Shintaro Sakamoto
Love If Possible

Solo album the third from Shintaro Sakamoto, out of Yura Yura Teikoku. Love If Possible is a varied set of highly individual pop-soul, full of steel guitar, spacey quasi-ambience, shuffling rhythms and Sakamoto’s highly individual frontman vocals. Released by Mesh-Key along with an insert that features all the lyrics translated from Japanese to English.

Shintaro Sakamoto / VIDEOTAPEMUSIC
A Night in Bangkok EP

Two Tokyo producers team up to share their love of the film Bangkok Nites via the medium of lovely music. Shintaro Sakamoto and VIDEOTAPEMUSIC extensively sampled various Thai records to form the basic materials of their A Night In Bangkok EP, and the results come out beautifully. 12” on EM Records.

Shintaro Sakamoto
Let's Dance Raw

Shintaro Sakamoto has sacked off his psych-rock pals in Yura Yura Teikoku to offer up something a little different on 'Let's Dance Raw', which offers up his psych guitar styling for a silky smooth funk project. Sakamoto's last solo record was the folksy 'How To Live With a Phantom', but the infectious grooves here are more dressed up, based around his slick chord sequences, well-placed keys and bumpy bass.

Shintaro Sakamoto
How To Live With A Phantom

Psychedelic wheel-steerer Shintaro Sakamoto is known for heading up the Japanese band Yura Yura Teikoku, but has branched out on his solo records to craft a simpler, more direct sound based on the firm foundations of '70s pop tunes and that lovely thing we call easy listening. How To Live With a Phantom is chilling but ultimately serene.
