mrspooks Beautiful mix of classical and pop, yet still completely original songs. Kishi’s voice is absolutely brilliant, and the string players did such an amazing job. Favorite track: I Am The Antichrist To You.

Carsten Pieper I have to admit, I was browsing the web (and then, naturally, Bandcamp) for the Vitamin String Quartet, who might be seen controversian, but I found myself really enjoying some of there stuff.
Nevertheless, I found this live album by artist Kishi Bashi, unbeknownst to me before, and compared it to his regular stuff, which isn't bad, but didn't click with me as these versions.
Intelligent pop songs in different degrees of classical treatment. Favorite track: Carry On Phenomenon.

Recorded live with string quartet, the new album (appropriately titled "String Quartet Live!") consists of nine songs from both “151a” and “Lighght” (and one Talking Heads cover!), performed live by K and an accompanying string ensemble. Where his first two releases featured an array of percussion and electronic elements, the new live album finds K’s familiar songs reimagined, allowing his soaring vocals to take center stage above a foundation of interweaving strings.

The string ensemble gives new life to these tracks, with updated arrangements and the infectious energy that can only come from Kishi Bashi's amazing live performances.
