FEATURING THE Mastadong, a half Fender Jazzmaster, half Chapai Dong Veng (a traditional Cambodian two-string guitar), Dengue Fever’s Cannibal Courtship evokes pure worldbeat ecstasy. One minute, they’re rocking shout-outs like Cake, circa 1997 (“Family Business”), the next (“Uku”) they’re adrift in 1975 Phnom Penh: fuzz-wah guitars, spooky flute, and Chhom Nimol’s wailing vocals creating an ethereal sound collage. Recorded at the band’s home studio as well as The Village in Santa Monica, CA, Cannibal Courtship spins Cambodian pop into time-warp dimensions.
