    Sit back, dig The Cambodian Space Project, and be prepared to be impressed. Very impressed.

    The Cambodian Space Project delivers recharged versions of tunes from pre-war legends like Sin Sisamouth and Ros Sereysothea, with added fuzz and fun.

    There's plenty of weird, surrealist fun to be had on their debut album.

    It's upbeat, unusual and accomplished, an Asian rock 'n' roll space odyssey indeed.

    CSP original tracks like "Mean Visa Kmean Bai (Have Visa, No Have Rice)" are a testament to the groovy (and peaceful) "golden age" of Khmer pop.

    Their bluesy approach doesn't draw anything truly rich and strange from their vintage Cambodian material.
