Three decades into an unparalleled career, Kid Koala continues to grow his immersive this-dimensional real[1]life cartoon musical universe with each orbit around the sun. Entitled Creatures Of The Late Afternoon, the new double album is the soundtrack to an accompanying board game centered around a cast of creatures who band together through the power of music to save their habitat from destruction. Creatures Of The Late Afternoon is what the world renowned DJ, composer, and lifelong visual storyteller also known as Eric San calls "a journey through some of my favorite musical universes through the turntables." What started as a testing ground for creating turntable tracks in different styles took shape as the score to an action film-inspired love story. The resulting album, a twenty-track two-disc set of instrumental jaunts, featured guest vocalists, and robot hotel interludes, Creatures Of The Late Afternoon furthers Kid Koala's experimentation in electric, beat-driven, groove-laden, self-sampling, heartrending-even if-it's-heavy, purely beautiful music. Built integrally into the vinyl gatefold jacket, the board game is set at a communal hub of DIY recording studios where various bands of creatures collaborate to explore different ways of expressing and enjoying music.
