    Hi.

    I thought this was interesting, informative, telling, and fairly hilarious.

    Phew, at least the bassist had a second instrument for Bohlinger to comment on, even if the brand was unknown...

    OMG this guy does everything wrong! One guitar? What? An un-modded amp, old strings? One pick, are you kidding me? If he were on TDPRI, we could straighten him right out.

    They are fantastic. If musical ability is the bar Khruangbin are certainly the most talented 3 piece currently. Laura Lee is amazing. Mark Speer
    I think is a genius. Not saying it lightly. But in the real definition, continuously stretching his own limits. He is brilliant. Like their music or don’t, I’d struggle to name a more creative guitarist in the USA right now.
    And Donald Johnson, you could set your metronome by him. His timing is insane.
    I’m glad to see them getting props. They are great. And I love that they are introducing a generation to new influences. Rock/pop needs people to force change once in a while.

    Oh, the post is about gear, yeah, they don’t have a lot.

    8 hours on Sunday! and i thought playing G C D for 20 minutes was tough.

    but maybe that's what it takes to get that good.

    Hi.

    Yes, they are great. I had then on a lot yesterday, which is what prompted me to go looking on the internet.

    I love the Pitchfork concert, cos I like watching them play. Especially enjoy watching the drumming. He is so smooth and it’s almost beguiling how effortless he makes it look.

    And yeah, you’re right, the intent of the post is more about ‘not gear.’ I was worried I was being too smart for my own good.

    Hi.

    Ha ha, I’m such an idiot. For a few more moments than I care to admit, I was thinking I’d have to Google that acronym, GCD, to find out where you were playing...:rolleyes:

    Isn't he great? He looks like he's not even paying attention. His drumming is very good but really, he's like a clock, so precise. The Pitchfork video is really great. They did a record with Leon Bridges last year that is also worth checking out if you're interested.
    Speer is just a book of influences, he's got a very wide view of music. They are impressive.

    That is great....I can see Bollinger trying to find something to talk about gear-wise.

    I dig this guy's approach.

    add Emin and Bmin and you've got about three quarters of the P&W canon.

    Thanks for introducing me to this band. I’ve been listening to them this afternoon.

    I use the same Jazz III until I lose it. Going on about a year with the current one.

    I only have one pick as well. It looks like his. Been using it for I don't know how many years. I only have one electric guitar. I only have one amp. I currently have no pedals (may add 2 or 3 at some point). I'm pretty simple as well.

    I can’t play with more than one or two pedals anymore. Why should I when this is the rig?

    Someone here turned me on to them a year or so ago, and they are VERY unique....both musically and "philosophically". I've seen this interview before, so I didn't watch again.(yet) I don't recall if it mentioned Laura Lee's bass, which is a cheap import, although I'm sure it's been set up to play well. They have played with a number of "guest" musicians, such as local Ft Worth guy Leon Bridges.....but I like them best by themselves.
    Here's a short Tiny Desk performance, for those who aren't familiar.

    Btw.....Mark and Laura both are wearing wigs. They "say" they do it so they wander around in the crowd before and after a gig.

    "You can get that Stevie Ray Vaughan sound... which I f***ing hate."

    That was great. :)

    Listening to the NPR video -- yeah, I'm into this. Thank you for sharing it!
