When acidjack last captured Mon Khmer for NYCTaper, the band’s debut album had not yet been released. In the intervening months, the band’s debut has garnered some well deserved glowing reviews. Last week at Mercury Lounge, Mon Khmer’s distinctive take on prog-style indie rock was on display and the results were impressive. On stage the band is tight and while the focus is clearly on bandleader Hammarsing, we were also particularly impressed with drum and pedal steel work. On this night, they worked through several of the album tracks and also introduced a few unreleased numbers.

Mon Khmer has two upcoming local shows, May 3 at Santos Party House, and May 13 at Brooklyn Bowl.
