ever wonder what a traditional psychedelic kabuki-freak tet nguyen dan festival looks like? ...yeah, probably doesn't exist. but maybe. dengue fever's album "sleepwalking through the mekong" bounces between out-of-this-world zippy poppy little lacey numbers and more traditional sounding (what the fuck do i know?) tunes. the singing is in khmer and english and, contrary to what you might believe after hearing the album, the band is not from cambodia, they're from l.a. however, many of the tracks are covers of 60's cambodian pop songs, so don't worry too much about the faker element... because they're not.
