Song: So We Won't Forget
SODs are not coming back full-time, but I've spent all day editing "Here Goes Dozo: Episode I" which means no blogs (until this) today and I don't want to get called out again; even if it was somewhat valid criticism.
I do need to write more, even with some real life shit (outside of Covid) going on in ya boi's life that has poured my creative juices on the floor...No excuses like Alice in Chains. Here Goes Dozo will be out today. Until then, let's sit back and watch the new Khruagbin video for the first time; together. Don't read below until you've finished the video.
Ho-ly shit. That sure was HEAVY. Talk about your classic 180 from their last video. Whether it's building sandcastles on city streets or assaulting an officer who just spilled your daughter's ashes; there's no denying Khruagbin is one of the best acts in all of music (I SAID SO!). Mark, Laura and DJ don't sound like anything else in the music game....now or ever! They've blended so many genres and cultures together that their liner notes need a 23andme.
The late Jim Valvano once said it we did the follow three things "laugh, think and cry" each day we'd really be living. Well, through two videos Khruagbin's new album has already hit all three. You definitely couldn't make this video with Americans.
I am really digging how Laura Lee's role in the band has expanded on these last two songs. We've heard her sing in the past, but these last two tracks have been a coming out party for Laura Leezy vocally. I love the classic instrumental Khruagbin sound; it's my go to blogging music because I can still think, but so far so good with Mordechai. June 26th will be here before you know it.
