Weekend, September 15 & 16, 2018: Chances & Khruangbin

Interviews with Chances and Khruangbin on Echoes


This weekend on Echoes, we take Chances. Chances is the name of a Canadian duo who are making a powerful music with a vocal sound that draws from Indian singing as well as gospel. Their debut album is Travelers. Join us when we travel with Chances who talk about their music on Echoes.


Weekend listeners will hear us talk with Khruangbin. You may have heard the great concert they performed for us recently. John Diliberto sat down with the Texas trio to talk about their songs, which have roots in Thai pop, spaghetti westerns, surf guitar, krautrock, lounge music, dub and a lot of other styles, all wrapped up in a sound that’s been described as psychedelic.

Laura Lee: We get asked this a lot. I think psychedelic, you know, I guess initially was used to describe music that you would take psychedelics to. Um and I guess Khruangbin could be that.
Mark Speer: Yeah, I mean like the west, as soon as you start playing Turkish scales and slightly fuzzed out, everyone thinks it’s psychedelic, but really in Turkey it’s, it’s just rock music.

That’s Khruangbin. We talk to them on Echoes.
