A Year In Review: 2015 Music of the Year
Released May 1, 2015
Blending neo-soul with futuristic sounds, grabbing funk, adding a dash of samba and West African rhythms and wrapping themselves in R&B, "future soul band" Hiatus Kaiyote put forth one of the best albums of the year. Building momentum from their 2013 Grammy nominated "Nakamarra" performed with Q-Tip, the group continued with the new-wave jazzy grooves which lead to another Grammy nomination for Best R&B performance at the upcoming 58th Grammy Awards for their song "Breathing Underwater." Fearless in their pursuit to bring something different to the music industry Choose Your Weapon stands out as a piece of work that is as innovative as it is familiar.
