Product Info

The Universe Smiles Upon You was recorded at their spiritual home, a remote barn deep in the Texas countryside where their first rehearsals took place.
The band listened to a lot of different types of music on the long drives out to the country but their favourites were 60's and 70's Thai cassettes gleaned from the cult Monrakplengthai blog and compilations of southeast Asian pop, rock and funk.

This had a heavy impact on the direction of the band, the scales they used and the inflection of the melodies; which coupled with the spaciousness of the Texan countryside culminated in Khruangbin forming their exotic, individual sound.

Although the band was conceived as an instrumental outfit, The Universe Smiles Upon You features the first Khruangbin recordings with vocals.
Tracks People Everywhere (Still Alive), Balls and Pins and recent single White Gloves show a new dimension to the band.
