Mordechai is available in an indie store exclusive pink vinyl.

The prolific Khruangbin locomotive shows little sign of slowing with the announcement of Mordechai; the Texan trio’s third album that comes just a few short months after their widely acclaimed collaboration with soul singer Leon Bridges on the Texas Sun EP. To state that Khruangbin are multi-faceted, multi-disciplinary, multi-influential, and multi-lingual would, of course, be an understatement. Mordechai though challenges the band’s aesthetic once more as, for the first time, an album features prominent vocals throughout - a shift for an ordinarily instrumental outfit. Mordechai draws references from Pakistan, Korea and West Africa, and yet became a celebration of Houston; the group’s home city, something that the band consciously realised when they returned home after relentless touring, feeling lost. Mordechai is the album that the band created while rooted to home soil, bringing all of those nomadic experiences to their Texan farmhouse studio back home.

It will chill out even the most uptight among us.

Khruangbin are a band tailor-made for record shops. You need to play something artsy, thoughtful, often dubby in record shops. Something non-abrasive, lolling away in the background, throwing out chilled vibes to the dancing shoulders of your punters. Mordechai has that effect on most punters, you’ll find. Deeper observes may pore over the minutiae of interests at play and how Mordechai differs to breakout Con Todo El Mundo. All fine of course. For me, it’s a Khruangbin record and the examination almost writes itself. You can expect a deeply illusory experience that showcases an expansive set of influences, from dub to Mediterranean funk. Dreamy indie-shoegaze to grooving pseudo disco. In any event, it will chill out even the most uptight among us.
