The Paradise Bangkok Molam International Band
“Paradise Bangkok Molam International Band’s new album is something special” Dan Snaith (Caribou/Daphni)
The Paradise Bangkok Molam International Band are set to release their second record “Planet Lam” on the Studio Lam Label on 21st October. This follows on from their 2014 album “21st Century Molam”. Inspiration for the LP came from label co-owner Maft Sai’s club of the same name, a vibrant and unique live venue that has become a musical focal point for the city of Bangkok and thus, inevitably, had a large impact on the band. Late night jamming, copious amounts of homemade ya-dong, run-ins with the police, and the constant back-and-forth of creative ideas between like-minded local musicians and artists have all fed into the creative process, as well as regular sets from international artists and DJs such as Andrew Ashong, Miles Cleret, Rabih Beaini, Macka B, Awesome Tapes From Africa and Hugo Mendez, who have all passed through the city in the last 2 years.

It finally happened; somebody called the cops on Interpol.
The long arm of the law caught up with Daniel Kessler, Paul Banks, and Sam Fogarino in 2017, as they worked on a new album inside the Yeah Yeah Yeahs’rehearsal space in Manhattan. Even in its infancy, Marauder was shaping up to be a beast; an early practice session was so vigorous, it resulted in Sam hitting the drums so hard that he busted his kick drum. “That rarely happens, even with heavy-hitters,” says Sam.
Cigarettes After Sex
Cigarettes After Sex is an American ambient pop band formed in 2008, from El Paso, Texas. The band is known for their ethereal and often dream-like musical style, lyrics often based on the themes of romance and love, as well as Gonzalez’s ethereal and “androgynous” voice. While marketed as an ambient pop band, Cigarettes After Sex are also considered to be shoegaze, dream pop and slowcore. The band’s debut extended play (EP), I., was released in 2012, with the song “Nothing’s Gonna Hurt You Baby” eventually becoming a sleeper hit through commercial licensing. After the release of the standalone single “Affection” in 2015, the band released their self-titled debut studio album on June 2017 to positive reviews.
Combat Sports is the sound of The Vaccines being The Vaccines. Their fourth album is the sound of one of the defining British rock and roll bands of their generation at full throttle, setting aside pop experiments and concentrating on what caused the rabid excitement at their arrival in 2010. Combat Sports is a record of guitars, of brevity, of speed, of breathless excitement.
Shame are a British post-punk band originally from South London. Their debut album Songs of Praise was released on 12th January 2018. The group has received critical acclaim from publications including NME, Paste, and Clash.

Sunday 11th November
Dan Snaith’s Canadian outfit Caribou is regarded as one of the most iconic and recognisable names on the contemporary electronic circuit. Having followed up 2010’s universally adored album ‘Swim’ with the Grammy nominated UK top-ten chart album ‘Our Love’ in 2014, Caribou have spent the last two years touring the world. Their live shows are energetic and immersive experiences. The sound of Caribou sold out stages everywhere (Brixton Academy - London), Olympia - Paris, Columbiahalle - Berlin, Sydney Opera House) and provided the most thrilling festival headline slots of the season (Primavera, Field Day, Parklife, Coachella). 2018 will see Caribou return to the big stages on a few selected festivals in Europe. The line up finds Dan joined on stage by Ryan Smith, Brad Weber and John Schmersal.
