He released the latest "episode" yesterday, and this one has a video. I was pretty pumped at first, and, well.. Just give it a watch.
This oddly filmed short video is probably the first time I've had visual representation during a Kavinsky track. This is to say, I can see where Kavinsky was going with this. Even though it has its R. Kelly is Trapped in the Closet moments, it's able to keep you watching what would be a pretty dull chase scene without the music.
Or maybe I'm fanboying too hard and my judgement is clouded. I should explain why this is a big deal.
It took me time and dedication to realize what Kavinsky was doing. He doesn't just say "oh look, this is a story so hear it out and put it together". No, he just leaves it there and lets you realize on your own.
The gist of the story is he crashes his Ferrari Testarossa in 1986 while trying to evade the police (I think), he dies, he tells his girlfriend he's dead (Nightcall) and, well I've been confused from that point on because just about every track is instrumental. Much like today's, which has a video.
Now, with this release, even the title gives a clear idea on what's gonna happen, especially when put up next to the video. Whatever happens next, Kavinsky is gonna be Outrun-ing with his ghost car. It might not be much of a story, but I'm happy it's there.
Outrun's release is set for early 2013, but early is a relative term so I'm hoping it'll release by February. I'm excited.
