Multi-Dimensional, Polyrhythmic Gangster Shit. That is Hiatus Kaiyote. That’s the reason I can’t get enough of them.
This band had me feigning for their sounds back in 2013, and I’ve been anxiously awaiting their full length, major label release to be scheduled for release. In the mean time, their latest EP, “By Fire” (which you can purchase from their website: www.hiatuskaiyote.com) and whatever other nuggets they decide to unleash to their fans will have to suffice for the moment.
Well, they’ve recently covered the Gorillaz recording “DARE” for the Australian radio station Triple J and there’s video of the sublime performance. I’ve posted the original Gorillaz video for the composition below so you can compare and contrast.
Oi. Can’t wait for more Hiatus Kaiyote!
