'12 Bit Blues' (album stream)
In interviews, Kid Koala mastermind Eric San has explained that this is his own take on a blues record. Don't expect it be be filed under roots music in your local record shop, however; San's unique approach to the blues was of course created via his unique turntable approach.
San has noted that many of today's popular music traditions trace back to blues. With this modern approach to an old form, he has made the connection between old and new genres all the more apparent.
Limited early edition copies of 12 Bit Blues come with a cardboard, hand-powered turntable and a flexi disc. Watch a video of how that works right here, and order a copy right here. Like we said -- no one does it quite like Kid Koala.
Also, previously reported, Kid Koala has several North American dates coming up. You can see all those stops here.
