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.

Drifting is a mostly instrumental album of gentle melodies, acoustic textures and rippling rhythms. An echo of Cambodian music can also be heard.
