You’ve probably caught “Get Sun” a couple times on our airwaves and recently wondered, “when is HK gonna drop a new LP?”. Well, today, commemorating their first full decade together, Melbourne’s Hiatus Kaiyote just issued their third full-length, Mood Valiant. True to its name, Mood Valiant hears Hiatus Kaiyote taking a concentrated approach to their jazz-funk chill-out symphony, with each extended jam showing as much forethought as their more concise companions.
All in all, Mood Valiant is best experienced in its entirety, so that Hiatus Kaiyote can score you in and out of conscious thought, but if you need a quick intro to what may very well be your favorite record of 2021, look no further than “Red Room”!

In this edition of Liner Notes Rabbi Neil Blumofe acknowledges what Miles Davis can teach us through this approach, not only in music but in our daily lives.
