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 !!!

Blink and you’ll miss a revolution.

Cut Copy has more play in the US than most of their Aussie colleagues – but they are still worth noting just in case someone has missed the memo.

This video in particular was directed and produced by Division Paris, which makes it that much more special (though I’m not going to comment on the ape theme).

Name: Cut Copy

Origin: Melbourne

Feel: So much more than synthpop

Bonus Track: Tory y Moi Re-work
