The Sound of Siam volume 2 - Molam & Luk Thung Isan from North-East Thailand Tumble Weave Tumbleweave BlogOver three years after the first of Soundway’s ventures in to the long lost world of Thai funk and country music, selector Chris Menist has put together a follow up compilation. Volume 2 shifts the focus to a specific region of Thailand, and incorporates music from a 12 year period ending in 1982.

The official press release for the LP goes into some detail about the backgrounds behind the genres included, and the way in which the styles developed sonically and stylistically.

In advance of the full release (scheduled for 26th May) Soundway have provided a sneak peak into the contents via the super infectious and relentless track below.
