News just in is that the new Hilltop Hoods album ‘The Calling’ is triple J’s ‘feature album of the week’ for next week. This not only recognises Hilltop Hoods as the accomplished artists that they are, but proves how dedicated the station is to supporting and promoting top quality Australian talent.
Hilltop Hoods have been performing live and writing hip hop music for over ten years. During this time their successful independent releases Back Once Again, A Matter Of Time, and Left Foot, Right Foot have established them as affluent songwriters and have gained them a mass of attention both in Australia and on international shores. On the stage, Hilltop Hoods consisting of MC’s Suffa, Pressure and DJ Debris, bring their music alive with their warm-blooded rhymes and electric stage presence. Their trademark combination of jazz influenced beats, solid lyrics, tight flows and a localised viewpoint is why so many people are talking about Hilltop Hoods and why they won’t be labelled up-and-coming for much longer. Their latest album ‘the calling’ is out now through Obese Records.
Their national album launch tour is currently underway with the Adelaide event happening this Saturday night at the Planet Nightclub.
