Well here we are folks. I promised that I would kick this music blog back up. I will be posting about songs and albums within my crates, deep digs, and new music. I am going to keep the sounds diverse but will keep the site very simple so you don’t have to navigate around too much. As more content is developed I may add other pages but for now it’s straight up blog posts. So here we go.
Today I am bringing you new sounds out of Houston,TX. It comes from a trio band named Khruangbin (pronounced “Kroongbin”). Their sounds are a combination of psychedelic funk infused with global influences. Hopefully that gives a bit of insight to the bands name as it is translated from Thai as “Engine Fly”. They are incredible. Back in February of this year they released a project with Fort Worth‘s own Leon Bridges titled Texas Sun. I only learned of Khruangbin last year at one of our BYOV nights. Luke Sardello from Josey Records brought a copy of their latest dub EP Hasta El Cielo for us to listen to. I was instantly hooked. So I got really excited when I saw an announcement for a new album – Khruangbin, ”Mordechai” . The band itself plays mostly instrumental tracks so to hear vocals on the first single was a treat. Peep the single and video below for Time you and I’ and go cop that pre-order -> Mordechai
