Well, for once it looks like I'm first here to mention an artist that I'm late in discovering.
Hiatus Kaiyote is an Australian "future soul" band who have been around a few years. Their 2013 debut album Tawk Tomahawk is very good, but their second album Choose Your Weapon (2015) is outstanding. Apparently Prince was a fan, and they've mingled with various individuals on the US scene. When my daughter first played them for me a couple days ago, I thought Chris Dave had to be the drummer, but no....it was these guys. All four musicians are very strong and the writing is full of harmonic depth and surprising syncopations. One of the nicest new things to hit my ear in a long time in that style. See what you think!
