It's a great day to be a Kishi Bashi fan! For its 10-year anniversary, KB's stunning debut, 151a, is receiving the reissue treatment it deserves.
Here's what the new, reimagined 151a includes...
The album proper plus demos of each song and era rarities
Packaged in a gatefold jacket within a (reversible art) slipcase featuring new takes on the cover art by illustrators Hsiao-Ron Cheng and John Lee.
Expanded liner notes by Kishi Bashi
Along with launching Kishi Bashi’s career as a soloist, this earnest debut made him one of indie music’s most in-demand violinists. With the bonus disc of "Demo-arigato" versions of your favorite tracks, you can hear Kishi Bashi's singular voice take shape. You'll never hear 151a the same way again, and we mean that in the best way.

The 26-minute Emigrant EP is a lush bluegrass-inspired album referencing the brutal history and harsh climate of the American West. Arranged and recorded over the last year (in Emigrant, Montana), this EP serves as a time capsule of the 2020 condition as it meditates on the anxieties of the COVID-19 pandemic, the comforts of nature, the pains of resource-fueled conflicts, and the resiliency that emerges from struggle.
Available now for Pre-Order, the Emigrant EP is released on Digital, Mountain Spring Clear 12" Vinyl, and Limited Edition VIP Vinyl. The VIP Edition is pressed on the unique vinyl color pictured below – which we're calling "Mountain Peak" vinyl – and is limited to 500 hand-numbered copies, including an exclusive bonus flexi-disc with full artwork.
