CRITIC REVIEWS

Clash
Khruangbin didn’t need to change much on this album, the sound they produce as a unit is still fresh, exciting and uniquely life-affirming. Only time will tell whether their relatively simple and largely instrumental formula will pull the listener in quite as effectively on future releases, once the novelty has worn off. For now you have full permission to cancel January and simply bask in the warm, universal glow of real world music.

The Line of Best Fit

In times of division in some parts of the US and beyond, Con Todo El Mundo is a refreshing project. Undoubtedly, this record is a mile away from a seething statement; it is airy and cinematic, but a consideration of its context only enhances the grooves.

The Skinny

Mostly ... Con Todo el Mundo is a celebration of what shared creativity and influence can bring – something the world needs a bit more of these days.

NME
Though all their songs hover around the four-minute mark, at their heart, Khruangbin – which means ‘airplane’ in Thai – are a jam band, all endless grooves and hypnotic soundscapes that instantly take you out of whatever happens to be getting on your tits at that very minute in time.

Exclaim!

Atmospheric grooves is the order of the day with Khruangbin's latest; by way of psychedelic rock, Con Todo El Mundo's got the groove and grips it tight.

FLOOD Magazine

Now that every new release is considered to be a potential protest album of some kind, Con Todo El Mundo has arrived wonderfully devoid of any superfluous meaning.

76
Pitchfork

Sprinkled with snippets of spoken word, faint vocal melodies, and ranging and impeccably performed guitar solos, the whole of their second record, Con Todo El Mundo is, in effect, a long and pleasant head nod that seems to hang between continents and eras.

AllMusic
The band achieve a remarkably, almost effortlessly cohesive sound, and it goes down much more smoothly than one might expect.
70
XLR8R

As a record, Con Todo El Mundo won’t change the world, but it will make your day brighter. Once you’ve maxed out playing records by The Budos Band and Bonobo, then Khruangbin should be next in your selection.

It's like chill sessions with the boys in your dads garage meets spaghetti western soundtrack. As appealing as that all sounds, there's no extra layer to make this an interesting album. It's just good jams, but with a false substance.

With its sophomore album, the trio from Houston attempts a better organized trip to the moody and cinematic, psychedelic grooves and shares it for free with the rest of the inquisitive travellers.

In an era where cultural appropration is the greatest of risks for any band influenced by ""world music"", Khruangbin, comprised of three wig-wearing Texans, gets a pass. Though it can hardly be labelled emotionally compelling, on Con Todo El Mundo, Khruangbin flies and floats above all the borders, between nations and between the many genres of this planet, seemingly without effort.
