Instinct and Memory – Visual Artist Statement

We still are holding several images until the release date. Emilie Elizabeth, one of the primary visual artists of Instinct and Memory, in her own words… When we first started discussing the concept for this shoot, Surachai had a few reference images floating around and had become interested in somehow incorporating Sex Magic. After a […]

Surachai – Heavy Mask

Heavy Mask by Surachai Digital release date: July 7th, 2015. Estimated vinyl ship date: mid-August 2015. Surachai Bandcamp Weight In Minimalism Leaving Heavy Mask sparse left me in doubt for several weeks.

Don’t Count On It Reviews Embraced

I first covered Surachai’s EP To No Avail a couple of years ago and was pretty impressed with it after reading a couple of good things about it. I haven’t really been keeping tabs on the project since then though and was somewhat taken aback when I was told about this new full-length being released. […]

Tiny Mix Tapes Reviews Embraced

Embodiments of every genre gather for six weeks of summer fun: Hardcore grills burgers as Ska guzzles root beer; Classic Rock steers the boat as Indie Rock trails behind on an inner tube; “Where’s Seapunk?” asks Vaporwave, and everyone has a good laugh. EuroHouse runs around the grounds passing out invitations to a Memorial Day […]

MeatMeatMetal Reviews Embraced

If metal had more artists half as adventurous as Surachai Sutthisasanakul, the terrain would be a lot more exciting to traverse. Over the course of three full-length albums and a handful of EPs, the Chicago-based artist has made some of the more perplexing and stimulating sounds the genre could boast, and he made these weird, […]

Popdose Reviews Embraced

The Hellgoat’s Take (8.5/10): Off-kilter for sure but in the case of Embraced, unlike his other records, he let outside musicians play with him and I think that helped reign in his vision nicer than on previous records. The three tracks on the disc are vicious and dark and definitely push the boundaries of the […]
