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.

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.

Gotye: Music We !!!

There is something familiar and comforting – and at the same time haunting – about his music.  This song in particular evokes an intense feeling of nostalgia, whose source may not be entirely clear to you at first…
