    Globetrotting Texan trio Khruangbin deliver ‘Hasta El Cielo’, the band’s glorious dub version of their second album ‘Con Todo El Mundo’. The full album has been processed anew along with two bonus dubs by renowned Jamaican producer Scientist.

    The band’s exotic, spacious, psychedelic funk aligns with the dub treatment particularly well. Indeed, keen fans won’t find this a surprising release. Dubs of tracks from their first album ‘The Universe Smiles Upon You’ appeared on limited vinyl releases of ‘People Everywhere’ for Record Store Day 2016 and ‘Zionsville’ on the BoogieFuturo remix 12”. The especially eagle-eared will have caught a dub of ‘Two Fish And An Elephant’ playing over the credits of the track’s celebrated video.

    “For us, Dub has always felt like a prayer. Spacious, meditative, able to transport the listener to another realm. The first dub albums we listened to were records mixed by Scientist featuring the music of the Roots Radics. Laura Lee learned to play bass by listening to Scientist Wins the World Cup. His unique mixing style, with the emphasis on space and texture, creates the feeling of frozen time; it was hugely influential to us as a band. To be able to work alongside Scientist, a legend in the history of dub, is an honor. This is our dub version of Con Todo El Mundo.”
    - Khruangbin

    Formed of Laura Lee on bass, Mark Speer on guitar, and Donald “DJ” Johnson on drums; Khruangbin’s sounds are rooted in the deepest waters of music from around the world, infused with classic soul, dub and psychedelia. Their 2015 debut album ‘The Universe Smiles Upon You’ was heavily influenced by 60’s and 70’s Thai cassettes the band listened to on their long car journeys to rehearsal in the Texan countryside. 2018’s follow up ‘Con Todo El Mundo’, which received hugely positive critical reactions and radio play around the world, took inspiration not just from South East Asia but similarly underdiscovered funk and soul of the Mediterranean and the Middle East, particularly Iran.

    Taking influence from 1960's Thai funk - their name literally translates to Engine Fly in Thai - Khruangbin’s debut album ‘The Universe Smiles Upon You’ is steeped in the bass heavy, psychedelic sound of their inspiration, Tarantino soundtracks and surf-rock cool. The Texan trio is formed of Laura Lee on bass, Mark Speer on guitar, and Donald “DJ” Johnson on drums.

    ‘The Universe Smiles Upon You’ was recorded at their spiritual home, a remote barn deep in the Texas countryside where their first rehearsals took place. The band listened to a lot of different types of music on the long drives out to the country but their favourites were 60s and 70s Thai cassettes gleaned from the cult Monrakplengthai blog and compilations of southeast Asian pop, rock and funk. This had a heavy impact on the direction of the band, the scales they used and the inflection of the melodies; which coupled with the spaciousness of the Texan countryside culminated in Khruangbin forming their exotic, individual sound.

    “We feel like there is an ease that comes from being immersed in a space, away from the distractions of the city and everyday life. We make our music in a barn, in the Texas hill country, because it makes sense to us. Being there allows us to make music that comes naturally, and that’s what we wanted this album to be. We wanted to make a record that just let the music happen, and we hope that’s what you can hear.”

  • Khruangbin: How A Houston Trio Brought Thai Funk To The Masses

    13:17

    My Interview with Khruangbin:
    Shop:
    Instagram:
    Spotify:

    Khruangbin has made quite the name for themselves over the past couple years by producing dreamy, Thai-influenced, psychedelic music. It’s a sound that seems like it came straight out of a Tarantino movie. I take a look at the Houston trio's background and show how they brought 60s & 70s Thai funk to the masses.

    Shot using: Audio Technica AT2020 USB Mic, QuickTime Screen Recording, and 4K Video Downloader

    Music:
    Maria Tambien, Zionsville, A Calf Born in Winter, The Infamous Bill, Mr. White, Two Fish and an Elephant, Como Te Quiero, and August Twelve by Khruangbin
    Dangerous Match 3 by Roots Radics

    I used these articles to create this video:










  • Khruangbin - Maria También

    3:11

    Let's get the big question answered right away. The name means 'airplane' in Thai, says Khruangbin's Laura Lee. We were listening to a lot of Thai music when we started the band, and I tried to learn Thai at the time, and khruangbin was one of the first words I learned, and it was really fun to say. And it seemed fitting — because we were listening to Thai music at the time — to name ourselves after what we were inspired by.

    Frequently mislabeled as a Thai-funk band, omnidirectionally influenced trio Khruangbin — comprising bassist Lee, along with guitarist Mark Speer and drummer Donald DJ Johnson — are actually from Houston, Texas. In St. Paul for a show at the Turf Club, Khruangbin stopped at The Current for a session hosted by David Safar.

