Shintaro Sakamoto Let's Dance Raw Limited Vinyl LP

· Japanese singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Shintaro Sakamoto returns with a new full-length, ‘Let’s Dance Raw’ on Other Music Recording Co. (distributed by Fat
Possum). The album is the follow-up to Sakamoto’s solo debut, the otherworldly folkpop masterpiece ‘How To Live With A Phantom’ (2012).
· While ‘How To Live With A Phantom’ was the first many around the globe knew of Sakamoto, he has long been an icon in his homeland, having long fronted the psychedelic phenomenon Yura Yura Teikoku, a Tokyo-based band that emerged from Koenji’s legendary UFO Club scene and, across their 20-year trajectory, achieved mainstream success throughout the country. Following the group’s break-up in 2010, Sakamoto began working on ‘How To Live With A Phantom’, a bold stylistic departure that eschewed Yura Yura Teikokou’s psychedelic freak-outs for a much quieter and
harder-to-define sound.
· From first glimpse of the cover of ‘Let’s Dance Raw’, it’s clear that once again, we are entering uncharted territory. The record’s sleeve, painted by Sakamoto, features the
artist sitting upon a black throne, a steel guitar resting on his knee like a child being protected from the ominous mushroom cloud of smoke billowing behind him. A grinning skull has replaced Sakamoto’s face. This dichotomy of bright, innocent beauty and subtle perversity is the essence of ‘Let’s Dance Raw’, with Sakamoto moving even further from the tough underground power-trio psychedelic rock of his
former band.
