Kishi Bashi – “A Sunday Smile” (Beirut Cover) (Stereogum Premiere)

Kishi Bashi was left off our list of 2012′s Best New Artists, an omission that sparked some controversy in the comments. As I mentioned in that space, the dude got my vote, based almost entirely on his live show, which I caught at Joe’s Pub last July. It was an otherworldly, elevating performance: just violinist/vocalist K Ishibashi, his accompanist Mike Savino (of Tall Tall Trees) on banjo, and some loop/delay pedals, all of which blended to transport the entire room to the rings of Saturn or something. Since then, he’s kinda blown up. He’s just embarked on a long U.S. tour — this time with Savino and Elizabeth Ziman (of Elizabeth And The Catapult) on keyboard — which precedes the release of a 7″ series: three singles, each featuring a song from Kishi’s Bashi’s 2012 debut, 151a, on the A-side, and a cover on the flip. The first features “Manchester” b/w “A Sunday Smile” by Beirut; the second is “Bright Whites” b/w “This Must Be The Place (Naive Melody)” by Talking Heads; and the third is “It All Began With A Burst” b/w “Prologue / Twilight” by ELO. We’ve got the Beirut cover now, and it’s terrific. Check it out, along with tour dates (and I sincerely recommend seeing him, if you can, especially while he’s still playing relatively small spaces) and box set details below.
