Boomkat Product Review:
**Sophisticated, vintage-sounding Japanese lounge and soul grooves** "Shintaro Sakamoto begins a new chapter in his storied career with the release of his debut solo album, the otherworldly folk pop masterpiece ‘How To Live With A Phantom’. For over two decades, Sakamoto was the frontman and leader of Japanese psychedelic phenomenon Yura Yura Teikoku. While the group only ever played a handful of shows outside of their homeland, they achieved cult status throughout the world and saw several albums reissued in limited pressings in the US, including the critically acclaimed ‘Hollow Me / Beautiful’ on James Murphy’s DFA label. His debut album is a single-minded exploration of the sounds of 1970s radio pop from around the globe, combining American folk rock and the evocative Japanese pop music that was influenced by it, but simultaneously referencing everything from French pop to Afro-funk, tropicalia, Krautrock and the lighter side of psychedelia."
