RIYL: Menahan Street Band, Khun Narin Electric Phin Band
Label: Dead Oceans (US) / Night Time Stories (UK)
East Texas psychstrumentalists Khruangbin, wielders of exotic Thai funk-inspired grooves, set the dance floor on fire with 2018’s Con Todo El Mundo, their first romp with Dead Oceans and undoubtedly their most successful album to date. This year will see the band take the album out for another spin, but this new journey will have some extra flavors and spices. Similar to The Frightnrs’ More to Say Versions LP on Daptone Records, Hasta El Cielo is a complete reworking of Khruangbin’s last record with dubbed out psychedelicious effects.Â If there was ever a band where this idea made sense, it’d be with Khruangbin.
