Khruangbin

If you ever find yourself in Burton, Texas -- population 359 -- you may hear some
strange sounds coming from a particularly remote barn.
The sounds are those of Khruangbin, a psychedelic trio who draw inspiration
from the deepest depths of music history: mixing 1960's funk scene in Thailand,
1970's Persian rock music, and 1980's Algerian symphonia with a dash of disco,
soul, and balearic music.
Though the band's inspiration comes from all around the world, their roots are
distinctly Texan. Ever since their first rehearsals, Khruangbin have recorded at
their remote Burton barn, their spiritual home. Which means their stage
performance was honed not playing to hipsters in venues, but to cows out to
pasture.
After developing a fan base of the barnyard variety, they decided to find out if
humans would enjoy their music too. Since then, they've found their audiences
just as diverse as the music itself -- selling out headline shows in the US, UK
and Europe, supporting acts like Father John Misty and Massive Attack, and late
last year, signing on to be Corona's official brand sound.
They've found fans all over the world, from Iggy Pop to Haley Joel Osment to
Lee Hyori, Korea's biggest pop star, and play festivals as diverse as
Glastonbury to Electric Forest to the upcoming Wonderfruit in Thailand.
To showcase their many influences, the band does a weekly DJ set
every Friday morning at 9am PST called AIR KHRUANG. Each episode
showcases the best old school funk from a different city. Recent "flights"
include destinations such as Addis Ababa, Tehran and Istanbul. They can also
be found on their NTS radio show, Cabin Pressure, where they pay homage to
the funketeers around the world who've come before them.
Their debut album, ‘The Universe Smiles Upon You,’ was released in November
2015 to widespread acclaim.
Anticipation is high for new album ‘Con Todo El Mundo’ which will be released
in January 2018 by Night Time Stories and by Dead Oceans in the US.
