Saw them live recently and was thoroughly impressed. Thai and Middle Eastern funk, gospel, Dilla, Isley Brothers, wigs. Killer band.

My enthusiasm for them was met with derisive side eyes from 2 world music digger friends of mine. Hahaha, I'm so into vile metal and noise that when something outside that sphere catches me I always think it's huge. Maybe they are but it doesn't seem so. Maybe this lane's been traveled by Breakestra, Menahan Street Band, Budos Band etc. They seem like good people and are visually striking as a band.

i was dragged to gig of theirs more than a year ago, and suddenly they're pretty big! the recent show here sold out quick.

i like them

Like the record okay, was intrigued enough to start this video of a Boiler Room gig, and found myself entranced for an hour and totally sold on them:

Wish that live intensity made it to the LP more. I like how dude has found a new angle for stratocaster heroics. In this sense, they've got something similar to Here Lies Man and Sonido Gallo Negro, bringing aspects of zippos-raised-rawk into unlikely rhythmic places.

digging Hasta El Cielo a lot. I dunno about all the other stuff in the OP, this record seems like a straight dub pastiche (complete w/bonus Scientist remixes)

anybody wanna clue me in on how their name is pronounced?

Hasta El Cielo is literally a dub remix of last year's Con Todo El Mundo

New EP with Leon Bridges is very nice. It's probably a really obvious thing to say that being a backing band suits them, but I'm gonna say it anyway.

Track from it came up on an apple music Playlist (Vol de Nuit) like 5 minutes after I read your post. Pretty nice.

Very nice vs pretty nice lol

The new EP is grebt (and uh surprisingly sexy? Lol.) Sometimes I forget they're a Houston band, my brain wants to place them somewhere in the deserts of the American SW, but it all makes sense when I hear these songs. I can't wait for warm weather so I can cruise around listening with my windows down as God intended

"texas sun" is great. it brought to mind a replacements song i couldn't place because i haven't listened in years. turns out it's reminding me of "sixteen blue."

gah new ep is a SNOOOOOOZE

sean gramophone, Monday, 10 February 2020 15:36 (two weeks ago) link

isn't that kind of their thing?

seandalai, Tuesday, 11 February 2020 01:17 (two weeks ago) link

Yeah I couldn't listen to their full albums (heck, usually was bored before each song ended) cause found it too boring in big dose without vocals so as Jeff said they really benefit from a singer's contributions
