LA based band Dengue Fever has a somewhat familiar sound. Dark, yet astonishingly friendly and pop-y, they remind us at times of a Cambodian-pop meets surf rock version of the Cocteau Twins. At other times they don't remind us of anyone or anything. Lead vocalist Chhom Nimol, accompanies the Californian brothers Holtzman with near perfection. Their third LP, titled Venus On Earth is (sort of) streaming at Rhapsody (if you have your free listens or are a subscriber).

Below is a trailer for a documentary about the bands visit to Cambodia (native home of Nimol), titled "Sleepwalking Through the Mekong". Under that you'll find tour dates. Mercury Lounge looks like one of those can't miss shows.
