If you ever find yourself in Burton, Texas — population 359 — you may hear some strange sounds coming from a particularly remote barn.
The sounds are those of Khruangbin, a psychedelic trio who draw inspiration from the deepest depths of music history: mixing 1960’s funk scene in Thailand, 1970’s Persian rock music, and 1980’s Algerian symphonia with a dash of disco, soul, and balearic music.
To showcase their many influences, the band does a weekly DJ set every Friday morning at 9am PST called AIR KHRUANG. Each episode showcases the best old school funk from a different city. Recent “flights” include destinations such as Addis Ababa, Tehran and Istanbul.
