Kishi Bashi: 151a [10th Anniversary Edition] (Tangerine Cloud Wax | 1518 Copies)

There are always records that everyone remembers fondly in their listening history. Kishi Bashi’s 151a is one of those records for TFN. It was an instant Headphone Approved album and on April 11, 2012 we summed it up by calling 151a “A gorgeous piece of indie pop!” The album then firmly landed at #5 on our Blazing Top 50 Albums of 2012.

The album gave a huge spotlight to the talent of Kishi Bashi which has continued to grow and Indianapolis label Joyful Noise Recordings. It is hard to believe that it has been 10 years but JNR is celebrating with a 2LP 10th Anniversary Edition of 151a that will be out on March 11, 2022.

The Tangerine Cloud variant is limited 1518 copies (The 1st press standard color is clear). The 1st LP is the album proper and then LP number 2 offers excellent demos of each song and era rarities. If you are a Kishi Bashi fan you will not want to miss the extras.

The album also will be packaged in a gatefold jacket within a (reversible art) slipcase featuring new takes on the cover art by illustrators Hsiao-Ron Cheng and John Lee. The 10th Anniversary edition will also contain expanded liner notes by Kishi Bashi.
