Nai Palm - Needle Paw (2xLP - 180 Gram Vinyl + Inserts)

$31.99

Needle Paw is the first solo album by Nai Palm, the lead singer and composer of R&B future soul outfit Hiatus Kaiyote.

A two-time Grammy nominated singer, songwriter and musician from Melbourne, Australia, Nai Palm is a composer, instrumentalist, producer, vocalist and poet who approaches all of these self-taught disciplines with an intuitive, infectious grace. This gift has sent her and her band Hiatus Kaiyote on a journey to sculpt songs that have been received and treasured across the globe.

Comprised almost entirely of her guitar playing and vocal arrangements, Needle Paw is the rawest glimpse into Nai Palm's musical world. It is dreamlike, honest, and beautifully transparent, revealing her musical ruminations to listeners with a courageous vulnerability and artistic generosity.

Needle Paw features acoustic versions of Hiatus Kaiyote favorites ''Atari,'' ''Mobius,'' ''When The Knife,'' ''Molasses,'' and ''Borderline With My Atoms''. ''Breathing Underwater'' from Choose Your Weapon is featured in a medley with David Bowie's composition ''Blackstar'' and Radiohead's ''Pyramid Song''. The second non-Hiatus Kaiyote cover on the album is of Jimi Hendrix's iconic composition ''Have You Ever Been (To Electric Ladyland)'' on which Nai celebrates the soulful side of Hendrix. There are six new tracks on the album written by Nai including the ''Homebody'' which she refers to as her ''purest offering... a sanctuary to lick your wounds... without acrobatics''. Also featured is the medley ''Crossfire/So Into You'' which dives into a topic that Nai rarely writes about... romantic relationships. The outro of the song is a cover of Tamia's ''So Into You.''

In offering an overview, Nai states: ''this record is a very personal leap into the deep end. I wanted to make something with no landmarks to hide behind and no team to fall back on.''
