Kishi Bashi: It’s Christmas But It’s Not White Here In Our Town

Kishi Bashi

I just got my copy of Kishi Bashi‘s Christmas Flexi for “It’s Christmas But It’s Not White Here In Our Town” in the mail. Offered up as a limited edition (only 1000 were pressed, and it’s now sold out) 7-inch single from Joyful Noise Recordings, all proceeds benefit charity while the buyer gets a pretty sweet and exclusive Christmas track to enjoy on vinyl in the shape of a snowflake. Pretty cool if you ask me.

From Joyful Noise:

All proceeds benefit Ear Candy Music Charity, who uses the funds to supply underfunded music education programs with refurbished musical instruments.

“It’s Christmas But It’s Not White Here In Our Town” is a soft lullaby Christmas ballad, and a brief one at that chiming in at only one minute 45 seconds. We don’t mind though as the song is a good one that will be enjoyed around this time each year.

Kishi Bashi released the phenomenal LP, 151a, via Joyful Noise earlier this year. Check back next week to see where the LP comes in on my top 50 LPs of 2012!

Check out the tune below via both Soundcloud and YouTube:
