Kishi Bash, Fancy Colors, Levi Weaver

Nashville Scene Critic's Pick …

When he isn’t serving as frontman of indie-pop outfit Jupiter One, Kaoru “K” Ishibashi keeps himself occupied as a solo artist. His self-produced project, aptly titled Kishi Bashi, presents the multi-instrumentalist alone with only a loop machine and handful of instruments, but he quickly negates the lack of bandmates with layers of complex melodies that could fill a space far larger than his on-the-clock Brooklyn quintet. He recently released a three-part 7-iinch that features original cuts and covers of tracks from Beirut, Talking Heads and ELO. As if alluding to his direct inspirations, the three aforementioned artists almost perfectly summarize Ishibashi’s own work — his approach to looping is reminiscent of Talking Heads, his flighty demeanor is in sync with the playfulness of ELO, and his smoothly soaring vocals garnish the songs in a way that can only be described as Zach Condon-esque.
