VINYL FORMAT. Kishi Bashi is the solo project of K Ishibashi: violinist, singer, and composer. The sophomore album Lighght (pronounced "Light") continues and expands the sound of his critically acclaimed debut, 151a - which earned Kishi Bashi the title of "Best new artist" by NPR. Since the release of 151a two years ago, Kishi Bashi has toured relentlessly, captivating audiences across the globe with his loop-based live show, and fostering a groundswell of devotees. Following stints with Regina Spector, Sondre Lerche, and of Montreal (where he was a full-time band member & co-producer), in late 2012 K decided to focus solely on his own music, and began embracing the more developed compositions and arrangements heard throughout the new album.
