About four months ago, I discovered one of my now favorite musicians, Kishi Bashi. He’s a Japanese-American singer and violinist with this really cool electronic/acoustic sound.
I was preparing for Finals Week at UMD when I found his music and listening to it was great for lifting my tired-college-student spirits.
The song I listened to the most was “Chester’s Burst Over the Hamptons” off his 151a album. This particular song is really great for all-nighters. The beat is fiery; it makes you want to jump around the room, brilliant for warding off that sleepy haze.
The greatest thing about Kishi Bashi is that he adds complex musicality to every one of his songs, which is rare.
If you want to take a listen, I placed the video below.
Thanks and I hope you like it,
