Whether it be their propensity toward the outrageously avant-garde or the general outlandishness of frontman Kevin Barnes, of Montreal certainly seize every spare column inch and bloom equally in the fertile spatial expanses of the blogosphere. However now ready to clamour for his share of Hype (Machine) is Kishi Bashi. A member of Barnes’ travelling cirque and string ringleader, Bashi’s also had a hand in producing the troupe’s latest and – keep ahold of hats – eleventh studio effort Paralytic Stalks although his solo debut, 151a, is expected April. Bright Whites is lifted from said LP, and hinges on a predestined psychedelia via tribal chanting and an overwhelming sense of quasi-religious, highly mellifluous and hugely gladdening harmony.
