Product Notes

'Krom - Neon Dark' is a 12 song, bilingual album, in English and Khmer. 10 of the songs are original 'Krom songs' written by Krom founder and guitarist Christopher Minko, working with co-song writer and vocalist, Sophea Chamroeun. 2 of the tracks feature the master of Mekong Delta Blues," Master Kong Nay, on chapei and vocals, along with vocalists Sophea Chamroeun and Sopheak Chamroeun. The album is produced by Sarin Chhuon. 'Neon Dark' is Krom's second album. Award-winning BBC broadcaster Mark Coles featured songs from the album 'Neon Dark' in his weekly radio broadcast "The Shed," and here is some of what he had to say: "And now KROM. I can't tell you how much I love what they're doing...it's low key, melancholia - dark, noir music from a place - Cambodia - that's been through terrible, tough times but it's utterly, utterly fantastic. In the most understated way. Their new album 'Neon Dark' arrived in the post today and it's beautiful - it reminds me of John Coltrane. Impressionistic, subtle, spiritual and uplifting against the odds" 'Krom' is a Cambodia-based band (Phnom Penh) - and is composer / songwriter / guitarist / vocalist, Christopher Minko, working with Khmer vocalists, Sophea Chamroeun and Sopheak Chamroeun ('The Chamroeun Sisters), joined by Jimmy 'B' (slide guitar and various other instruments), and sound engineer, Sarin Chhuon. Vocalist Sophea Chamroeun is also co-writer for Khmer songs. Krom songs offer a unique blend of Delta blues sound with traditional Khmer. Krom songs emanate from many years of life in South East Asia and a Krom song speaks for itself. Krom: "elusive, exclusive and reclusive"
