"Space K.K." is a K.K. Slider song that first appears in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. The song's English name refers to space rock, a subgenre of progressive rock and psychedelic rock characterized by a heavy focus on reverb, electronics, and instrumental texture, deemphasized percussion, trancelike vocals, and science fiction-themed lyrical imagery.

Meanwhile, the song's Japanese name, translating to "Minimal Music," is a reference to minimalist music, a postmodern genre that originated from America in the 1960s; fitting for minimalism, the song contains sparse, repeated melodies with limited amounts of instruments. However, unlike the classically-based music that defined minimalism in its original form, "Space K.K." is more rooted in the electronic minimalism characteristic of mid-to-late 1970's works in the genre such as Discreet Music and Low by British art rock musicians Brian Eno and David Bowie, respectively.

Album cover[edit]

The album cover for "Space K.K." depicts the word "minimal" ("Space K.K." in New Horizons) on top of nine frames containing pictures of K.K. Slider, which are all the same except for a picture in the bottom left of the cover, which features his eyes closed. The cover was likely inspired by The Beatles' album A Hard Day's Night.
