Episode #22 – April 16, 2014

kooEpisode 22 tees off with new music from interactive dance party duo Koo Koo Kanga Roo, before featuring tracks from veteran La Crosse songwriter Brahman Shaman, new MPLS electronic duo Tiny Deaths (feat. Claire de Lune & Grant Cutler), neo-soul & blues artist Chastity Brown, Quad Cities indie-pop act The Multiple Cat, MPLS chamber-pop collective We Are The Willows, and Decorah alt-folk singer Michelle Lynn.

What can be said about Koo Koo Kanga Roo that hasn’t already been said? (Well, to my knowledge no one has called them gorillas…at least yet.) This spring they’ll be making their indie label debut with Whoopty Whoop via Asian Man Records / Fun Fun Records. Aside from being welcome news and another much-deserved validation of their creative talents and hard work, it means that come May 13 Koo Koo Kango Roo’s music will be available on vinyl! This is very cool and certainly unique for an act that has traditionally only released their music online on a pay-what-you-want basis (not counting a recent best of-style compilation CD). No matter, their high-energy live show has always been at the forefront and, coinciding with the release of their new album, they’ll be rollin’ in the minivan all across the east coast this spring with the Aquabats. Kudos gentlemen! Can’t wait to bust out my Koo Koo themed Fischer-Price turntable…
