Fresh Noise: Future Soul

"Life is like a story, and everyone is their own author."
Can we keep the music (and fashion) imports coming in from Down Under please? There is no denying that artists like Goyte and Kimbra have certainly injected a breath of fresh Southern Pacific air into the current music scene. Hiatus Kaiyote are an independent future soul group based in Melbourne. They immediately put me in the mind of Little Dragon with more of a jazzy vibe and Vocalist Nai Palm's voice is soulfully intoxicating not much unlike Yukimi's. They released their debut album TAWK TOMAHAWK in April of this year, definitely worth a listen. Malika and Nakamarra are repeat worthy tunes for sure.
