“Time (You and I)” by Khruangbin

The new single returns to the “classic” Khruangbin sound with slick guitar licks and silky-smooth rhythms.

Earlier this year, Khruangbin released the excellent Texas Sun EP, which found the trio joining forces with vocalist Leon Bridges and incorporating some country/​western twang into their funk. Now they’re set to release a new full-length album titled Mordechai.

According to the band, Mordechai is ​“a celebration of Houston, the eclectic city that had nurtured them, and a cultural nexus where you can check out country and zydeco, trap rap, or avant-garde opera on any given night.” (More info here.)

The first single, ​“Time (You and I),” is certainly celebratory in nature. Returning to the ​“classic” Khruangbin sound, the single is replete with Mark Speer’s too-slick guitar licks, Laura Lee’s airy vocals and silky-smooth bassline, and Donald Johnson, Jr.‘s clockwork-like drumming.

Mordechai will be released on June 26 by Dead Oceans/​Night Time Stories.
