Album Review
Red West
Reviewed 2022-06-07
Guitar-bass-drums trio known for instrumentals in a low groove add vocalist Leon Bridges for a little extra soulfulness.

Something else from the press release:
Two of the acts boldly leading Texas music into the future have now delivered a second chapter of their groundbreaking collaboration, further extending the region’s sonic possibilities. Singer/songwriter Leon Bridges, from Ft. Worth, and trailblazing Houston trio Khruangbin have joined forces for the Texas Moon EP, a follow-up to 2020’s acclaimed Texas Sun project. While the five new songs are clearly a continuation of the first EP, they also have an identity all their own—Bridges calls it “more introspective,” while Khruangbin bassist Laura Lee says it “feels more night time.”

Favorites 2,5

1. Slow, lonesome, sounds like a desert western, smoky male vocal
2. Catchy, reminds me of old reggae
3. Vocals high in mix, slow pace
4. Contemplative, meandering vocals over repetitive (1-chord?) melody
5. Poppy and a little sad
