Kishi Bashi: 151a

Map Unavailable



New York-based composer, singer and violinist Kishi Bashi will release his solo album / orchestral project 151a on April 10, 2012 via Joyful Noise Recordings. Having collaborated with the likes of Of Montreal, Regina Spektor, and Sondre Lerche, Kishi is finally garnering national attention under his own name (several friends commented that he put on one of the best shows at this year’s SXSW.) 


Advanced album praise from THE PORTLAND MERCURY:

“Sumptuous orchestral brilliance… It’s a stunningly good record, not merely chirpy, zany, and whimsical-but also packed full of harmonious, heart-stopping beauty. If you can imagine ELO’s very best moments combined with Andrew Bird and a bit of weird Bjork introspection-well, even that doesn’t really do it justice. Apart from Pet Sounds, perhaps, I can’t think of a record that’s as singly captivating in its sonic beauty. “


C’mon, tell me this isn’t HEAVEN:
