An album of memories and old spaces: Azmyl Yunor’s ‘ampang park’

In December 2017, widely renowned Malaysian lo-fi rocker and all-around troubadour Azmyl Yunor released ampang park, a whole album he recorded only on his phone. While some purists may scoff at that idea, the album is the epitome of independence and thriving all on your own.

It is the musician’s call to make something special and intimate, a gift for long-time fans and a treasure for newcomers to stumble upon. Where previous albums like Wilayah (2012) are summer-y and fun in all its noisy glory – with Was Was (2015) following closely in that tradition – ampang park is a pleasant, and big, leap away from all [...]

Dr Jason Leong: On Malaysian comedy, business flights and being ‘Ambitious’

The Definitive Rat Pack: For the swingers in all of us

Our era of the 2000s and 2010s has been a glorious mess in the age of the internet, with its avant garde styles, eclectic mix of music and chaotic meme humour. It’s wonderful in its own right but we are also a nostalgic generation, longing for the big trendsetting moves of the 80s and the psychedelia of the 70s (without all the racism and sexism of course). But many of us miss a time we’ve only ever heard of through record players and hit HBO shows: the classy, jazzy, martini club legacy of the 60s. Specifically, the swingin’ Rat Pack music of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr, Peter Lawford and Joey Bishop.
