Khruangbin

Vinyl Records and Rare LPs:

Con Todo El Mundo
New - LP - DOC153
Sealed 2018 Original. Beautiful Sophomore Effort From The Texan Trio. One Of The Top Records Of 2018, A Melting Pot Of Funk, Soul, Rock And Dub With Psychedelic Tendencies From Across The World. "Texan Trio Khruangbin Named Themselves After The Thai Word For Airplane, Which Couldn't Be More Appropriate For A Band Whose Influences Imply Heavy Passport Usage. Of Course, The Band Are Inspired By Thai Rock And Funk From The '60s And '70s -- Sounds Most Easily Available To Western Ears Via Releases Like The Thai Beat A Go-go Compilations Or Anything Issued By Zudrangma Records. The Group Also Draw From The Bass Pressure Of Vintage Dub Reggae, The Free-spirited Haziness Of California Psychedelia, And The Gritty Passion Of '70s Soul, With Hints Of Iranian Pop, Afrobeat, Spaghetti Western Film Scores, And Countless Other Styles. While This Sounds Like It Could Be An Impossibly Tall Order, Or Something That Requires An Encyclopedic Knowledge Of Music Just To Listen To, The Band Achieve A Remarkably, Almost Effortlessly Cohesive Sound, And It Goes Down Much More Smoothly Than One Might Expect. The Group Never Have A Lead Vocalist, But Most Of The Songs On Con Todo El Mundo Feature Distant, Shadowy Backup Vocals, Making Them Seem Like Proper Songs With The Lyrics Removed. Instead, Mark Speer's Reverb-heavy Guitar Does Most Of The Talking, Playing A More Ethereal Variation On Twangy Surf Or Desert Blues Riffs. Without Breaking A Sweat Or Running Away From The General Vibe, The Group Slip In Middle Eastern-sounding Percussion, Loungey Vibraphone, And Humorous Taunts During The Playful "Lady And Man." The Organ-kissed "Shades Of Man" Has A Similar Deep-but-smooth Soul Flavor, And Ends With A Short Bit Featuring Someone Asking How To Pronounce The Band's Name. "Evan Finds The Third Room" Is A Fun, Handclap-riddled Funk Tune With Dazzling Guitar Licks And More Playful Call-and-response Vocals. The Album Ends With The Supremely Chilled "Friday Morning," Which Seems Like A Slowed-down, Half-remembered Interpretation Of Ice Cube's "It Was A Good Day." The Song Is So Easygoing That You Might Not Even Notice How Many Times The Group Switches The Tempo." AllMusic Review By Paul Simpson. more

Mordechai
New - LP - DOC193
Sealed 2020 Standard Black Vinyl Edition, Housed In A Gatefold. Custom Hype Sticker On Shrink. "After Khruangbin Released Their Second Album, Con Todo El Mundo, In Early 2018, The Jet-setting Texan Trio's Music Suddenly Seemed To Pop Up Everywhere, From Play Lists Of Many Stripes To Hip Boutiques And Eateries. Their Uncategorizable But Easily Enjoyable Blend Of Psych, Funk, Dub, And Myriad Other Styles Managed To Find The Right Audience, And They Sold Out Concerts Left And Right, While Vinyl Collectors Fiended Over Limited Pressings Of Their Records. Several Months Before Their Third Full-Length Appeared In 2020, They Collaborated With Retro-Soul Troubadour Leon Bridges On The Four-Song EP Texas Sun, Their First Release To Feature Clear, Upfront Singing. Mordechai Contains Vocals On Nearly Every Song, And The Group Have Much More To Say This Time Around. "Time (You And I)," Maybe Their Best Song To Date, Reflects On A Desire To Build A Future With Someone, If Only There Was More Time And The Feeling Was Mutual. The Sprawling Disco Beat And Playful Cadences Make The Song An Easy Party Jam, But The Lyrics' Mixture Of Fantasy And Invitation Resonate Harder Than Anything Else They've Written. Almost As Affecting Is "If There Is No Question," An Unassuming Soul Groove Which Carries The Comforting Reassurance That "You're Wild, But You're Not Crazy." "So We Don't Forget" Is Light, Steady Funk With Afro-Pop Guitar Lines, Glistening Organ, And Softly Cooing Vocals, And Its Mood Is Equal Parts Blissful Vibing And Bashful Introspection. A Chilled-Out Reggae Variation Titled "One To Remember" Is Also Present, Echoing The Band's 2019 Dub Excursion Hasta El Cielo. Much More Outgoing Is "Pelota," A Spicy, Percussive Tune Filled With Handclaps And Exuberant Spanish-sung Vocals. The Band Also Have A Bit Of Fun Alluding To French New Wave Films With The Seductive Dialogue Of "Connaissais De Face." Khruangbin's Music Can Still Work As An Ebullient, Sun-baked Soundtrack To Daily Activities, Social Gatherings, Or Cross-Country Road Trips, But Their Songs Have Gotten More Expressive And Soul-Searching, And Mordechai Rewards Closer Listening More Than Any Of Their Previous Recordings."

