Kishi Bashi: 151a
Buy! - (Joyful Noise)
151a is the excellent solo debut album from Kishi Bashi, a Seattle-born, East Coast-raised violin virtuoso, composer, touring member with Regina Spektor, Sondre Lerche, Alexi Murdoch, and recent addition to Of Montreal's line-up. Reminiscent of the unique individual talents of Andrew Bird, Jónsi, and Owen Pallett, Kishi Bashi brings a soaring, inventive streak to his avant-pop creations that are immaculately, intricately arranged with gorgeous sonic layers alongside anthemic, celebratory bursts, propelled by both his robust, string-heavy instrumentation and operatic vocals. 3/30/2012 - Alex
