Houston-based group Khruangbin — composed of bassist Laura Lee Ochoa, guitarist Mark Speer, and drummer Donald “DJ” Johnson — has announced their new album, Mordechai, which is set to arrive on June 26 via Dead Oceans/Night Times Stories. The album follows their acclaimed breakthrough from 2018, Con Todo El Mundo, as well as their collaborative Texas Sun EP with Leon Bridges earlier this year. To commemorate the announcement of the new project, the psychedelic trio has released the album’s lead single, “Time (You and I),” alongside an accompanying music video.

Named after a friend who encouraged Ochoa to jump off a waterfall, Mordechai is the band’s fourth studio album and attempts to transmit the euphoric feeling of weightlessness that came with Ochoa’s sense of letting go. “Musically, the band’s ever-restless ear saw them pulling reference points from Pakistan, Korea, and West Africa, incorporating strains of Indian chanting boxes and Congolese syncopated guitar,” shared a press release about the project, relaying the band’s celebratory stance on Houston’s cultural eclecticism. Lead single “Time (You and I)” relays these motivations, giving audiences a groovy glimpse of what’s to come, highlighting the trio’s distinctive disco flair alongside a variety of global musical influences.
