Song of the Week: Shugo Tokumaru – Katachi
Japan’s Shugo Tokumaru arrived in the US back in 2004 with his self-made, many-instrumentalist abilities. Since his debut, the Polyvinyl artist has continued to refine and add on to his appeasing sound. After hearing “Katachi” on Soundcloud, and despite not understanding a word, it meant something more than just words can say.
Shugo Tokumaru’s all in when it comes to his music. Since his recorded sound always carries 20+ instruments, which he plays, him touring meant brining on four outside musicians to help capture some of what he envisioned. In November, Tokumaru released In Focus? in Japan and will be available in the States this year. For more on the awe-inspiring artist, check out his Facebook and stream In Focus? on Bandcamp.
