Seems the folks over at Joyful Noise have produced another beautiful box set and, as is their tradition, it’s a limited edition (naturally). What’s special about this one? It’s Kishi Bashi!
JN‘s exciting description:
Announcing… three elaborate 7″ singles from Kishi Bashi! 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 (Clear & White, Purple & Orange, and Blue & Bone). 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 500 copies, and is personally signed by Kishi Bashi.
Though the official release date isn’t until April 2nd, Pre-Order is available now.
There you have it, fine PaisleyReaders. I’m sure you all have your tickets for the west coast tour. K. Ishibashi starts tonight in ridiculous New York City..
And now you know.
