Their debut studio album, The Universe Smiles Upon You, drew from 60s Thai music, while their second album, Con Todo El Mundo, had influences from Spain and the Middle East and their latest album, Mordechai, peaked at the number 31 spot on the Billboard 200 chart and, draws influence from West Africa, India, Vietnam, Germany, Czech Republic and Mexico. With Slant Magazine saying "While past Khruangbin albums risked coming off merely as studied tributes to the microcosms of Thai and Iranian rock, Mordechai finds Khruangbin coming into their own, thanks to the band’s lyrical development and the honing of their fusion of intercontinental influences," about the album.
