Cambodian Space Project
Aside from the usual side-effects of hypnotic music — tapping toes, pumping heads, swaying shoulders — one of the interesting results of listening to the Cambodian Space Project is the onset of what feels vaguely like a psychoactive hallucination. They’ve got a delightful weirdness factor (at least to unseasoned Western ears). You feel transported. But where? Angkor Wat? The 1960s? Thanks to front-lady Srey Channthy’s captivating voice — part feline mewl, part tuneful warble — CSP’s music, which they call “space rock” is as fun to hear as to dance.
