椰奶與老虎牌電話卡

準備迎接即將到來的夏天,我們有蚊子跟登革熱還有泰國料理。
這次是在Rob Da bank 三月十號的節目中聽到的。嗯,登革熱不是新團但這首老虎電話卡倒是收錄在新專輯Venus on Earth中。


早在聽到這首歌之前,我在以前買的一張合集(Cambodian rock)內就有聽過登革熱的聲音但是由於這張完全沒有曲目可以查,所以不知道他們是何許人也。
小樹說他們有收錄一首歌在電影愛情不用尋找City of Ghosts,還有一首單曲在Showcase頻道的影集Weeds 第二季中被採用。

組團緣起於2001年Ethan Holtzman到東南亞旅行後,在柬埔寨聽到了當地流行音樂與廣播,開始對這種六零年代後越戰充滿諜對諜氣氛的東亞柬埔寨音樂感到濃厚興趣。後來回到加州與弟弟Zac(先前似乎是一個另類鄉村團Dieselhed待過)開始了這樣的奇特組合。後來他們在柬埔寨首都Phnom Penh金邊當地的夜總會結識女主唱Chhom Nimol (內有真相),Nimol來美的過程可說是一波好幾折,因為後911政策的影響她持的旅遊護照只能待兩週後來因此的關係似乎讓Nimol遭到移民局逮捕拘留,該團的律師花了不少力氣才幫他爭取到兩年的簽證。此時樂團以停擺一年,2003年發行同名專輯。2005年的第二張專輯在阿嬤爽書店大受好評,列為年度百大。
他們大量的翻唱柬埔寨老歌並結合迷幻搖滾來創作。而Nimol她的英文特殊口音與柬埔寨語演唱更加凸顯出不同的文化交織出來的音樂新面貌與豐富性。
充滿東南亞風情與結合迷幻搖滾基調的雞尾酒音樂。
感謝神,我擁有健全的身體還有好耳朵是很重要的事情。

Lyrics

(Zac Holtzman)
You live in Phnom Penh

(Chhom Nimol)
You live in New York City

(Together)
But I think about you so so so so
So much I forget to eat

(Zac Holtzman)
It's 4 am I check my email

(Chhom Nimol)
I'm too geared up to fall asleep

(Together)
So I write you back and count the days until we'll be together

(Chhom Nimol)
The first thing that I do
Is

(Together)
Throw my arms around you

(Zac Holtzman)
And never let go

(Chhom Nimol)
And never let go

(Zac Holtzman)
I call you from my hotel room
I'm sitting on the hallway floor
I know that we are so
So so
So tired my phone card just expired

(Chhom Nimol)
You only call me when you're drunk
I can tell it by your voice
It's the only time that you
Open up to me and tell me that you love me

The first thing that I do
Is

(Together)
Throw my arms around you

(Zac Holtzman)
And never let go

(Chhom Nimol)
And never let go

(Zac Holtzman)
I'm thirty-thousand feet high
Flying through the dead of night
I took an Ambient and you came to visit me in my dreams.

(Chhom Nimol)
You were bathed in blue light
Floating right in front of me
Your face was so
So so
So bright I had to close my eyes to see

The first thing that I do
Is

(Together)
Throw my arms around you

(Zac Holtzman)
And never let go

(Chhom Nimol)
And never let go

(Together)
Never let go oh oh
Never let go oh oh
Never let go oh oh
Never let go oh oh
Never let go oh oh
