphat Band) or sets from other artists and DJs like Andrew Ashong, Miles Cleret, Hugo Mendez, Awesome Tapes From Africa, Rabih Beaini, Kirk Degiorgio, and Phuong Dan. The fact that Studio Lam has become a musical focal point for the city of Bangkok, has inevitably had an impact on the band itself, and this is reflected in the presence of different vibes and styles of the LP. The sound of 'Planet Lam' has been shaped by late night jamming gigs, home made ya-dong, run ins with the police, and the swapping of ideas with like-minded local musicians and artists. The bands debut was hugely well received and won support from the likes of Four Tet, Caribou and Gilles Peterson. The band have recently embarked on a headline European tour including Glastonbury.
