i suddenly miss the jim yoshii-pile-up.
a couple days ago i found my ‘homemade drugs‘ cd in the old long-forgotten drawer.
lotsa forgotten cds in there. i didn’t aware i got “elliott smith – xo” cd. i am also very unsure if i got “elliott smith – either/or” and “new radicals – maybe you’ve been brainwashed too” cd albums or not. i have always wanted to own these.
so now you know how well-organized i am? ; P
i buy cds and hide them in different corners/drawers/anywhere i could think of that moment, so that i wont get blame from my family for spending too much!
what i want to say here is, i think the jim yoshii pile-up (jypu) possibly split.. although there’s no confirmation or announcement from the band officially but it’s something like that.
Frankie (bass) plays in the Parish: Myspace
Noah (guitar) is in Meanest Man Contest: Myspace
Paul (voice) has solo project called Baby Panda: Myspace
it surprised me to know that Paul of jypu has solo project and esp since last year! where have i been?!? i had never heard of “baby panda” band before in my life! shame on me! ..being jypu’s fan!
Baby Panda – Some Horrible Miracle EP (jan 2008)
Baby Panda – Enforcer (july 21, 2007)
thats all i know.
i was crazy about bear-garden and have been missing the sound of good thai electro pop with that cute mix of xylophone. i gathered all albums i have and listen happily. Then, searched google, found out THERE’S NO PANDA RECORDS website T.T see for youself! here
แพนด้าขอปิดทำการแต่เพียงตอนนี้ เนื่องจากขาดคนทำงาน โปรดติดตามผลงานของศิลปินที่ทุกท่านชื่นชอบต่อไป
it is sad to see that a quality local record has no supporters to help with the website. i don’t even know if in a literal sense, only the website or does it include ‘panda records’ as integrity.
i also found p’june’s blogspot (june the bear: bear-garden) take a look
the new album of bear-garden is very interesting. it is the project of releasing single monthly for free download. the album is entitled “a friend like me, don’t be afraid” there is no tangible cd selling, it’ll be sweet if donation is made to the bear’s. read more here
last but not least, download bear-garden‘s song from new album for free at last.fm

While browsing randomly on Last.fm, Brazilian, Sao Paulo based Lab Musica excites the curiosity of me with the tag “rock lo-fi” and “free download” link I found on their page.
Everybody likes freebies. I admire all bands that provide free and higher than 96 kbps mp3 file of their own creativity. For the sake of their own, bands/artists should be open-minded and start considering this hate-or-love mp3 file format as one of the great marketing channels which possesses the best & fast ability to reach to the consumers’ ears! Alas, my own country, artists majorly do not think this way. “Pirate, pirate, pirate”–that’s what they can only think of.
Well, I talk too much now. Haha
Again the sweet Last.fm presently lets you download all promo songs of Lab Musica, there’s no band description there though.
I enjoy their lo-fi rock/alternative/indie music with the lead vox singing like he talks in his sleep!
i just checked my personal info on soulseek. it was last updated on mar 26, 2008 o.0

now you can see that what i listen to mostly include jazz and folk or something chilled out. i need something to calm me down.. for what just happened to me, it has put a great deep impact on me, emotionally. sounds pretty much cliched eh? sad but true. maybe it’s my karma?
And here goes some mainstream update
- James Blunt – All the lost souls [myspace]
am i sold out? probably..
James Blunt is okay, listenable. i used to dislike his voice alot, you can prove this by asking my friends (jane and som) while these two admire him, i’d always say something different.
last month i found myself crazily googling for both album releases by him after listening to that single titled “carry you home” on Met 107fm radio. and after listening to this 2nd album: all the lost souls, i’m satisfied and have changed attitude towards him.
well frankly, i have to warn you, the voice of james blunt can make you cranky if you listen to the album all the way through. it’s like all songs start to sound the same. i kind of love and hate his voice. i like to listen to some certain songs.
my point here is that i want to suggest you these 3 beautiful songs i love off this album: they are “carry you home“, “1973” and “shine on“. open your heart and try listening to his songs.
am i sold out? probably.. that five-month period of soulseek absence explains. hahaha!
i have always had in mind to recommend MET radio to my blog readers but never get to do it for real. so this time, it has got to be listed here! and NOOO i do not get paid for writing this! i like it personally! hell yeah!
MET is my no.1 thailand’s radio station that plays international songs. i always tune to this channel if i ever switch the radio on. champ, my hip friend @fujitsu is the one who introduced me into this channel ^.^ thanks to him. he didn’t really introduce it to me literally, but he played this radio station while he drove and i was amazed to hear many songs i know of (in indie sense) at that time i had no interest in local radio stations, so it kinda inspired me to be more open-minded about radio.
i call it “a channel of diverse music types”. get prepared to hear hip-hop, indie rock, brit pop, folk, mainstream r&b and even some emo punk!
my comment: at times non-stop r&b irritates me, some deejays play heaps of ‘em in one session
