Sakamoto, Shintaro - How To Live With A Phantom How To Live With A Phantom
Funk New - LP OM-002-1 Other Music
Sealed 2012 Reissue. "There's Nothing Particularly Wispy Or Ethereal About Shintaro Sakamoto's How to Live With A Phantom, But The Former Yura Yura Teikoku Frontman Does Do A Masterful Job Of Channeling Bossa Nova, Soft Rock, Disco, And Folk-Rock Into A '70s Pop Fantasia. It's A Big Change From His Days With That Long-Running Psych-Rock Outfit, But Then Again, Yura Yura Teikoku Were So Freewheeling Over Their Double-Decade Career That It Seemed That Sakamoto Could Be Capable Of Anything Once Freed From What Little Constraints The Band Put On Him. How to Live with a Phantom Is A Resolutely Solo Album: Sakamoto Recorded It Largely By Himself And Even Learned How To Play Bass So That He Could Write And Record Those Parts On His Own (And His Basslines Are A Driving Force Here). This Independent Streak Gives How to Live With A Phantom A Simplicity And Purity That Transcends Its Influences; Yes, The Album Sounds Like It's Full Of Shimmering Pastel Colors And Could Very Well Be The Perfect Soundtrack For Sitting In A Hot Tub Or Gazing At A Sunset, But It's Also Surprisingly Restrained And Mercifully Irony-Free, Considering Sakamoto's Sonic Palette." - Heather Phares, AMG.... more details
