I just had to run that shit back a few times.

This album is to me far superior to Tawk Tamahawk which just showed me they had mad potential the the ability to make some incredible shit. But also some shit that ain't move me.

I'm really digging this all the way through so far.

Much better than Tawk Tamhawk to me but it is a little long. It might be an even stronger album with a little trimming. I'm not sure where I would do that yet because there aren't really weak cuts. There's still nothing quite as good or accessible as Nakamarra which I would say is one of the best songs of the last 5-10 years. I have no idea what Nai Palm is talking about on most of these tracks, but despite that they're still very, very good. The groove is undeniable. Another example of how 2015 is the year that keeps on giving. This immediately goes onto the best of the year so far list.

The standouts so far are
Shaolin Monk Motherfunk
Breathing Underwater
Fingerprints
The Lung
Molasses (which was the star of the EP)
Building a Ladder

HK's music doesn't need interludes because it's already musical enough. There are plenty of moments with the band playing and no vocals and their music can often be disjointed with the vocal and non-vocal parts being very different.

man, y'all really not feeling 'jekyll' or 'borderline with my atoms'? seriously?

this bangs man... i pretty much like the whole lot, apart from 'swamp thing'. 'by fire is alright', but i don't really ride for it like that.

i think this is WAY better than tawk. and i'll take a 70 minute album if it this damn good.

Loved Tawk.
Loved the By Fire EP (which I see were just joints from this new one).

I havne't heard it yet, but I've also heard it's a bit long.

This is brand new music here. Has anyone ever heard anything like this??

Those first chords on "Swamp Thing" are straight out of the Miles Davis playbook.

Nai Palm is pretty amazing as a songwriter, and her vocal technique is both traditional and unorthodox. It's stunning that this kind of vocal power comes from someone that tiny.
I prefer music that demands my attention, so I can't really listen to this album with doing something else. Definitely my favorite soul album of the year, I enjoyed this MUCH more than D'angelo's record.

Truthfully, take the three cuts on the By Fire EP released in January (Laputa, Molasses, By Fire), Breathing Underwater, Atari and Swamp Thang and you have an incredible EP. The rest is nice but forgettable IMO.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Interesting how much it feels of a kin to Soulquarian material circa 2002, whether just a matter of obvious shared influences or being directly influenced by that era of Badu/Roots/Common/Dilla records.

My one real complaint is that the sequencing is kinda goofy, which I think is what really exacerbates some of the length complaints above. The interludes can really throw off the pace, and the EP tracks (especially Laputa and By Fire) seem wildly out of place in the structure of the record.

Swamp Thing and The Lung are my current highlights, with Fingerprints and Atari being jams that would probably have been saved as non-album B-sides back in the day.

she looked a little tight to start

but they got cookin' real quick

might be the biggest audience for them

IDK, but there was that look in the eye at the opening

sheeit, the greek might be the biggest venue that LD played for as a headliner

I know they were at coachella last year

but they were still doing gigs at Pappy & Harriet's

really happy for them

happy for both of them.

Nai's hippy dippy overly metaphorical lyrics detract from the strength of the songs at times. but her voice, vocal phrasing and melodic choices make her actual words secondary, HOW she sings is a manifestation of beauty

They don't sell direct to consumer. All their releases are available in the better record stores in Europe or online.

They told me to google the barcode of a specific release (check www.musiconvinyl.com) and you'll find it that way.

but I get you.

If you're curious, I think Flying Buddha reprinted the blue one I'm referring to domestically, so you should be able to get it here in the States if you want it. I was fortunate enough to snag what I think was one of the last copies fatbeats.com had in their stock roughly 2-3 months ago, when I first got hipped to the band via Anderson.Paak's sample from Malibu.

Amazing show. I love everything about this band. It seems like they take little bits of all the different types of music I like and make something new out of it. They were only selling CD's at the show though, no vinyl

right now my three favs are "Shaolin Monk Motherfunk", "Swamp Thing" and "The Lung"

the only thing I would cut are "Prince Minikind" and the intro. THAS IT

the changes, the melodies, the layers, are just evocative

jammin' out

and then the beat switches

Hol' up (c)

actually a testament to them as musicians to pull off all these breaks and stuff live

LAPUTA GOES!!!

and the song I HAD TO HEAR after the show was Nakamarra

old, but that's the one that stuck with me

My new favorite band

the only complaint I have is Atari

I wouldn't complain if I never heard that song again in life

Found out about the group in a round about way (listening to Robert Glasper's Miles Davis experiment their remake of Little Church got me through many a hard day at work. Went to see what Haiatus was, and stumbled Breathing Underwater. The rest was a wrap). That album was in rotation for 4 months straight. I can't remember an album resonating with me like that since Portishead's Third. While it wasn't perfect it was easily one of my favorite albums in years. Can't wait to see how they progress.

Mainly curious if it's worthwhile and worth the dollars to become a member of their Patreon.

In response to Reply # 91


          

That I know from Nai Palm's instagram....but they haven't said anything about releasing it.

I dunno if dropping an album that they can't tour makes sense for them financially tho.

That said, whenever it drops I'm paying for it (hopefully some nice colored vinyl).

which is why I check every day for news of an impending release. (I'm right there with you on the vinyl tip)

>I dunno if dropping an album that they can't tour makes sense for them financially tho.
makes me wonder how other artists are making it work. didn't Khruangbin drop Mordechai well after lockdown became a thing?

or intentionally holding it back, only that it was likely another album had been recorded by now. I am kinda surprised to hear it was finished just that recently, tho.

simply knowing a new joint (two, even!) exists makes me happy. I can be patient.

I guess $5 is a low bar to find out.
I don't care about vlog type content.
I'm more interested in hearing unreleased stuff,
or just having access to music that's not available to the public.

95. "I'm a member of the patreon"
In response to Reply # 90


  

          

It started kinda strong, but it's fizzled out quite a bit.
At the beginning they did a Nai Palm live performance, a Swooping Live performance... maybe a couple others. Some Q&A sessions. They were taking merch suggestions and designs. Then they went pretty quiet.
They've also given early access to the Swooping Project and to Bender's rapping album or whatever.

But the latest is that they've got 2 albums done (or close to it).
The first is called Mood Valiant. It's mixed and mastered and they're currently shopping it to labels. The second, I think they might still be finishing up.

98. "Truly disappointed in the 5 year Hiatus"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

I saw them live on Halloween last year

REALLY disappointed

No new songs and the sound was GAHBAGE!!!

I hope these were just hiccups and I know nai palm had a bout with cancer

They were a true find for me

I was first exposed to them when the opened for Little Dragon...all those years ago

Immediate fan

They are ridiculous live...with all the changes, etc...

Hoping that's not a 'were' and they can recapture some of that same allure that brought me in

...yeah, that Halloween show was not it.
