Album Stream: Kishi Bashi - Lighght

Stream the second album from the violinist / experimental pop maestro.
kishi bashi lighght

Kishi Bashi's sophomore record Lighght was one of our most anticipated records of 2014, so we're psyched that it's now available for streaming via NPR two weeks in advance of its physical release date. If you've got even the barest case of the Monday blues, this is an undeniable must-listen - what with Kaoru Ishibashi's knack for smart, maximalist violin loops and his backing band's refined, driving pulse, the record contains probably the eleven catchiest, best-titled, most-likely-to-make-you-smile songs you'll hear today, if not this week. Check it out - you can grab a physical copy in a record store starting May 13th.
