USA, 2021, chamber folk
I wouldn’t say I’m “swept away” by this album, but it’s a charming folk left-turn from the art pop artist I’ve grown to love. And those hints of bluegrass? Light and springy, like a forever-young traveling companion. Regina Spektor and Dolly Parton covers herein. Like he did earlier with Electric Light Orchestra’s and Talking Heads’ songs, Kishi Bashi has a knack for making a song his own.
