Track from an upcoming release on Jazzman. Some fuzzy psych Sitar action by a band called ‘The Sign of Four’, formaly known under the moniker ‘Natural Yogurt Band’, i believe. Whatever, out April 1st on 2x10inch. No joke.
This is the first in a series of compilations on key producers of modern molam music from Northeast Thailand.
In the 1960s, 1970s and 1980’s, these pioneers created an exciting, electric sound from the centuries-old folk music traditions of the region, releasing groove-laden vinyl gems that sound just as fresh and dynamic today as they did nearly fifty years ago. Up first is the legendary producer Theppabutr Satirodchompu, the man behind the modern molam sound.
