Across the uni­verse: Khru­ang­bin

Pasatiempo - - RANDOM ACTS -

The smooth yet funky surf stylings of Khru­ang­bin go down as easy as cold le­mon­ade on a hot sum­mer’s day in Texas — which is where the mem­bers of this trio met, as un­likely as that might seem if you lis­ten to their mu­sic. Khru­ang­bin, which trans­lates to “air en­gine” or “air­plane” in Thai, got much of its early in­spi­ra­tion from Thai funk mu­sic of the 1960s. On their 2015 re­lease, The Uni­verse Smiles Upon You, they added lyrics to their largely in­stru­men­tal reper­toire. When the band sings, it is both un­der­stated and psy­che­delic, and the mu­sic is made for groov­ing. Khru­ang­bin plays at the Meow Wolf Art Com­plex (1352 Ru­fina Cir­cle, 505-780-4458) on Fri­day, Sept. 16, at 8 p.m. Tick­ets to the twenty-one-an­dover show are $12 in ad­vance and $15 at the door, avail­able at www.me­ow­wolf.com. — J.L.
