Khruangbin Announce Dub Rework of Their Second Album, Share Lead Single "Mary Always"

Khruangbin, the astral-psych rockers from Texas, have announced Hasta El Cielo, a dub-oriented reworking of their second album Con Todo El Mundo.

Lead single “Mary Always” takes the groove from “Maria Tambien” and spaces it out even further than it already was. Emphasizing the rhythm of the bass and the drums, “Mary Always” basks in melodic reverb and adds new depth to the track with the addition of a synth line to be buried in the mix. The track is an exercise in trance, slowly lulling listeners into its wave and pushing them back out to sea.

In a statement, the band expand on the thought process behind Hasta El Cielo: “For us, Dub has always felt like a prayer. Spacious, meditative, able to transport the listener to another realm.” The group collaborated with legendary dub producer Scientist for the reworks, and will include two bonus dubs by him on their new album.

Hasta El Cielo is out July 12 via Dead Oceans/Night Time Stories. Space out with “Mary Always” below. Further down, you’ll find the album art and tracklist, and Khruangbin’s upcoming tour dates.
