Khruangbin – Mary Always

Khruangbin (which literally translates to “Engine Fly” in Thai) is an American musical trio from Houston, Texas, featuring Laura Lee on bass, Mark Speer on guitar, and Donald Ray “DJ” Johnson Jr. on drums. Their second album ‘Con Todo El Mundo’ was one of my favourite albums of 2018! You can listen to previous #SOTD Maria También (29 Jan 2018)#SOTD Evan Finds The Third Room (4 Oct 2018); and full album on Spotify. And I also featured Khruangbin as the #ChristmasDaySOTD. Now the band are set to release a glorious dub version ‘Hasta El Cielo (Con Todo El Mundo in dub)’. Available to pre-order was Record/Vinyl, CD and Digital Album from Bandcamp. Out on .
