We first saw Cambodian/American rock band Dengue Fever at SXSW many moons ago, early one morning, around 2am in an Austin bar. It was a mind blowing experience of both sight and particularly sound!
Now the band have announced that they are set to begin a deluxe reissue campaign to release their long out-of-print back catalog via their own Tuk Tuk Records. The first two titles to be reissued are their eponymous 2003 debut album and their 2005 follow-up 'Escape From Dragon House' on 26th May.
Both albums feature new bonus tracks, new liner notes, archival photos and upgraded original artwork, an expanded 20-page booklet for Dengue Fever while Escape features a fold out poster. Vinyl reissues will be available later this year.
“Since acquiring our back catalog a few years back, we’ve always talked about doing deluxe editions of all of Dengue Fever’s out-of-print titles properly on our own label,” said Dengue Fever bassist and Tuk Tuk Records Co-owner Senon Williams. “Our primary goal was to get our first albums Dengue Fever and Escape From Dragon House back in print first with bonus material and other upgrades and use it as a template to upgrade the rest of our back catalogue moving forward.”

Martha Tilston has a new album called 'Nomad' out on CD now and on vinyl on 26th May.
The album was born whilst recording 2014’s album The Sea: ensconced at a cliffside cottage in Cornwall, Martha and her frequent collaborators Matt Tweed, Nick Marshall and Tim Cotterell, amongst other new faces, would pick up instruments in the late hours and begin to experiment with Martha’s other ideas. Often just blueprints, the outcome of these sessions arising from spontaneity, experimentation and maturing songwriting was to become 'Nomad'
Martha Tilston has grown up immersed in music from a young age. Her singer-songwriter father Steve Tilston and renowned folk singer Maggie Boylge (step-mother) were obvious influences, with their musician friends Bert Jansch, John Rebourn and John Martin often gathering and singing in the family kitchen.
Martha’s own musical journey has taken her from the Acoustic Stage at Glastonbury to touring the far reaches of the globe. Originally one half of folk duo Mouse (alongside Nick Marshall),
Following the release of NOMAD, Martha will have released seven albums to date on her own label Squiggly Records
