Boomkat Product Review:
Matt Sai and Chris Menist’s crack sqwad put a superb, psychedelic, dubbed-out, yet faithful slant on traditional Thai folk music.
“Inspiration for the LP, is the musical experimentation that has happened at Studio Lam, and how that has influenced our 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 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.”
