Additional Album Preview + Interview
As we enter the home stretch, we would once again like to thank all our backers. As a reminder, all backers will receive early access downloads to the full album on December 15th, 2012, as soon as this Kickstarter closes.
Below we have included another preview track from the album.
Titled 'Little Allan's Big Polka' the song's original concept for this song was "an anime friendship speech turned polka" but from there it somehow changed to become more of a shōnen manga plot of some kind.
Little Allan is obviously inspired by Big Al, and Tony is actually named after Zero-G's opera VOCALOID, Tonio. Considering order of release, it doesn't make much sense, but Tonio was a convenient face to make into a rival figure.
Musical inspirations include the folk dance music of Eastern Europe, and of course the Ievan Polkka. Ievan Polkka, spelled with an I and two Ks.
The art included in the promo is by Aki Glancy. She is one of the collaborators who will be appearing in the album's insert booklet and if you haven't seen it already, she recently interviewed Koda in 【Aki Interviews】Special Guest Koda-P.
