這個夏天我們很幸運地在Summer Sonic 2016與BLUE NOTE TOKYO爵士音樂廳觀賞Hiatus Kaiyote現場演出，比起錄音室版本更具渲染力的聆聽經驗幾乎很難以任何詞彙形容，根本無從想像他們如何構思、撰寫、甚至熟記歌曲的每個讓人醉心不已的轉折與段落。
強力推薦 "Breathing under water" ，出自專輯 "Choose your weapon"，這也是Hiatus Kaiyote在獲得2012年葛萊美獎最佳節奏藍調表演獎項提名後的第一張專輯，流動跳躍的聲線探討著日常的、無私的、廣義的愛，彷彿每個字句音符都有著獨立自主的生命力。
JEpqoue’s Weekend Playlist- Hiatus Kaiyote
Free-spirited combination of Neo-soul, left-field Hip-hop , alternative R&B, or you may describe their music as a sweet psychedelic adventure; an emotional missive to the whole nature; or a deep self-discovering journey, Australian music collective Hiatus Kaiyote defines a new wave of contemporary jazz in a multidimensional scale.
We were so lucky to enjoy their live performance at Summer Sonic and Blue Note Aoyama few months ago, it was undoubtedly dynamic and captivating, as you would wonder how could these songs be conceptualized and written, or even be memorized.
"Breathing under water", one of our favorite tracks comes from “Choose Your Weapon”, the band's follow-up to their 2012 Grammy-nominated debut "Tawk Tomahawk", which is a beautiful, beautiful song that stimulates imagination, and indicates different forms of love that we experience on a day-to-day basis.
Hope you guys will enjoy it : )
