Former of Montreal member and expert violinist Kishi Bashi will soon release a brand new 7″ to celebrate an upcoming month-long U.S. tour. His first piece of new material since last year’s 151a LP is previewed with the exuberantly titled A-side track, “Philosophize In It! Chemicalize With It!” The exclamations spill over into the song itself, creating a three-and-a-half minute sweet treat of playful, fun-loving pep that sounds like a cross between The Shins (still can’t get over those so James Mercer-like vocals) and Vampire Weekend. It’s pouring like the apocalypse where I am right now, but I’m all smiles thanks to this.

Kishi Bashi’s “Philosophize In It! Chemicalize With It!” 7″ will be available via Joyful Noise and on the aforementioned tour, which kicks off next month. Check out those dates below.
