    I love this Philosphize EP. But, I really can't wait to hear the new album! What a wonderful musician...

    K has never been a self-serious musician, and has always been at his best when he's just having a good time. :)

    Can't wait for Lighght, and think the artwork / tracklist / title is all amazing. It's the title of some poem, and I'm expecting Hahaha Pt. 1 and 2 to be very experimental.

    I love K and all, but... "Lighght" might have the worst tracklist + title I've ever seen.

    Listening to his solo work for the first time... loving it. surprised to see he doesn't have more listeners.

    @enriquep15: He's been saying at his recent shows that his next album is coming out some time next spring. In fact, he told the audience at his September 11th show in Boston that he was putting down some material just hours before the band had to go on. Not only that, the album is almost done at this point.

    I have no idea of when it's dropping, but Kishi Bashi's next release is one of the ones I look forward to the most. I also hope it's longer than 151a.

    Probably the best show yet! Don't miss him! He played four new songs.

    His solo work may be fairly new, but Kishi Bashi has quickly become one of my favorite musicians/songwriters. His music is lively and melodically rich.

    I was at a concert talked to some guy for a couple minutes and he recommended Kishi Bashi. Holy shit, best music recommendation I've ever gotten from a complete stranger.

    " ...i haven't felt this alive in a long time, all the streets are warm today" ~ ~ not that Mr Bashi will ever read this but that one lyric from his Manchester track is exactly how i feel about his magnificent talent as a song writer and performer… it has been such a long time since an artist and his work has made me feel this alive….. thank you Mr. Bashi… thank you so much
