151A, the full-length studio debut from singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist/Jupiter One co-founder, and Of Montreal and Regina Spektor touring member K Ishibashi (Kishi Bashi), delivers a trippy, intensely melodic set of nine cosmic chamber rock songs that fall somewhere between the classically minded indie pop of Jonsi, Owen Pallett, and the grandiose, gravity-defying psych-bombs that the Flaming Lips have been dropping since the Soft Bulletin. Like Patrick Wolf and the aforementioned Pallett, Ishibashi's a violinist by trade, and his bow tricks and intricate arrangements provide stand-out cuts like the apocalyptic "Atticus, In the Desert," the effusive, Afro-pop-kissed "Bright Whites," and the swirling, epic closer "Beat the Bright Out of Me" with enough gravitas to withstand their many quirks.
Never heard of him until last night. Saw him open for Guster and was blown away. Found out later he fronted Jupiter One, a great band from a few years back. This album is amazing. Get it. You won't be disappointed.
My new favorite
Amazing album and Manchester may be my favorite song ever. The songs really grow on you.
