'Hoy, readers! Wander here. CA's recent Animal Crossing post got me thinking about the aspects of the series that I love most; in particular, its brilliant and jazzy music. Many of Animal Crossing's songs sound like something out of the Peanuts, but going to the Roost on a Saturday night will give you a chance to hear K. K. Slider's slick tunes. My personal favourite of Totakeke's compositions is “Cruisin',” a tight lick covered here by guitarist Mesmonium. There’s something about Cruisin’ that just demands to be grooved to, and we here are happy to oblige.
This song would sometimes be played in Smashville if you happened to catch one of K.K.’s shows, but here’s hoping that in Smash 4 it gets a remix as cool as this one. Enjoy!
[Bonus track: a fun jazz ensemble version of the same tune, arranged by Michael Saddekni and Brian Nabors. See it performed here!]
