The Los Angeles-based Cambodian and American band Dengue Fever released their first album, (2003's self-titled debut) with no idea how it would be received. Was Khmer-rock, or the very idea of covering lost classic Cambodian songs, even something that would resonate with music fans? Would anyone in the indie community want to hear songs in Khmer? Would anyone in the world music community want to hear psych or garage rock? More than a decade later, the answer to that question is an emphatic YES.
In fact, the reaction to Dengue Fever's music was so strong in the early 2000s that the band's sophomore album, 2005's Escape from Dragon House, was an attempt to steady the waves their debut caused by expanding their boundaries writing original material. All the while, they still needed to keep the key elements of their debut intact. Oh, and could you dance to it? Again, an emphatic and resounding "Yes!" from the sweaty bodies and revelry at shows from Europe to Asia, Russia to Brazil, and from the United Arab Emirates to Australia & New Zealand.
Today, partly because of those first two albums, Dengue Fever are recognized for their trademark blend of sixties Cambodian pop and psychedelic rock. Later albums like Venus on Earth, Cannibal Courtship and the lesser known In The Ley Lines cemented the band as true global pioneers who are constantly evolving their sound forward.
Red Light Cameras started as a Pixies-inspired garage band called Evol Lived in 2010. After the addition of powerhouse vocalist Amanda Machon in 2011, the band took a soulful turn to become a more blues-inspired garage pop group. The group has been playing ever since, supporting such acts at Dum Dum Girls, Said the Whale, Priests, Jessica Hernandez and the Deltas, and Girl in a Coma. Their debut, self-titled album was recorded at ¿Que? Studio in Albuquerque and garnered them Local iQ's Best Band in Albuquerque. Their follow-up EP For Those Who Favor Fire garnered them a New Mexico Music Award for Best Pop Album of 2013 and a repeat Best Band award from the Local iQ. The band is characterized by infectious hooks and bouncing beats that are destined to have you on the dance floor. Red Light Cameras put on a high energy performance that will leave you coming back for more.
