Sade


Sade? I probably made jokes about her music in my youth. That was just naivete, though. Silky smooth.

Dengue Fever


Faithfully recreating Cambodian rock music from the 1960s while adding their own slightly psychedelic indie groove, Dengue Fever are a blast. Singer Chhom Nimol has one of the most amazing voices you'll ever hear. What's the saying... everything old is new again?

Azam Ali


More from the beautiful voice of Azam Ali. She's actually produced more music on her own than with Niyaz. It's all great stuff, from the minimalist ambience of Green Memories to the dark rock of Roseland.
