Every time I do one of these 'audio nostalgia' entries, I cringe when I realize when the record or song that I am posting about was originally released. Today is no different. Kula Shaker's 'K' record is 12yrs old already, having been released in 1996.
My access to and knowledge of really good music was quite limited when I was younger. I think Kula Shaker was the first band that I really got into that melded elements of world music into their rock sound. Indian and Middle Eastern sounds are all over this record, and I remember hearing it for the first time and loving it. This album hasn't aged as well for as a lot the records have that I have immortalized in 'audio nostalgia' blogs, but I dusted it off today and it was still fun to listen to.
