Khruangbin – Mordechai
Because sometimes what you need during lockdown is to be transported somewhere better by whatever’s in your headphones: Mordechai’s self-styled “Earth music” sounds like a warm summer breeze, a gentle drift of guitars equal parts psychedelic and west African, scattered vocals and lazy funk drums, the overall effect somewhere between Roy Ayers and Air.
