“Summer Madness” — Khruangbin
Fresh off the release of their terrific sophomore album, Texas-trio Khruangbin is back with a psychedelic cover of "Summertime Madness". Originally by Kool & The Gang, the song was a common staple of Khruangbin's jam band-esque live performances but had never been publicly released until this week.
“Summer Madness’ became a staple in this medley that we play,” said drummer Donald "DJ" Johnson of the cover. “Specifically, one of my favorite things about it is the tone of the bass, which really reminds me a lot of Laura Lee’s bass which has this chunky, peanut butter, rich tone. It was always a special moment, getting to that song because, it just did something to the room, everywhere.”
