I’m not sure how or when this track reared it’s naughty little head, but it resonates with me on many levels. As an Australian by birth who is happiest delving into the worlds of African and Electronic music, I feel (an admittedly unjustified) affinity with it.
As the first release on the newly formed Animals Dancing label, Coober Pedy University Band’s ‘Kookaburra’ is very unlike anything else i’ve ever heard. Leaning on a range of native Antipodean instruments and samples, it’s a warm 6 minutes of the loosest house I wished I’d heard long before I did.
Animals Dancing originate as a clubnight from Melbourne – the town I happened to be born in. Check out more information on the label via their Facebook page, and if you can tell me more about the phrase ‘Krautback’ i’ll be forever in your debt.
