Khruangbin & Men I Trust: Live at RBC Echo Beach
A new split live album featuring two of your favorite bands is a rarity and always a reason to celebrate. While I’m not always a huge fan of live recordings, this one hits the spot with some of my most loved Men I Trust tracks featuring extended guitar work. I guess if you are opening for Khruangbin, that sort of thing finds its way into your show. Emma Proulx from Men I Trust always sounds good and her breezy delivery with a hint of melancholy fuses perfectly with the pseudo-funk that the band brings.
While the Khruangbin recordings don't nessarily focus on their hits, they are always capable of bringing the heat. The solid foundation of the rhythm section provides a good anchor for some virtuoso-level guitar noodling.
