“Everybody Anyone”, via Itsuro Shimoda’s Love Songs And Lamentations, 1973. After a year of intent listening, framing what I imagined the haunted Japanese lyrical content to be, I did the unimaginable (no, obvious) and Googled it. And up came Youtube with a translation via the comments section. In short, the aural sense of longing/searching was spot on. For those interested, cop the lyrics here. Also (same thread) I appreciated one of the comments as describing Shimoda’s psych-folk blues as soundtracking “a modern western set in Tokyo”. Indeed.
