Hiatus Kaiyote "Shaolin Monk Motherfunk" [Listen][Amazon][iTunes]

Hiatus Kaiyote’s eclectic brand of soul and R&B was on full display on 2015 highlight Choose Your Weapon. While nearly every song on that collection could be included on a “Best Of…” list, it’s the set’s opener that truly set our hearts aflutter. Essentially three songs in one, “Shaolin Monk Motherfunk” starts soft and sweet with a swinging jazzy opening as Nai Palm lovingly invites us to “drop into the bass.” Soon, though, we’re trotting along to a clipped, repetitive groove that’s constantly blossoming into layers and layers of instrumentation. But before it’s all over, we’re transported back to the jazzy sway of the beginning, but this time it’s dipped in electronic psychedelia as the band brings it on home and rocks out. It’s at once tender, endearing, loving, gorgeous and exhilarating...in other words, it’s distinctly Hiatus Kaiyote. -- D-Money
