Strangers From The Far East
Rough Trade Album of the Month - January 2019
The stunning new album from Thailand's Khana Bierbood, available here on LP and CD.
Khana Bierbood (translated as Strange Brew in Thai), formed in 2012 in Bangsaen beach in Thailand. After hours of jamming together they started to create their unique sound influenced by 60’s surf music, 70’s garage rock with Thai traditional music. This is their first full length LP. Produced by Go Kurasawa (Kikagaku Moyo) in Tsubame studio in Tokyo. 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. Another topnotch cut 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.
CD - Digipack.
LP - Black Vinyl.