Mordechai - Remixes
New - LP - DOC230
Sealed 2021 2LP Gatefold Original. "Khruangbin Followed Their 2018 Breakthrough Con Todo El Mundo With A Full-on Dub Reworking Of The Album, Titled Hasta El Cielo, And While It Was Certainly A Nice Idea, The Final Result Ended Up Being A Bit Monochromatic. After The Release Of Mordechai, The Band's Most Vocal-heavy Album To Date, Khruangbin Released A Series Of Limited-edition Singles Featuring Remixes By Several Producers And Artists. Compiled As A Full-length, The Tracks Are Sequenced In A Way So That The Listening Experience Gradually Simmers And Heats Up, Rather Than Just Mirroring The Original Album Track List. Kadhja Bonet Starts It Off By Adding Gentle Layered Vocals, A Sparse Drum Machine Beat, Distant Strings, And A Synth Bassline To The Guitar Riff Of "Father Bird, Mother Sun." Ginger Root Turns The Spoken Conversation Of "Connaissais De Face" Into Boom-bap Funk Fit For Being Blasted From A Bulky Cassette Stereo, And Knxwledge Contributes A Stunning, Slinky Lo-fi Synth-funk Version Of "Dearest Alfred." The Remainder Of The Mixes Are More Club-friendly, And Demonstrate How Easily The Band's Songs Can Be Converted Into Deep House Floor-fillers. A Few Producers Take The Smooth, Low-key Route, With Natasha Diggs Adding Flashes Of Perky Trumpet And Clapping Beats To "First Class" And Harvey Sutherland Doing A Spacious Dub Of "One To Remember" With A Huge, Elastic Bassline. Others Pump Up The Energy Level And Toughen The Beats Up A Bit, But Still Retain A Celebratory, Feel-good Vibe. Soul Clap Tap Into The Disco Classiness Of "If There Is No Question," And Quantic Is A Natural Choice To Take On The Dubby Latin Groove Of "Pelota." Felix Dickinson Essentially Produces An Extended Cosmic Disco Edit Of "Time (You And I)," Taking His Time To Draw Out The Song's Touching Lyrics. Ron Trent Translates The Drifting, Swept-away Groove Of "Shida" Into Breezy, Percussion-heavy Deep House. Mang Dynasty's Version Of "So We Won't Forget" Is Pleasant And Tropical, But It Doesn't Significantly Differ From The Original. Khruangbin Have Always Drawn From A Wide Range Of Influences And Shaped Them Into An Easily Recognizable Sound, And So Their Music Seems Open To Reinterpretation In Myriad Ways. Mordechai Remixes Ends Up Maybe A Little Heavier On House Music Than One Might Expect Going In, But It Certainly Doesn't Clash With The Band's Style, And Most Of Its Tracks Would Be Welcome In Any House Or Funk Dj's Crates."
