The Texan three-piece are back with the follow-up to their incredible 2015 debut album The Universe Smiles Upon You. 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 world music infused with classic soul dub and psychedelia. The Universe Smiles Upon You was heavily influenced by 60’s and 70’s Thai-funk cassettes the band listened to on their long car journeys to rehearsal in the Texan countryside. Con Todo El Mundo takes inspiration not just from South East Asia but similarly undiscovered funk and soul of the Mediterranean and the Middle East particularly Iran. A vibe-synchronous soul-unit travelling the planet honing their craft absorbing the sights sounds and feels from cultures across the globe processing them through the Khruangbin filter and gifting the result back...with all the world.
