For someone who was quite cynical about the current state of popular music (given how overindulged one was in the 1990s) before he started blogging, I now stand converted (have been for a while actually) and love being taken aback by todays music’ ability to consistently delight and surprise me.
Today’s gushing has been induced by a couple of electro orchestral pop gems by multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter Kishi Bashi (who also happens to be a member of psych pop group Of Montreal). Both Bright Whites and It All Began With A Burst are eclectic, giddy and uplifting in the way that only the best pop music can be, the kind that makes you want to dance spontaneously :). Listen to the two songs below and click the links to download them for free.
Both these songs feature on Kishi Bashi’ debut album 151a, which is releasing on the 10th of April. If you liked what you heard then i suggest you buy this album when it comes out.
