Hidden Gem: Kid Koala (featuring Emilíana Torrini) "Collapser"

Kid Koala (aka Eric San) has generously shared a sublimely ambient track from his fifth studio album Music To Draw To: Satellite, to be released via Arts & Crafts on January 20, 2017. Based on this track alone I cannot wait for this album to drop:

So Good; Soul Good.

According to the media release: "A record of many firsts for Eric San, the inaugural volume in the Music To Draw To series finds Kid Koala collaborating with a singer, writing lyrics, and producing and performing all instruments. Satellite is the renowned audio-collagist’s first non-sample-based record, using an array of synthesizers, keys, guitars, basses, strings, turntables, noisemakers, and inventive recording techniques to create its celestial atmosphere."

Oh...now this is where it gets fascinating...the celestial atmosphere: "Music To Draw To: Satellite tells a heartrending tale of discovery and loss through the lens of lovers separated by a one-way space mission to Mars. The album’s eighteen spacious movements are threaded with eight lyrical songs written by Kid Koala in collaboration with (Icelandic singer) Emilíana Torrini."

Yes! So In.
