Welcome to another edition of Knock Knock: New Music! If you’re in the mood to dance, I’ve got a track for you. It’s from Norwich, England duo Sink Ya Teeth. Gemma Cullingford and Maria Uzor weave a ferocious web of 80’s & 90’s inspired dance grooves laced with post-punk bass.
Their second LP entitled “Two” is out February 28th on Buffalo Records and I find this tune mesmerizing. It’s called “The Hot House.”
Houston, Texas trio Khruangbin claim to be heavily influenced by Thai funk. I didn’t even know there was such a thing. You can also hear elements of psychedelia, soul, and surf in their music.
Now they’ve teamed-up with Fort Worth soul artist Leon Bridges to release a four-song EP entitled “Texas Sun,” available now on the Dead Oceans label. I’m going with the title-track. It’s twangy… It’s country-ish. I like it! It’s waiting for you now on the Knock Knock: New Music playlist. Happy listening! -Kristen
