Dumb mmmn looking at song titles like 'Goodbye My Love', 'The Drunk Husband' and 'Your Car Is Too Old', I feel this may have been written exclusively about me.. nay, WAS.. and another thing, why isn't this played during the opening credits of Monday Night Football? It would give a whole new level of credibility to the NFL, sell tons more beer and probably piss off Hank Jr., but obviously, I'm not a golfer

Ryan Sarno Muscular and danceable rock from a family band of Cambodian refugees/immigrants/Americans in the mid-80s. The fuzz guitar is a demon cobra. The synth lines sound like forty overdubbed violins. The record is full of genius songwriting touches, like "Rose Bud" starting right off with a harmonized chorus. Wimeanacas Cambodian Band kills here. Favorite track: Rose Bud.

about

Wimeanacas was a Cambodian band based in Portland from 1982-1992. This is their second album, originally self released on cassette in 1987. An album of Cambodian celebration music, Wimeanacas played weddings, new year parties and community events during their 10 year existence. For this record, the band recorded all original numbers and had grown to a 10 piece ensemble. Holica and Sovann Yoeun were both working musicians in their native Cambodia when they fled the Khmer Rouge in 1975. Settling in Portland, Oregon they formed Wimeanacas Band which translates to Castle In The Sky.
