In 2013, the producer and D.J. Bonobo released his version of “Late Night Tales,” the long-running musician-curated album series. The compilation’s theme was serene songs meant to soundtrack the night, and he included “A Calf Born in Winter” from a band called Khruangbin, an upstart Houston trio that hadn’t yet made a full album. After the trio released its breakthrough second album, “Con Todo El Mundo,” in 2018, its songs appeared on TV shows like “Barry” and “The Blacklist”; Jay-Z became a fan; and the group grew into one of the best-selling acts on the American indie label Dead Oceans.
