Shintaro Sakamoto – “In A Phantom Mood”

For a couple of decades, Shintaro Sakamoto led the Japanese psych band Yura Yura Teikoku, a band whose entire existence was little more than a rumor on this side of the world but who were reportedly massive, otherworldly stars in their homeland. But How To Live With A Phantom, his first solo album, goes a different direction, exploring the different ideas of folk-pop that emerged around the world in the ’70s. The song “In A Phantom Mood” is a breezy bossanova lilt, and it’s streaming below.
