Chicago's Kmang Kmang sometimes sound like the unanticipated convergence of alt rock and ECM jazz—with a world of other influences distilled into the mix. At the group's core is Barmey Ung, a Cambodian American who studied classical guitar, drifted through flamenco and into indie rock without losing what he learned on the journey. Drifting is a mostly instrumental album of gentle melodies, acoustic textures and rippling rhythms. An echo of Cambodian music can also be heard.
