9/10 Mike 30 May 2014
I've just had a trip to '70s Turkey courtesy of Twimo's 'Bosporus Bridges' comp and now I'm heading over to Thailand 1970-82 for the second instalment of Soundway's brilliant Sound of Siam compilations. It's a mixed blessing being handed these exotic compilations to review because I'm just a grunge kid from the Yorkshire suburbs really.   As usual I'm in thrall to their cleverly layered melodies and hypnotic polyrhythmic grooves with flowing vocal babblings and twiddly electric guitars and lively flute tooting and string bowing. Thankfully Soundway have done a lot of the homework for you, with extensive liner notes to accompany the 19 cuts here. I'm getting a slight childish giggle from the fact that the word "Molam" has been misspelt as "Mowlam" on the spine, but jokes aside this is an enlightening and thoroughly likeable compilation, perfect for a BBQ, or just sitting in the garden and reading the paper on a warm afternoon.
