Khruangbin's fourth studio album, A La Sala ("To the Room" in Spanish),
is an exercise in returning in order to go further, and doing so on your
own terms. It continues the mystery and sanctity that is the key to how
bassist Laura Lee Ochoa, drummer Donald "DJ" Johnson, Jr. and guitarist
Mark "Marko" Speer approach music. If 2020's Mordechai, the last studio
LP Khruangbin made without collaborators, was a party record that
enhanced the band's musical reputation far and wide, then A La Sala is
the measured morning after. It's a gorgeously airy record completed only
in the company of the group's longtime engineer Steve Christensen, with
minimal overdubs. It's a window onto the bounties powering Khruangbin's
vision, a reimagining and refueling for the long haul ahead. A La Sala
scales Khruangbin down to scale up, a creative strategy with the future
in mind.

The trio's collective musical DNA, the years spent constructing it in
Houston's local-meets-global cultural stew, ensures the band continues
to sound like no one but itself. A cascade of crisp melodies emanates
from Marko's reverb-heavy electric, dancing gently around Laura Lee's
minimalist almost-dub bass triangles, while DJ's drums serve as the
tightened-up pocket and unwavering dance-floor on which all this
movement takes place. Yet there's a freshness to A La Sala's
instrumental interactivity, less concerned with getting further out than
going deeper in, a profound desire to celebrate the world's external
wonders. Where prior albums strived towards music's polyglot edges, such
inquiries now sound like beloved intimacies. Here, Khruangbin's sonic
touch-points -- whether spaghetti-western film scores (on "Fifteen
Fifty-Three"), West African discos (on "Pon Pón"), G-funk fantasias
("Todavía Viva"), living room dancing moments (the first single, "A
Love International"), or even ambient found-sounds (on "Farolim de
Felgueiras and throughout the album") -- are ingrained characteristics.
This is who they are! Unique and huge (and growing), ambitious and
driven.

Khruangbin's aspirations and commitment to playful creativity even
extends to A La Sala's vinyl packages, of which there will be seven
distinctive covers and color-sets. Designed by the band using Marko's
multitude of travelog photos, the images are windows from the band's
living room onto a set of daydreams, scenes of impossible skies,
external glances that illuminate what is going on inside. Each cover
image comes with a matching color vinyl. These too are all about looking
out and looking back, in order to better look ahead.
