Khruangbin

Profile:
US band from Houston, Texas, but born in Burton, Texas. "Khruangbin" translates to airplane (literal translation "engine fly") in the Thai language. It’s a homage to the Thai rock/funk that inspired the formation of the band, and the airplane symbolizes the international set of influences that shaped their music. They create and record all of their material in a barn, deep in the countryside of Texas for the tranquil and inspiring setting.

With no disrespect intended I am wondering if and when Laura & Mark might do away with the "early 70's Tony Iommi wigs"?

I wish someone took their stuff/albums/tracks on a dub plate/table and make dub versions. Their music/vibe is so spacious it just begs for it ! Just thought about it while listening to Christmas Time Is Here (Version Mary). They're amazing.

I know they're not "throttling" vinyl production, but holy crap these limited releases are making them one of the most collectible bands in a LONG LONG time. For those who want to know their genre, thinkg "Psychedelic Vietnamese Movie Score Lounge Rock-Jazz" LOL They're simply the best. I don't have "favorite bands" very often.... but if they could tour the West Coast of the US with Fat Freddy's Drop, I could die happy. I still will die happy, but that would be epic.

JUST saw them open for Leon Bridges a couple days ago. Had NO clue who they were. they damn near stole the show. ALL of them super tight. Kind of hard to describe but what I would say is they were perfect for dusk/night @ the Greek Theatre. Those guitar notes just gently floated into the warm night sky. Picke dup both their albums that night but have not yet had a chance to listen. All I can say is peep don't sleep!!!

I knew nothing about them and just happened to grab a copy of Con Todo El Mundo based solely on the band's name - thinking it would be some world/new age sound.I am now hooked on their ambient rock jams. So much better than what I had hoped for!

Not too sure if there is any Thais in the band but the band name is "an airplane" in Thai language!
