As with most music, Khruangbin entered my orbit unassumingly from my friend Leo. “Such chill vibes man, check it out,” he said. Gave it a listen. Didn’t stick right away. Then I dove back in after seeing it pop up everywhere.
He was not wrong. Chill vibes is right.
The above Tiny Desk concert from NPR is a great intro to the band. The mostly instrumental trio is from Houston, TX, and is lead by bassist Laura Lee.
Their latest LP, 2018’s Con Todo El Mundo is worth your time. Great background music for any occasion.
As a bonus, check out their full live show from last year.
