Kishi Bashi - “It All Began With A Burst”
I’ll admit, I was skeptical about this song and this artist as a whole when I heard it in my 3 AM stupor last night. Do I like K Ishibashi’s (noted violinist for little bands like Of Montreal and Regina Spektor, I dunno, maybe you’ve heard of them) voice and vocal style? Is this music too “busy”? But as I made my way through 151a, I found myself completely won over, and pretty quickly, I might add. It reminded me a lot of Sufjan’s The Age of Adz, if not a bit cleaner at some points. Highly recommended for anyone that’s ever wondered what it would feel like for a Technicolor marching band to parade through their ears.

…if you want to be the biggest DJ in the world, you sure as hell better have some sort of visual gimmick to back up your ability to drop the beat.
