Kishi Bashi at the BTRhouse in Austin, TX

During the 2014 SXSW Music Festival in Austin, Texas, the BTR Live Studio team set up shop at a lovely house on the East Side and invited bands to play music and chat in the backyard. Southern Tier Brewing Company provided beverages and the fine Austin weather did the rest.

K Ishibashi (aka Kishi Bashi) has racked up quite a musical resume over the past few years. From his NYC synth rock band, Jupiter One, to collaborations with of Montreal, Regina Spektor, and Sondre Lerche, this singer/violinist/composer continues to stretch his sonic palette — originally developed as a solo project with complex live loops, Kishi Bashi has filled out his show with a full band. Here, they perform an intimate session at the BTRhouse as a trio that includes Mike Savino from Tall Tall Trees.

Featured song: “Wonder Woman Wonder Me”

Lighght, Kishi Bashi’s new album, will be available 5/13 from Joyful Noise Recordings.
