Shintaro Sakamoto – In a Phantom Mood

Sometimes the universe gives great gifts. The folks at Other Music Recording Co. have channeled this generous instinctual nature and provided us with the swoon inducing stunner of an album How to Live with a Phantom by Shintaro Sakamoto. Those in the know about the Japanese psychedlic noise banshees Yura Yura Teikoku will recognize Sakamoto as the leader of this epic outfit and grasp his hand as the fearless sonic guide that he is. This time around the he wears the suit of a sun soaked phantom swirling on the dance floor of a sinking ship. Don’t worry, the moment may sound doom filled but Sakamoto’s spirit sounds are so laced with cool that this will be the most leisurely demise ever devised.
