An awesome soundtrack

To go with his haunting, moody film, Matt Dillon has compiled a great soundtrack that blends classic 1960s Cambodian pop and rock with some other ancient Western sounds. The crowning achievement is getting the LA band Dengue Fever to record a cover of Joni Mitchell's Both Sides Now. You haven't heard this song until you've heard it sung in its native Khmer by Dengue Fever's Cambodian lead singer. Other standout tracks are by Ros Sereysothea, a Cambodian woman singer whose voice is incomparable. The first time I heard her singing Wait Ten Months, backed by a proto-punk combo, I thought my head was going to explode. If you're a fan of eclectic soundtracks as I am, then get this album.

good stuff

For fans of classic Cambodian 60s rock, here are some gems by Ros Sereysothea, Pen Ran and Sin Sisamouth. Dengue Fever also does some amazing covers of Ros' music as well as their own work, so check them out as well. By the way, it's a great movie.

Great Soundtrack.

Not only is this one of my favorite films, but it's also one of the best soundtracks, especially "Dear 5"
