The title of Kaoru Ishibashi's new LP "Lighght" is taken from a 1965 poem by Aram Saroyan in which the word "lighght" is the single word of text in the center of the page. It was considered controversial in its time for calling its just one, misspelled word a poem at all.

Kishi Bashi 5/27/14

Touring with Of Montreal and Regina Spektor instilled a knack for eclectic experimentation in Kishi Bashi which he put on full display in this galvanized performance in KDHX headquarters.

Kishi Bashi's personality seems to parallel his music, with joyful, lighthearted humbleness despite its complexity. His songs demonstrate an expert level of musical mastery, but he's still able to laugh and make jokes between songs, and even smile as he played. You could tell he enjoyed performing, and that made everyone enjoy watching him.

Kishi Bashi 8/5/12

Give a man a violin and a looping pedal, and he will give you a wall of sound in return -- if that man is Kishi Bashi, that is.

As a rule, I'm a comparative thinker. As a writer, I construct parallels and employ juxtaposition all the time. As a critic, I see comparison as a means towards a more accurate definition.
