Khruangbin & Leon Bridges
this holy matrimony of two of texas’ brightest stars of the modern music scene has given birth to a luxurious blessing of sun-kissed soul psychedelia.
“Big sky country, that’s what they call Texas,” Khruangbin bassist Laura Lee says. “The horizon line goes all the way from one side to another without interruption. There’s something really comforting about that.” Here, the two artists converge in a dreamy badlands where genres blur as seamlessly as the terrain. All of these things, overlapping in a multi-coloured melange, purple hues as vivid & unpredictable as one of the state’s rightfully celebrated sunsets. It’s the kind of record made for listening with the windows down & the road humming softly beneath you. “an intoxicating proof of concept from two of Texas’ best artists, all in the interest of providing the proper mixtape for going somewhere—anywhere” – treblezine.
