First track off Kishi Bashi's new album, Sonderlust, an album that's apparently a direct result of the personal crisis ensuing from the end of a 13-year marriage.  "Touring and its accompanying lifestyle took a heavy toll on my soul and my family," he explained, and as an outlet, he submerged himself in a new musical direction.
Sonder n. The realization that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own—populated with their own ambitions, friends, routines, worries and inherited craziness—an epic story that continues invisibly around you like an anthill sprawling deep underground, with elaborate passageways to thousands of other lives that you’ll never know existed, in which you might appear only once, as an extra sipping coffee in the background, as a blur of traffic passing on the highway, as a lighted window at dusk.
