John Pirozzi's stirring 2015 documentary Don't Think I've Forgotten: Cambodia's Lost Rock & Roll depicts the crackdown on the country’s popular culture during the 1970s. Throughout the 1960s, however, Cambodian musicians thrilled to the sounds coming from the US and the UK. After Pol Pot banned Western influences in Cambodian culture, artists disappeared, faced execution, or stopped making music altogether. Since 2001, Los Angeles sextet Dengue Fever have been conjuring up the pre-Pol Pot era through a combination of surf, garage, psychedelia, and keening vocals from Cambodian-born singer Chhom Nimol. If it isn't explicitly political, they're keeping alive a flame the Khmer Rouge made every attempt to extinguish. It might seem hyperbolic to say that every show is a stand against oppression--but it isn't completely inaccurate, either. KATHY FENNESSY
