Kishi Bashi: Sonderlust


Still one of our favorite records from 2016, Kishi Bashi’s Sonderlust is beautifully uplifting despite its pathos. Deeply personal and yet universally relatable, the record features all the sparkle we’ve grown to expect and adore from the singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist—a tremendous blend of melancholy and joyful luminescence. And, with production help from Grizzly Bear’s Chris Taylor, this is one of Kishi Bashi’s best albums thus far.
