Hiatus Kaiyote release Mood Variant Remix LP
Australian band Hiatus Kaiyote, have released their remix album Mood Variant via Brainfeeder Records/Ninja Tune. The 10-track project includes remixes from Nick Hakim, Georgia Anne Muldrow, Stro Elliot, Salami Rose Joe Louis, DJ Khalil, Teebs and Mndsgn for new renditions of nine of the tracks from their album Mood Valiant released last year. The band celebrated their Grammy nomination for Best Progressive R&B Album at the awards this past weekend.
Hiatus Kaiyote will be performing with Flying Lotus and Orchestra at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles on August 21st before they embark on their 10-date European tour this fall. The European leg begins in Berlin on September 29th with stops in Dublin, London and Paris before wrapping up in Barcelona on October 18th.
Mood Valiant was released after a six-year period where the band spent time touring, writing, and recording before landing in Rio de Janeiro in 2019 to work with legendary Brazilian arranger Arthur Verocai. The result is an album, bookended by Verocai’s strings, that relaxes into a groove: sunlit, beguiling, masterful. Behind everything is Hiatus’ familiar sense of musical adventure, their knack for making the complex sound simple, evident in previously-released singles “Get Sun”, “Chivalry Is Not Dead” and “Red Room,” which saw them receive co-signs from Kehlani, Doja Cat, Willow Smith and Virgil Abloh, among others.
Hiatus Kaiyote is Naomi “Nai Palm” Saalfield (guitar, vocals), Paul Bender (bass), Simon Mavin (keys), and Perrin Moss (drums). Mood Valiant is the follow up to their 2015 album Choose Your Weapon, which Rolling Stone described as “a stunning step up” and also comes after being sampled on songs by The Carters (Beyonce & Jay-Z), Kendrick Lamar, Anderson .Paak, Chance The Rapper, and Drake—with whom Nai Palm also collaborated with on his Scorpion album.
