KISHI BASHI
KISHI BASHI
Kishi Bashi is the pseudonym of singer, multi-instrumentalist, and songwriter K Ishibashi (born November 4, 1975). He is a founding member of the New York synth rock outfit Jupiter One, as well as a touring member of Georgia based indie rock group of Montreal and has also toured with Regina Spektor, predominantly as a violinist.
Tall Tall Trees
Tall Tall Trees
Tall Tall Trees, formed in 2008, is the musical project of multi-instrumentalist/songwriter Mike Savino. Often performing on a home-rigged electric banjo sent through an array of pedals and loopers, Savino along with longtime collaborators Mathias K├╝nzli (drums), Kyle Sanna (guitar, keyboard), and Benjamin Campbell (bass) create music that is a blend of folk and rock with the occasional foray into psychedelia.

Moment, the band's sophomore album, made possible by a highly successful Kickstarter campaign, was released February 2012 via the band's own Good Neighbor Records. The album has been called "an LP of majestic sonic qualities" by Groopease and showcases their evolution from a quirky bluegrass-leaning side project into a fully formed indie-rock band. Recorded by Matthew Cullen (My Morning Jacket, Ray LaMontagne) at Dreamland Studios (Fleet Foxes, Delta Spirit) outside of Woodstock, NY, and mixed by Bill Moriarty (Dr. Dog, Man Man), moment finds the band crafting a rich textured sound to support the more complex themes dealt with in this set of nine songs. Inspired by a group camping trip into the Alaskan wilderness, moment tells the story of a man yearning for escape and connection with nature. Listen Before You Buy called it a "beautiful and compelling album", drawing references to Wilco and Brian Eno.

Tall Tall Trees' self-titled debut was released in 2009. Jezebel Music dubbed it "a perfect storm of catchy songwriting, spot on performances, and crisp, inventive production." The record became a mainstay on college radio charts for several months despite the band's lack of promotional funding. According to College Music Journal , "it's impossible not to smile at their pop-driven folk songs" earning the band official showcases at the CMJ Music Marathon three years in a row.

Songs like "Heart Says Go" and "Bubble Gum" have found their way onto television shows like Teen Mom, American Pickers, and Two and a Half Men and have earned the band a loyal cult following for their eclectic brand on indie folk-rock.
