Listen to Kishi Bashi’s “It’s Christmas, But It’s Not White In Our Town” via NPR Music (playing The First Unitarian Church on 2/6)
Indie rock violinist and songwriter Kishi Bashi is getting in the holiday spirit with a new Christmas single, and a string of winter concert appearances. A touring member of Regina Spektor’s band, as well as Of Montreal, Kishi Bashi premiered “It’s Christmas, But It’s Not White In Our Town” this afternoon via NPR Music. The song is woozy, melancholic, and vaguely reminiscent of Mercury Rev’s Deserter’s Songs, but undeniably seasonable at the same time. Get serenaded here, and get ready for Kishi Bashi’s appearance at the First Unitarian Church on February 6. Tickets go on sale this Friday at Noon, more information at the WXPN Concert Calendar (powered by The Swollen Fox).
