Album Review

Reviewed 2005-11-08
For fans of Cambodia Rocks and Thai Beat a Go Go, heres some retro 60’s tinged hipster pop fronted by a female Cambodian pop star on vocals. I think this is their 2nd release, their first being much lauded in the indie-underground circles. Most songs have a funky beat thing happening, all plunder Cambodian pop music and style. The 60’s Vox organ and Cambodian/SE Asian vocs and eastern/minor toned melodies make it pretty distinct, could almost be filed under world if this wasn’t the creation of LA uber-hipsters. Reminds me of Calexico in that instead of plundering indigenous Sonoran music they’ve stumbled upon Cambodian. Pick any.

1) minor toned upbeat urgent
2) funky thing happening, sax solo
3) male vocs in front this time
4) lots of sax and organ
5) different from previous, slow ballady acoustic guitar
6) upbeat urgent, mancini “spy music” quality
7) very 60’s
8) more chill, guitar is a bit more twangy, dudes singing in English, passes as mopey indie
9) instrumental
10) FCC “shit”, trying to be Soft Machine
11) slower acoustic ballad, sung in English
