1996

Somehow, it’s been 20 years since 1996 – perhaps the first year I started to really listen to music. Back then, I was enrolled in several CD clubs in which I’d buy an album and then receive like eight more for free in the mail. Life was weird before the internet took over. Anyways, here are my favorite records from way back when.

Beck, Odelay
Best track: “Jack-Ass”

Dave Matthews Band, Crash
Best track: “Two Step”

Fugees, The Score
Best track: “Killing Me Softly”

Jamiroquai, Travelling Without Moving
Best track: “Virtual Insanity”

Phish, Billy Breathes
Best track: “Prince Caspian”

Sublime, Sublime

Khruangbin

Khruangbin

Khruangbin is a three-piece band from Texas, comprised of Laura Lee on bass, Mark Speer on guitar, and Donald Johnson on drums. Taking influence from 1960’s Thai funk – their name literally translates to “Engine Fly” in Thai – Khruangbin is steeped in the bass heavy, psychedelic sound of their inspiration, Tarantino soundtracks and surf-rock cool.

Listen to their debut album, The Universe Smiles Upon You.
