this week, a pleng luk krung offering at last! and from a singer i know very little about. from what i understand, however, phanthiwa sinrattanan was an actress as well, and often sang for the films in which she starred. this collection is headed off by her theme to "theptida doi" which i believe is an old drama about ethnic minority hill-tribe peoples (though this apparently has no bearing on the music). the rest of the album is a sampling of cosmopolitan luk krung, the more consciously western of the old thai pop styles. one of the great things about luk krung is the stylistic diversity in its western borrowings; it's not unusual to hear sweeping cinematic orchestration, big band crooning, latin dance-craze beats, twangy americana and hawai'ian-inspired exotica sounds in the space of a few tracks, all interpolated through thai melodic and rhythmic sensibilities. needless to say, a lot of fun!
