    I found out about these guys after Tosin Abasi gave them a shoutout on social media and my mind has been absolutely jumbled by them for days now. Absolute crazy musicianship and one of the most fascinating vocalists I've seen lately. They released an album this year called Choose Your Weapon and it's nuts :hbang:

    Tawk Tomahawk is a crazy album. I don't know if it's just me but I much prefer the studio albums to any live recordings of theirs. Seems like there's a little bit missing.

    All the live recordings I've heard by them so far are almost indistinguishable from the studio versions, their sound is crazy consistent live. The only thing I've noticed is that Nais vocals are a bit off sometimes but that's only natural when you're a touring singer, especially with the crazy intervals she needs to nail.

    Check out Sampa the great while you're digging Hiatus Kaiyote guys. she supported them on their last tour and also just released a album and a very rad Hiatus Kaiyote mixtape.

    Glad to see these guys get a mention on this board. They're awesome. Phenomenal live as well. I was lucky enough to catch them at a sold out show in Boston earlier this year. The singer is great but gets on my nerves after a while.

    I would check out the tune 'By Fire' for anyone curious.
