Khruangbin Hasta El Cielo (Con Todo El Mundo in Dub) Amazing dub version from Jamaican legend Scientist, of Khruangbin's excellent second full length album Con Todo El Mundo, one of our favourite albums from 2018. “For us, Dub has always felt like a prayer. Spacious, meditative, able to transport the listener to another realm. The first dub albums we listened to were records mixed by Scientist featuring the music of the Roots Radics. Laura Lee learned to play bass by listening to Scientist Wins the World Cup. His unique mixing style, with the emphasis on space and texture, creates the feeling of frozen time; it was hugely influential to us as a band. To be able to work alongside Scientist, a legend in the history of dub, is an honor. This is our dub version of Con Todo El Mundo.” - Khruangbin Night Time Stories 7" | CD | LP
Khruangbin Christmas Time Is Here Khruangbin Christmas single! A great cover, in their signature style, of Vince Guaraldi’s "Christmas Time Is Here." At the close of a marathon year supporting their breakthrough album, Con Todo El Mundo (out now on Night Time Stories), Khruangbin return with an exciting addition - an update on Vince Guaraldi’s timeless "Christmas Time Is Here." "Growing up the three of us all had very different Christmases," says bassist Laura Lee. "But we recently discovered we all had the exact same favourite Christmas song. When we realized it, we sat down to play it and it came together instantly. In 15 minutes, we had this recorded. It was like the best Christmas present ever." With ambling sweetness and a fresh, beat-driven groove, Khruangbin have taken this oft-covered classic and made it wholly their own. Night Time Stories 7"
