New Release: Hiatus Kaiyote – ‘Tawk Takeout’ Compilation + Download

 

One of our favorite new bands, Hiatus Kaiyote, is steady picking up steam and we couldn’t be happier. Thanks to their gaining popularity and cosigns ranging from Questlove to Gilles Peterson and Mark de Clive-Lowe, some admiring colleagues pitched in their skills for a remix compilation to Tawk Tomahawk. The new project, Tawk Takeout, takes the already dissonant and welcomingly busy sound to a whole new level of textures and clashes that compel you further into the depths of the Hiatus’ uncanny sonic brilliance.

Tawk Takeout includes remixes by Anthony Valadez, Shafiq Husayn, and Mark de Clive-Lowe as well as a vocal appearance by Miles Bonny. Stream and download for free below.

This album is a such a gem. Anthony Valadez has got a new video for another Just Visiting track called “Asleep” featuring the mystical Anna Wise of Sonnymoon on lullaby duty. We’ve totally spaced out to this track about seven times already and forgot to finish this post. Loving the dim evening mood to this video – it’s so dreamy.

We are loving all this Anthony Valadez goodness long time. And nothing sweeter than a full album stream for his new album, Just Visiting, which is indeed out now!

The first single that hit us like a ton of bricks also now has a video. Watch “Underwater” with Mar and The Park in an earthy sequence of a gorgeous lady finding her peace with the water and sand.

Firstly, Anthony Valadez murked it on that “Under Water” track with Mar last month. Go ahead and listen if you missed that somehow.

Most recently, he teamed up with LA vocalist Def Sound to release the short but sweet stop motion video for “Precious.” The nautical vibe tune shouts out Herbal Essence (remember how that was the jam back in the day?) and weird chicks. We’re into it.
