The band came to the label’s attention after a friend of the label, producer and sound engineer Josh Marcy, brought their attention of The Cranberries’ ‘Zombie’ to their attention.
Marcy journeyed to Thailand to record the band’s first album and also worked on their second.
“We were lucky to get the first album done in just a 24 hour visit, but I was determined to make it back to Lom Sak for a longer time and more prepared with pedals and mics. A year and a half after the first recording, I travelled back for Songkran-Thai New Year-and finally got to see in person these amazing musicians making crowds of all ages dance while pushing their sound system miles down the road. This spirit of celebration that originally made me want to visit comes through even better on this second album, recorded on the biggest holiday in Thailand,” he said in a statement.
Innovative Leisure also shared a free stream of the band’s ‘Sut Sanaen #3’;
Khun Narin Electric Phin Band’s membership is made up of a rotating group that ranges from high school kids to men in their 60’s. The band’s set-up involves setting up at the hosting household in the morning and playing low-key sets throughout the morning, working in covers of foreign songs.
During this time, the beer and whiskey is flowing freely. After a mid-day banquet, the band will lead a parade through the neighborhood, picking up more members, as they make their way to the local temple.
Khun Narin Electric Phin Band uses a custom-made PA system consisting of eight loudspeaker horns mounted atop a large bass cabinet.
