Announcing... Kishi Bashi 7" Box Set!
has just announced the release of three elaborate 7" singles
via Joyful Noise! Each of the three releases features a single from Kishi Bashi's acclaimed debut album 151a
, as well as an unreleased orchestral cover song on Side B. The Side A singles "Manchester", "Bright Whites", and "It All Began With A Burst" are paired with re-imagined orchestral quartet covers of ELO
, Talking Heads
, and Beirut
The vinyl itself features a unique 2-color splatter design, with a different color combination for each 7" record (Purple & Orange Vinyl, Clear & White Vinyl, Blue & Bone White Vinyl, respectively). Additionally, the cover art for each 7" correspond to each other - forming a complete triptych landscape image when all three are placed side by side.
The first 500 copies are sold as a three-part box set, including all three 7"s in a custom-built wooden frame. Each Box Set is individually hand-numbered out of just 500 copies, and is personally signed by Kishi Bashi.
Pre-Order for the Box Set is now available for $45. Purchase includes an instant MP3 Download of all songs, including the orchestral cover songs which are ONLY available with purchase of the vinyl. Individual 7"s are also available for $7 each.
