Diggin’ This: Khruangbin – “White Gloves”

 

What is it with the Lone Star state and making gloriously expansive, post-rocky-shoegazey, starry, meditative music?

Enter Texas three-piece Khruangbin, comprised of Laura Lee on bass, Mark Speer on guitar, and Donald Johnson on drums.

 

The 1960s Thai funk is strong in this one; “Khruangbin” translates to “Engine Fly” in Thai.

 

The trio record all their music in a remote barn deep in the Texas countryside outside of Houston, where their first rehearsals took place.

 

Love this.
