Cambodian psychedelia are an acquired taste, tending to combine high, saccharine vocals with acidic surf guitar.

Cambodian Space Project are one of the groups reviving the style (Dengue Fever are their best-known counterparts), with Srey Thy singing over a backing that includes Motown veterans Dennis Coffey on guitar and Phil Whitfield on keyboards, as well as the Motor City Horns.
