On Kishi Bashi's second album, technique and experimentation collide in high-spirited, even disorienting ways.
Known for his live looping, Kishi Bashi got together with a string quartet to cover one of his favorite Beirut songs.
The mistletoe’d duo behind All Songs Considered rented a cabin to host a holiday party for the ages. Join Kishi Bashi, Dan Deacon, Carrie Brownstein, Nellie McKay and… vegan haggis (?) for some reindeer games!

Juggling violin, beatboxing and both English and Japanese vocals, Kishi Bashi is a one-man orchestra who blends a mess of ingredients into a symphony of loop-pedaled wonders. Watch him build his music one melody at a time at the 9:30 Club, live in concert in Washington D.C.
