Dengue Fever have never been shy about occupying a niche, Mojo described them as “the world’s premier Cambodian psychedelic rock band” although the LA Times preferred to see them as – “Sexy and eclectic, it’s world music for the cool kids”.
“In The Ley Lines” is the new monthly album available exclusively from Society of Sound. It’s a superb set of unreleased tracks that were recorded at Real World – some live and some in the studio – and mixed at Real World and the band’s studio in LA.
The tracks, which amount to an album’s worth of material at more than 40+ minutes of music include: “The Province” (new song), “Tiger Phone Card” (new arrangement), “Mr. Orange” (new arrangement), “Hold My Hips” (new arrangement), “Doo Wop” (never-before-recorded studio version), “Pow Pow” (live), “Sober Driver” (live), “New Years Eve” (live), “Seeing Hands” (live) and “One Thousand Tears of a Tarantula” (live).
They really do sound like no-one else.
Society of Sound members also get a stunning compilation of new virtuoso guitar music from the BGS label (British Guitar Society). Compiled by Society of Sound artist Tom Kerstens, it comprises of 10 tracks interpreted by some of the best international guitar players today which all sound fantastic on a good pair of speakers.
As usual we’d really llike to know what you thought of these two vastly different but equally interesting albums.
