      Another tip top album

      Dengue Fever's second album Escape from the Dragon House is by far the most instrumental of the band's three albums so far and in some ways the most experimental too.

      Where the album catered mostly to covering Cambodian greats and Venus on Earth had numerous fun English language numbers, this album has a more hypnotic sound to it. It includes the excellent song "One Thousand Tears of a Tarantula" which is a brilliant composition by the band with a real Cambodian flavour to it.

      The song was my first introduction to the band when I came across it at the end of a series of "Weeds", this album has a great balance between long psychedelic rock tracks which take you into unknown territory and pop songs with catchy hooklines and choruses, even if they are generally in Khmer - they'll have you rocking out in minutes like a bearded bloke after a bottle of vodka in a Chinese restaurant.

      I've really grown to like all 3 of Dengue Fever's albums and can't say which one I prefer, this is definitely the wildest and at times also the heaviest too. It's well worth a listen, some of their freshest work to date not that they ever become stale!
