Live Review: Hiatus Kaiyote - The Metro Theatre, Sydney (20.08.15)

With the release of their debut Tawk Tomahawk in 2013, Hiatus Kaiyote emerged fully formed from the Melbourne suburbs, playing the kind of kaleidoscopic soul jazz that was so far beyond anything else in the scene that they transcended it straight away - all the way into the Grammy Awards. The track "Nakamurra", featuring Q-Tip, earned them the honour of being the first Australian band ever nominated for an R &B Grammy, bringing with it plenty of highbrow international acclaim long before they became recognisable to most at home.

We continue out interview with Hiatus Kaiyote, talking about the release date of their upcoming album Choose Your Weapon – May 4th. Despite the date’s significance in pop culture by referring to ‘may the force,’ the band insists it was unintentionally placed there, exclaiming: “Nai has never seen Star Wars!” They all briefly discuss what Star Wars characters they would be, before moving on to touring news.

the AU review’s Larry Heath caught up with Hiatus Kaiyote while at Austin’s SXSW festival. In amidst the chaos, band members Nai Palm, Paul Bender, Perrin Moss and Simon Mavin were able to take time out to chat about what it’s like playing SXSW again. “It’s almost just like there’s a bunch of industry people there to see if you can hack just trying to deal with the horrible bullshit,” Bender said. “But it’s not always bad!” Separating the boys from the men, as the old saying goes.

Festival Review: Woodford Folk Festival Day Three & Four - Woodfordia, Queensland (29-30.12.14)

As dawn rose over day three of the Woodford Folk Festival, revelers didn’t seem to mind the pitter-patter of rain felt on their thongs, boots or whatever else was deemed appropriate attire for that day (Some even felt underwear was appropriate to strut around, not that I’m complaining, I only mention that in bemusement). Little did anyone know that the pitter-patter would turn into something significant, but more of that later.
