"Paradise Bangkok Molam International Band's new album is something special" Dan Snaith (Caribou/Daphni) 

'Exit Planet Lam’... provides that idyllic marriage of global ideas and local foundation as it balances organic percussion with minimal dub elements to stunning effect" Gilles Peterson BBC 6 Music/WWFM

Follow up LP to the acclaimed debut '21st Century Molam', inspiration for the album came from label co-owner Maft Sai’s club of the same name, a vibrant and unique live venue that has become a musical focal point for the city of Bangkok and thus, inevitably, had a large impact on the band. 

Whilst molam is still the musical bedrock of the overall sound, the band found inspiration in a number of different groups while recording. The Stooges influenced the urgency and drive of 'India Chia Muay', whereas the ambient tones of Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe, as well as the quiet menace of Raime can be heard on 'Exit Planet Lam'.
