I love my job.
Grammy nominated Hiatus Kaiyote are arguably the most exciting band to come out of Melbourne in the last few years. Praised by such RnB/Soul gods as Erykah Badu and Questlove (The Roots), this insanely talented four piece’s soulful tunes (and singer Nai Palm’s sultry vocals) are truly minblowing. If you haven’t heard them yet, get out from under that rock and do your ears a favour.
The lineup also introduced me to Great Earthquake, a one-man-loop-pedal-machine, layering all manner of instruments to create some awesome and complex rhythms; and The Harpoons – a smooth toned RnB/Soul act extremely worth your time.
