Any soul collective that has the musical brainpower to collaborate with Q-Tip soars straight to the top of my list of red wine jams. I haven't fallen so deep and quick in love since 340ml's 2003 album Moving.
Meet Hiatus Kaiyote, a foursome from Melbourne spreading positive vibrations of futuristic soul sounds.Nai Palm (get a load of that name) leads the band with eclectic zest, adorned with feathers and undeniable talent.
"Nakamarra" is only one of many songs off their debut album, Tawk Tomahawk, that is pure fire. The album as a whole mingles R&B, hip-hop, dub, and blues with an added sprinkle of electronic echoes just in case you weren't satisfied.
Tawk Tomahawk is available for purchase on Record Store Day -- an even better reason to look forward to this coming Saturday. Jump on it here.
