Hiatus Kaiyote - Choose Your Weapon

Available:Out of Stock

    Recorded during a heavy 2014 road tour in Australia and America, Choose Your Weapon was born. The sophomore album from HK takes cues, much like their first album, from Jazz, Soul, Hip Hop, Funk + more but throws all conventions out the window and starts from the bottom. The outcome is very much their sound... While acts like Platinum Pied Pipers, Up Hygh, and even Erykah Badu have let us know that the future, as bleak as predicted, still cherishes the soul (this is how I said 'future soul' without saying 'future soul'). Written by all members of the group, Choose Your Weapon was executive produced by long time Hip Hop and R&B mainstay Salaam Remi.
