Shintaro Sakamoto :: How To Live With A Phantom


The album that keeps on giving – Shintaro Sakamoto’s 2011 debut, How To Live With A Phantom. Following his two decade involvement with Japanese psych-rockers Yura Yura Teikoku, Sakamoto eased into second gear with Phantom, assembling a heady quilt with nods to euro-lounge, exotica, funk and 70s crystalline pop.

I just included the lp in a guest selector role for Vinyl Me Please, along with the (until now) out-of-print Next Stop Soweto: Vol 4, Miles’ In A Silent Way and Lee Fields’ Time And Place.

  1. Thanks again, yet another gem I was unaware of. My missus is Japanese, this put a smile on her face 🙂

  2. The follow Up- LET’S DANCE RAW- from 2014 is just as good. Let’s hope 2017 sees a new Sakomoto album release!
