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...
