Kishi Bashi has been wowing audiences with his violin-based, one-man live show where he uses looping to re-create complex avant-pop songs from his bright and soaring debut LP, 151a (out now via Joyful Noise). When he was last in San Francisco he taped a few songs live at Golden Gate Park with film/music project Echolocale, who just released the video today.
The first 500 copies of the vinyl are hand-numbered, pressed on clear/white (side by side) split color vinyl. Records can only be purchased from the Joyful Noise online store, and from the band on tour.
Stream 151a via Soundcloud .
