Normally, bands classified under the heading “World Music” make our skin crawl (and break out in hives, eczema, disfiguring acne, et al.). But L.A.-based, Cambodian-American band Dengue Fever‘s particular blend of surf rock, psychedelia, indie cool and retro vocal stylings–courtesy of gorgeous lead singer Chhom Nimol (that’s Miz Chhom to you)–puts it in a category all its own. We promise that their latest album, Venus on Earth, will be the perfect soundtrack to your hot, hazy, stoned summer.
Get more worldly and listen to Dengue Fever on MySpace here.
If you’re in the L.A. area, go see Dengue Fever this Saturday, June 21, at the KCRW Make Music Pasadena event for FREE (The Raveonettes, Kinky, The Little Ones and others are also in the line-up).
