Kishi Bashi :: "Philosophize In It! Chemicalize With It!"
A spinning and home-spun arrangement, Kishi Bashi returns with "Philosophize In It! Chemicalize With It!". His trade-mark string concoctions and plucks - a feature of his time as touring violinist for Of Montreal, as well as his stunning debut last year - appear only at the opening and closing of this A-side from coming 7" single. The rest of the track is an ebullient guitar progression colored with hand-claps and a winning hook. The arrangement's swimming qualities, awash in a sea of sonics, recall the Flaming Lips, Animal Collective and some of David Byrne's most confessional moments, a moment locked between theory and chemistry.
