Familiar with Cambodian pop music from the
60s and 70s at all? Perhaps you’ve come
across the Chlangden label recordings, or
something like that, or maybe you’ve heard
the LA band Dengue Fever or their compilations?
Well, either way you have to check out this band
NEUNG PHAK from Oakland, CA. They mix that awesome
combination of Cambodian traditional instrumentation &
rocknroll and psych music and add a hint of
noisiness and freakout-ery to the whole mix.
