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.

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.

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.


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.

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

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.

Ярчайший и наверняка лучший альбом в карьере техасского коллектива, всё стремительнее набирающего популярность. Идеальный саундтрек для жаркого лета для меня. При прослушивании будто переместился на берег лазурного пляжа.
I love that every time I go back to Houston I hear this album playing at bars and breweries and restaurants. Such nice Houston pride.
Worth a listen
The most straight up Psychedelic Rock release of Khruangbin's discog. This makes the record very focused, if a little less sonically diverse than their other work.
An aesthetically pleasing encapsulation of Texas culture. I grabbed this album in Houston at Sig’s Lagoon record store, after the owner recommended it. Their debut album, The Universe Smiles Upon You, is impressive as well.
