Hot on the heels of Mordechai, the critically acclaimed third album from US psych-rockers Khruangbin, the Texas trio are set to become the latest act to present their own LateNightTales in the popular, long-running musician-curated album series.
Having first come to prominence in 2013 when producer and D.J. Bonobo included Khruangbin's "A Calf Born in Winter" in his own collection of songs for the series, the little known Houston trio had yet to release an album, but have since gone on to become international superstars forming their own exotic, individual sound. "The LateNightTales series is such a special thing to be a part of because we wouldn't have made it if it wasn't for Bonobo's LateNightTales because that's how we got into the LNT family — and got a break."
With a mind-blowing selection of tracks that cross borders and cultures, Khruangbin's deep love of global grooves — from Asian pop to Nigerian reggae — Japanese mellow groove to Latina flavas — are steeped in eclecticism; Nazia Hassan's Hindi-disco "Khushi," produced by British-Indian legend Biddu, South Korean rock band Sanullim who contribute "Don't Go," a pair of African bangers from Nigerian Maxwell Udoh and Roha Band, from Ethiopia; a diversion to Belarus for Pesniary and thence to Madrid for the strident vocal performance of Paloma San Basilio with "Contigo" before hightailing back to Texas.
Elsewhere, the Lone Star state reps proudly, with David Marez and Kelly Doyle plus, in the LateNightTales tradition, the band deliver an exclusive, horizontally brilliant version of Kool & The Gang's "Summer Madness," while the mix concludes with a spoken word piece by Tierney Malone, accompanied by fellow Houstonian Geoffrey Muller's atmospheric banjo rendering of Erik Satie's "Gnossienne."
The LateNightTales series was established back in 2001 with Fila Brazilia taking to the controls and mixing up the first of what would continue to be the first choice of music connoisseurs worldwide. Since then, the series has seen releases from the likes of The Flaming Lips, Hot Chip, Floating Points, David Holmes, Bonobo, Jon Hopkins, Röyksopp, and many more.
