Kid Koala is one of Ninja Tune’s finest – with a fine track record of videos. Now with a new album coming out, 12 bit Blues, he’s made an excellent job directing the video for 8 bit Blues (Chicago to LA to NY) himself.
With a map of the USA, and lots of toys, phones, and other objects – including little toy versions of turntables and keyboards and suitcases that magically follow a pen-drawn track – the ‘Kid’ has made a very engaging one shot video that illustrates the plane flights described in the song – from Chicago to LA to New York – and their very similar area phone codes. And the track is very cool too…
