Kishi Bashi: Philosophize In It! Chemicalize With It!

Hot Chip’s take on William Onyeabor, Swedish dance-pop, filmmaker Jim Jarmusch’s vampire soundtrack and more in our look at the music we tweeted this week

The imitable Kishi Bashi (aka K Ishibashi) has created yet another delightful pop song with “Philosophize In It! Chemicalize With It!” Set to appear on his upcoming album Lighght (out 13 May 2014), the song is bubbly, sweet and joyous, while the gentle string melodies on the slightly melancholy undertone. It’s a delicate balance that the artist and classically trained violinist has shown he can accomplish over and over again. The just-released colorful, psychedelic and beautifully oddball video matches the sweeping soundscape perfectly.
