My current favorite musician, Shugo Tokumaru, who I’ve been listening to non-stop for the past month, has launched this new, mind-blowing video for his song “Katachi.”
And not only has it been featured on Pitchfork, it’s also being picked up in non-music circles, such as the awesome technology blog The Verge. The blow up is happening faster than I expected, but I’m excited that others are finding this awesome musician. His new album, In Focus?, came out this past Tuesday in the US. Buy it now — it is great, even if you can’t understand a word he’s singing.
Lastly, Shugo opens for Kishi Bashi at the Croc on February 22. I have a hunch this is going to sell out, so get your tickets now.
