Album Review: Mordechai by Khruangbin (8/10)

Bands that defy categorization have the unique ability to transform the human spirit. Khruangbin embody this axiom with Mordechai, the hotly anticipated follow-up album to the song “Texas Sun,” their breezy collab with Leon Bridges. Take, for example, lead single “Time (You and I),” which rattles off a passel of languages during its shimmering climax. An accessible yet sophisticated mélange of soul and funk reflected by a holistic, humanistic outlook. Consider this your next step toward enlightenment.
