Chhom Nimol is the singer of my Favorite Cambodian Psychedelic Surf Rock band, Dengue Fever. With influences such as The Ventures, Charles Mingus, Blondie, and Os Mutantes they have a retro sound that’s also really fresh and fun. check out some of their music at their site.
I shot a photo of Nimol and her stage dresses for two.one.five magazine’s series of artists and their collections, which is going to press next week.
Here are some photos from the show at the Mohawk in Austin.
