'Escape from Dragon House'

Hear full-length cuts from Dengue Fever's second CD:

Sarah Bardeen reviews Escape from Dragon House, a new CD from the group Dengue Fever. The six-member band fuses Cambodian pop with psychedelic rock, creating an only-in-California sound that's gaining new fans with each gig.

It's the second CD from the unique band, formed when five band mates discovered their lead vocalist, Chhom Nimol, singing at a nightclub in a Cambodian neighborhood of Long Beach, Calif.

Nimol, part of a family of famed musicians from Cambodia, only recently moved to the United States and her English-language skills are limited. But that hasn't limited the band's growing popularity.
