Smart Bets: Kishi Bashi

Composer/violinist/dream-pop artist K Ishibashi (known, on stage, as Kishi Bashi) is not only talented but stylish. In case his artful haircuts, pastel bow ties and elegant recent sets at The Orange Peel and Bele Chere aren't evidence enough, Ishibashi released new song "Philosophize In It! Chemicalize With It!" through The track, from his forthcoming album Lighght, is all sweeping and leaping crescendos of layered strings, playful sound effects and sunny vocals. The record doesn't come out until May 13, but Ishibashi — who lives just down the road in Athens, Ga. — makes a visit to The Grey Eagle on Tuesday, April 1, at 8 p.m. Tall Tall Trees also performs. $12/$14.
