Kishi Bashi In Concert

When Kishi Bashi begins to play, you can't help but pay attention. Juggling violin, beatboxing and both English and Japanese vocals, the one-man orchestra blends a mess of ingredients into a symphony of loop-pedaled wonders. Close your eyes, and you might even think you're hearing his music from within a cavern — his infectious, baroque pop has that level of enveloping power.

In this exceptional performance from Washington, D.C.'s 9:30 Club — recorded live on April 3, 2012, the same night he performed as part of the band Of Montreal — Kishi Bashi builds his music from the ground up, one melody at a time, infusing life into the songs from his debut album, 151a.

Set List:
  • "Atticus, In The Desert"
  • "Bright Whites"
  • "I Am The Antichrist To You"
  • "It All Began With A Burst"
  • "Manchester"
Credits:

Producers: Mito Habe-Evans, Robin Hilton; Audio Engineer: Kevin Wait; Videographers: Becky Lettenberger, Doriane Raiman; Production Assistants: Mike Katzif, John Rose; Executive Producers: Anya Grundmann, Keith Jenkins
