Kishi Bashi - Philosophize in it! Chemicalize with it!
I’ve been a fan of Kishi Bashi since I first heard Manchester but his new album, Lighght, is just wonderful. Yes, I do mean full of wonder. He sounds like everything you’ve heard before but never in his unique combination. In 3 minutes and 20 seconds this track takes you on a ride through strings, ascending Sufjan-esque highs, rolling drums and even a section that sounds like Vampire Weekend if the band was replaced with mice, not kidding.
If you want to check out more, Callie posted about him almost an exact year ago but really you should just start Lighght as soon as possible. Be ready to dance, get sad, laugh or feel the need to fall in love (especially with the album).
