Where their sensational 2015 debut The Universe Smiles Upon You was inspired by technicolour Thai funk cassettes from the ’60s and ’70s, the latest release casts a wider net to draw on global strains of funk and reverb-heavy psych, from South Asia to the Mediterranean and Middle East.

Cutting together archive recordings with the band’s signature raw guitar sound, first single ‘Maria También’ is something of a homage to the creative freedoms enjoyed by woman in Iran before the 1979 revolution.

Khruangbin’s Con Todo El Mundo is released on 26th January 2018. Pre-order a copy here and check out the artwork below.
