Shugo Tokumaru "Toss"

As the press for Shugo Tokumaru’s new album TOSS (Polyvinyl) so eloquently states, he has “wowed critics and fans the world over with a sound that draws as much from classic Beatles-esque melodies as his own unique spin on Japanese pop.” A multi-instrumentalist in the truest sense of the word, every sound on this album is made by Tokumaru-san. Singing his western-sounding melodies in his native Japanese, this is as joyous as chamber-pop music gets. Check out the odd buoyancy “Lita-Ruta.”
