Khruangbin Herald Their ‘Mordechai Remixes’ Album With A Funky Reimagining Of ‘Pelota’

Texas trio Khruangbin expanded their psychedelic funk sound with their third LP Mordechai. But now, they’ve entrusted their music with a number of musicians who they admire for the upcoming 10-track effort Mordechai Remixes. Officially announcing the project, Khruangbin share the project’s lead single and reveal that they’re hitting the road for a tour this summer.

Khurangbin shared a hip-swinging remix of their Mordechai track “Pelota” Thursday, re-imagined by producer Quantic. In a statement about their decision to organize a remix album, the band said:

“We write our music to be interpreted; this is another wonderful interpretation of the music. There is something very vulnerable about letting others work on your music. But through the correspondence with the different artists, we gained a bigger connection to the songs themselves.”
