    In the remarkably short time that it has been a band, Hiatus Kaiyote has managed to create and record two successful albums, each of which earned a Grammy nomination in the category “Best R&B Performance.” The band formed in 2011 in Melbourne, Australia and has ever since been producing soul music infused with the ethos and attitude of indie rock. For their latest album, Choose Your Weapon, the members of Hiatus Kaiyote relied heavily on their home studio and the… View this story

    Artistic, psychedelic rock foursome, Bo Ningen has recently added an Audient iD22 USB audio interface to their recording setup. Lead singer, Taigen Kawabe’s initial reaction to the new arrival was surprise at “the clarity and honest sounds from the iD22,” later adding, “I would say the mic preamp surprised me the most. It’s super-clear and can capture such a wide range of frequency.” A wide frequency range is certainly what these musical racketeers need, with Taigen confirming that the band… View this story

    Having earned fame as the co-founder and front man of ‘80s Australian pop band Men at Work (“Down Under,” “Overkill,” “Who Can it Be Now?”), singer/songwriter Colin Hay went on to craft a career as a solo artist, with twelve solo albums to date.