    As evidence of their many inspirations, the new album from Khruangbin has a Spanish name, Con Todo El Mundo, and features the hit single, Maria También, also in Spanish. Not that Khruangbin have lost any love for Thai music. The first album was inspired by Thai music and the name was Thai, so I think it was an easy thing to write, to say that Khruangbin was Thai funk, Lee says. But we pull from music from all over the world.

    It's a disservice to those bands from Thailand who are doing really, really amazing work, Speer adds. That's some of my favorite music in the world.

    Althought the members of Khruangbin say that Houston isn't home to a lot of record labels or other music-industry infrastructure, the city has launched the careers of many accomplished musicians. Lee notes that many, many Houston musicians have become highly regarded session players, and Speer and Johnson met one another playing music in the church where Beyoncé grew up.

    Plus, in the town of Burton, Texas, is where Khruangbin can find the space — and the barn — where they can record their music. It's dirt floors, it's a big corrugated tin building; you can open up all the doors, Speer explains. Usually to prepare for the rehearsals, we'll get all the bees out and make some noise so the little critters can know to find another place to be for the next couple days, and then we just bring in some gear and set it up and that's it.

    The space allows the band to be as loud or as quiet as they need to be. It's a farm-to-(turn)table approach to music that seems to be suiting Khruangbin very well.

    From Khruangbin's 2018 release, Con Todo El Mundo, available on Dead Oceans.

    “This is the first song with lyrics we’ve ever written. We never really thought of ourselves as having a “singer” but we knew that we wanted a voice for Khruangbin. We decided to write about something close to us, tell a story as simply as possible, and sing it together. We created the footage for 'White Gloves' many years ago by creating a video feedback loop with a vhs camera and an old television. We always wanted to use it in some way with Khruangbin, and after all of this time, it found what it was missing. It lets the story and the song speak for themselves. ”

We make our music in a barn, in the Texas hill country, because it makes sense to us. Being there allows us to make music that comes naturally, and that’s what we wanted this album to be. We wanted to make a record that just let the music happen, and we hope that’s what you can hear.”

    Order album:

    Friday Morning is a love song, written and recorded at the remote farm in Burton, Texas where Khruangbin got its start. To commemorate the song, the band asked their closest friends and family to record messages of love to each band member. The music video is a portrait of the band hearing these audio recordings for the first time, capturing on film the emotions one feels when they hear just how loved they are; a poignant and heartfelt expression in a time where, as a collective whole, we need to hear and express love more than ever.

    If we had more time
    We could live forever
    Just You and I
    We could be together
    Just you and I

    We can play like children play
    We can say like children say
    Just you and I
    Have we got the time

    We can wise when we grow old
    Get slow when we grow old
    Just you and I
    Have we got the time

    Do you know
    Here we go

    That’s Life

    We can rhyme like children rhyme
    We can time like children time
    Just you and I

    Make a plan for when we old
    Reminisce when we get old
    Just You and I
    Have we got the time

    Do you know
    Here we go

    We can now
    When
    We are here

    We can then
    When
    We are there

    We are here
    We are there
    That’s Life

    Time

    Khruangbin - So We Won’t Forget

    #Khruangbin, #SoWeWon’tForget, #Mordechai

  • Khruangbin: NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert

    11:33

    May 16, 2018 | Bob Boilen -- It was daylight but the music was dark and moody. And despite having the office lights turned on high, it was Khruangbin's trance-inducing tone that set the mood and carried me away.

    This trio from Houston, Texas is heavily inspired by 1960s and '70s funk and soul from, of all places, Thailand. That musical passion has taken them on a journey that, these days, incorporates music from Spain, Ethiopia and the Middle East. Khruangbin's largely instrumental music is grounded in Laura Lee's bass, with Mark Speer playing those melodic, richly reverbed guitar sounds and Donald DJ Johnson on drums and piano.

    Two of the three songs performed at this Tiny Desk Concert are from their 2018 album Con Todo El Mundo, which is dedicated in part to Laura Lee's Mexican-American grandfather. He'd often ask her how much she loved him and the response that pleased him most was when she would say, con todo el mundo, (with all the world.)

    The third track in this performance is one of the band's first forays into vocals, from their 2015 debut album, The Universe Smiles Upon You. White Gloves gently pays homage to a classy lady who was a fighter and who died in a fight. Its open-ended lyrics could imply a battle that was violent or an illness. It isn't clear. What is clear is the reverence in the song and in this music — music that strays from typical instrumental songs with heavy beats. This is music to sway to and to lift you beyond the day to day.
