Son of P.M., The – “Hey Klong Yao! : Essential Collection of Thai Music…1960s” – [Em Records]

MSTiZA   3/9/2011   12-inch, International

The Son of P.M. has been featured on several Thai collections form Sublime Frequencies. This thai sound is full band of traditional musicians. You hear the guitar, organ, and what seems to be wind instruments, the ranad, hand percussion, & more. The elegance of these songs lie in the instrumentation. You will hear the trance of molam mixed with myanmar; eastern sounds with explosive percussive elements that stay true to the claim that the sound is modernized thai of the 60’s. It’s layered and folk driven. This is more roots than covers as we have seen “the sons..” do in other collections.
