Australian ensemble Hiatus Kaiyote present Choose Your Weapon, their second album, and by the sounds of it the weapons on offer are Soul, R&B, Funk and Future versions of all of the above. And over eighteen tracks and seventy minutes, they get the chance to deploy them all! A very accomplished work all told.

8/10 Victoria Varnes Customer review, 15th May 2015

Hiatus Kaiyote never fails to disappoint- and I think that shows considering they're just kicking off their U.S. tour, and have already sold out seven shows. Tawk Tomahawk was a hard album to follow up- I pre-ordered this CD months ago when I first heard it would be coming out and had high hopes but was prepared for disappointment compared to how much I loved the first album. I was definitely wrong.

They incorporated new elements that I was incredibly happy to see on this album- the electronic sounds in Atari, and the interesting rhythms backing "I've been running, running but the riot hunts for you / Give me the timeless corridors of your meadows" on Laputa just to name a few. With a length of 18 tracks, I feel that I definitely got my money's worth and can't wait to see them at Trees in Dallas. (Also- watch the video that they've spoken about a few times- a special message from Nai Palm, the front woman of the band to hear a bit about her creative process. Worth a few minutes out of your day.)


5/10 Cai Sumption Customer review, 12th May 2015

I was initially drawn to this record by its undeniably fantastic cover. However, the music I discovered on this release far from matched the quality of its art work. This record to me sounds very much like just another neo soul album. But even then I feel this record fails to meet the standard of quality of the genre it so clearly yearns to be apart of. I did very much enjoy the unpredictable nature of the song arrangements on this record, though apart from that all you'll find on this release is sub par vocals, mediocre production and forgettable musicianship.
