BEST NEW TRACKS: HAIKU HANDS - NOT ABOUT YOU
DAMN. Some great minds came together to create the magic that is Haiku Hands, that’s for sure. After reading their bio on triple j’s website (also the radio station that’s working to break them) I can tell that this silly squad of ladies have got far more credentials in the scene than your average supergroup of hip-hoppers. Think MIA meets Major Lazer, with the sense of humor of the Beastie Boys. They’ve got style. They’ve got flair. They’ve got fun attitudes. They’ve got a great first single. What more do you need?
HAIKU HANDS - NOT ABOUT YOU
Moombah-inspired Rave Drums lead the way for this squad of rappers (with more personality than your entire group of friends) to lay down some of the best danceparty-punk-rap since the Beasties first broke on the scene thirty years ago. I already expect his infectious genre-spanning Aussie party tune to be the song of the summer. If it isn’t, then sweet we got a bomb ass summer ahead of us.
About Kurt Kroeber
From deep within the murky depths of the Los Angeles River emerged a creature: 50% raver, 50% comedian, 10% Robotcop. Kurt Kroeber doesn’t own a dog, operates Soundbleed (the world’s only dance party comedy talk show rave), and is down to party with you. Come up some time and say “Hey dude!” But definitely make sure to casually drop the secret Illuminati password.
