Thai Pop Spectacular

Sublime Frequencies continues to peddle obscuro ambrosia for us globally minded audiophiles. Thai Pop Spectacular, 1960s – 1980s is the label's 32nd compilation, and, well, it's pretty self-explanatory. If you follow Subliminal Sounds' Thai Beat A-Go-Go series, you'll know what to expect here: goony, off-center disco, funk, rock & roll, doo wop and pop standards balladry. Here are two of the album's whopping 21 tracks:

Chailai Chaiyata & Sawanee Patana – "Kwuan Tai Duew Luk Puen" [tr. "You Should Die by Bullets"]

Man City Lion – "Na Doo" [tr. "Very Striking Girl"]

If you're anything like me, Thai Pop Spectacular may very well end up being your favorite reissues release of the year. Cop it here.
