Released in February 2020, the 4 song EP Texas Sun from Leon Bridges & Khruangbin was a welcome dose of Summer heat during one of the few cold months of the year in Texas. Formed out of their friendship from a previous tour, the EP mixes the cool psychedelic sounds of Khruangbin with the neo-soul & R&B of Mr. Bridges. The result felt like a tantalizing taste of what could be, leaving the listener wanting more than just its 4 short songs.
Little did we know that the world would shut down just a month later and the long time spent languishing under Covid would make this EP feel like it came out a decade ago instead of in 2020.
Fast forward two years and we now have a new EP to look forward to from these two formidable Texas giants. Texas Moon, the new 5 song EP, drops this Friday. With pre-orders selling out all over the internet and stores eagerly awaiting its release, the hype couldn’t get much bigger. With a more introspective feel, this EP will rocket to the top of the charts, much like its predecessor and I can assure you that the vinyl release will sell out immediately, leaving many a fan clamoring for a repress that, during the height of this vinyl pressing plant chaos, will be months and months away.
It’s out this Friday, so don’t hesitate to swing by and grab your copy ASAP. They’ll be gone before the Texas Sun sets and the Moon rises in the sky.
