Never listened to "Rules". Best song I discovered this year. So perfect. I like the live performance more than the studio song. And this is not only because of Laura Lee. But OMG, this song is life.

Khraungbin are quite nice. Good as background music but not arresting enough to want to listen to a full album on headphones for me, Clive.

Needs more amen breaks.

I can agree if we all define Autechre and RDJ as "quite nice". i.e. a re-definition of quite nice. Khruangbin are the fuckin' masters of giving me my faith into humanity back, man.

But seriously, sometimes I think - (it wouldn't be Khruangbin then I guess) - they could do some wank wank orgasm Tom Jenkinson/VSnares beats etc... E.g., the ending of August 12 asks for a climax, they built up tension... but they end the track then.

the talk of IDM influence reminds me of the musician that opened for them on tour, pedal steel guitarist Will Van Horn - still no breatbeat wankery though

agree except for the wanky beats, i think theyll continue to play their instruments. but within that framework id like to see them get more weird on wherever they go next..

I guess it's difficult. I enjoy them going wilder. E.g. in the "Rules" track I love when he plays the guitar distorted at some points (don't know the terminology of guitarists). But OTOH people love Khru because they are so lush (some rude people say "elevator music"). No wildness. If they'd leave that road, they would just be one band out of many.
