It’s easy to get hooked on Kishi Bashi. Between the catchy melodies, his perfect blend of psychadelic pop and ambient rock, and his roots with Of Montreal, his debut album 151a can’t go wrong. He also happens to be an outstanding violinist.151a currently has a 5-star rating on iTunes and this track, “Bright Whites,” has been featured on NPR’s All Songs Considered. Check out the rest of the album here.
Among the new releases from this week is Sees the Light from La Sera, which is the solo project of Vivian Girls’ Katy Goodman. Her voice is a hybrid of Zooey Deschanel and Dee Dee from Dum Dum Girls and she is one of the latest examples of the ever-growing genre of dream/noise pop. While “Never Come Around” from her 2011 self-titled debut is an awesome track, I think this sophomore album has stronger melodies and is the perfect soundtrack for spring.
