    A companion piece to the same-named documentary, SLEEPWALKING is an aural journey through the history of Cambodian rock, curated by Dengue Fever. The soundtrack melds classic Khmer roots sounds (think a more mystical Asian take on what Latin artists like Santana interpreted through a jazz dialect) of Cambodian legends such as Sinn Sisamouth with new, experimental fusions by Dengue Fever himself and local luminaries like Kong Nai and Tep Mary. It's often stunning to hear the integration of traditional blues and folk on newer tracks like "Master Kong Nai," but the real revelation is how contemporary the archival cuts sound, especially Sinn Sisamouth & Ros Sereysothea's joyful "Mou Pei Na," a slice of dub-influenced rhythm highlighted by sublimely weird dual-gender vocals.

  • Critic Reviews
    CMJ - "Dengue Fever's distinctively muddy sound, slinky and loose, dominates the record."
    Dirty Linen (p.41) - "[The] soundtrack features plenty of the group's own music, sort of a blend of Cambodian pop and Nuggets-era organ-and-guitar psychedelia."
