SXSW High: Hiatus Kaiyote


Hiatus Kaiyote is the quintessential music head’s band. Before we got out first dose of Hiatus Kaiyote at SXSW 2013, we kept hearing about them from some really dope musicians and DJs we know. The bar was set high and they did not disappoint. This is Hiatus Kaiyote’s first US tour and the American audience’s response, no matter which city, has been nothing short of reverence for this new band.

Listen, buy, support

Also, with a name like Nai Palm and a voice to match, we can’t help but categorize this under Birds Like !!!

Kilo Kish: Music We !!!

Last year we saw Gilles Peterson plug Kilo by bringing her out at his LPR DJ set for a live PA.  A well deserved plug.  Listen to her new mixtape here.

Stimela – from anti-apartheid to deep self reflection

I love following the journey music and musicians take. And how apt is it that the title of this song is Stimela, which means train.  I can honestly write a full essay about Wynter Gordon’s powerful control over her voice, the journey from the original Stimela by Hugh Masekela to her version on Doleo,  and how the this phase in Gordon’s career is going to be exponentially more inspiring than her songwriting and dance music background. Listen to her perform Stimela on NPR’s soundcheck, and check out Masekela’s version below.

your drums, your love


AlunaGeorge’s sound is both timely and nostalgic. I don’t know how they do it, but it works.

a nudge to send a “hello, again” e-mail


An illustrated and rather aloof version of resident lucidreamers’ Birds Like !!!,  Jenna Wortham, appeared in this Sunday’s NY Times sitting in a DeLorean revisiting her life on her phone. This is all types of awesome! We got our copy of the Sunday paper, but you can also read her article here.  Illustration by Yuko Shimizu.

Esthero – The Many Times (feat. Miguel)

Seems like Esthero puts out an album every 7 years. If this is any indication of what it will sound like, then we’re excited and will overlook the seven year hiatus.

Marta Minujin: The World is So Boring

Arte! Arte! Arte!  Marta Minujin’s simple but fervent motto leaves you with the feeling that in the absence of art, there remains little relevance to…anything.  The Argentine phenomenon has been shocking the world with her larger-than-life work since the 1950’s, and has set a new standard for ephemeral art.  From controversial paintings to dizzying installations, quirky fashion lines to LSD-inspired texts, breath-taking sculptures to prodigious effigies, and of course, the recurring reproduction and reinterpretation of the obelisk, Minujin’s art is nothing short of magic.  Magic mushrooms, that is.  Check out her latest projects here:

Yukimi Nagano: Birds like !!!

Seriously- Who doesn’t have a crush on Yukimi Nagano? With a voice like whipped honey butter, lyrics that can turn your day around, and an arresting stage presence, Yukimi, the lead vocalist of  Little Dragon, can usually be found with ‘a sold-out crowd in the palm of her hands’. We love all members of Little Dragon equally, but we cannot deny that Ms. Nagano is a lucidreamers approved bird like !!!

Download  Wildfire – Little Dragon’s collaboration with SBTRKT

Listen to Nightlight from Little Dragon’s upcoming album, Ritual Union. (Scheduled release – July 12th, 2011)

And then catch them on tour this summer. Yukimi is known to kirk out on various instruments in the middle of their set. This is not to be missed. Lucidreamers will be at the Roots Picnic on June 4th !!!
