NYC & DC: Hiatus Kaiyote Live – November 5 & 8

 

GS_Hiatus Kaiyote_NYDC

Hot off their mystifying SummerStage performance a couple months back, we are proud to yet again present Melbourne’s internationally acclaimed Hiatus Kaiyote for two very special shows!

The two nights will take place on November 5 in NYC and November 8 in DC. In NYC, we’ll have opening sets by Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Emily King as well as the much loved DJ Rich Medina. In DC, the awesome DJ Thomas Blondet will be opening and setting the night off!

For those somehow still sleeping, the band fuses jazz, hip-hop, electronic, opera, rock and soul to concoct a truly disarming brand of future-soul like you’ve never heard. Hiatus Kaiyote released their debut album Tawk Tomahawk on July 30 via Sony Masterworks, and have received praise from highly-respected music industry staples like Questlove, Flying Lotus, Erykah Badu, Gilles Peterson, Stereogum, and KCRW. Legions of loyal fans and stans already abound – and with good reason!

Pirates of the Caribbean Soundtrack – Album Stream + Remix Contest

The Original Soundtrack for Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides features first-time collaboration with Oscar-winning Hans Zimmer and the acclaimed guitar duo Rodrigo y Gabriela. For the fourth movie they wanted a new sound and they found a perfect combination with these musicians. “I’ve been a big fan of Mexican guitarists Rodrigo y Gabriela for years now,” said Zimmer, “and I asked them if they wanted to come and play with us. We’ve been having a really great time with them being part of the musical world this film gets to inhabit.”

The Indaba Remix Contest launched this week, in which users are asked to remix two tracks from the soundtrack. The winning remixes will be featured on Indaba and AOL’s Spinner. And yesterday, KCRW hosted the premiere of “The Pirate That Should Not Be” – check out the blog to stream the single.

You can also stream the full soundtrack on the film’s official Facebook Page — “Like” this page to hear it.

Pre-order The Original Soundtrack on iTunes (Available May 17th)
