Khun Narin – ‘II’

New from LA-based record label Innovative Leisure this week: Khun Narin’s Electric Phin Band – II. The Northern Thai group play psychedelic-sounding music called phin prayuk, with a 3-stringed lute called phin. Band membership is fluid and includes young kids through to people in their ’60s and the format includes marching along with a mobile PA system. Pretty amazing stuff.

Booooooom Correspondent

So my talented friend Jeff Hamada, the really nice man who runs Booooooom, recently got invited to attend Barcelona Design Week. He can’t make it, so he’s offering up a golden chance for anyone to apply to become the official Booooooom Correspondent for the week – traveling to Spain, visiting the event, reporting back to Booooooom. Who wouldn’t want to do that? PS Barcelona is amazing.
