Shintaro Sakamoto: The Guardian's New Artist of the Week

Check out 
The Guardian
 where Shintaro Sakamoto was featured on Friday as their New Artist of the Week. Music contributor Paul Lester writes, "Think Stereolab jamming with Steely Dan, or a Japanese analogue to MOR-slick revivalists such as Gayngs and Destroyer, with a Todd-like approach to studio control freakery." Also featured in the Guardian piece is a four-song sampler with new and earlier released tracks from Sakamoto, whose forthcoming album, Let's Dance Raw, will be out on 9/16 in the States and 9/15 in the UK and EU -- pre-order the CD and LP here

Boogarins Perform Free Show This Friday at NYC's Seaport Music Festival

Winding down an epic world tour that has seen the band crisscrossing the US, UK and Europe for months, Other Music Recording Co.'s own Boogarins are returning to the States for one last string of dates supporting their excellent As Plantas Que Curam before they head back to Brazil to finish up work on their next album. We hope you will join us for the group's first headlining performance in NYC -- and it's a pretty great one -- a free show this Friday, August 15th at South Street Seaport for the Seaport Music Festival, with the great Dutch psych-pop artist Jacco Gardner opening the evening. Obviously we love their recordings, but Boogarins' live show is an incendiary psychedelic meltdown that is not to be missed (check out this great live clip of "Docce" that BrooklynVegan premiered last week), so join us in Manhattan, or find the band on the road throughout August playing across the East Coast, Midwest and South, including a bunch of headlining shows, a run of dates with the Clean, and a couple with Guided by Voices.

South Street Seaport: Pier 17 Fulton St. (at Water St.),  New York, NY
Doors at 6:00 P.M.

Shintaro Sakamoto Debuts Title Track Off Upcoming "Let's Dance Raw" Album

With his sophomore solo album, Let's Dance Raw, due for release on September 16th (September 15th in the UK and EU ), former Yura Yura Teikoku frontman Shintaro Sakamoto has unveiled the record's title track, a dusty, shuffling number whose breezy musical nature asks you, in Sakamoto's native Japanese, to "dance to the raw conga," "dance some raw steps" and "shake, raw body to raw body, forever."

The song premiered on Noisey, who described it as sounding "like a long-lost breakbeat masterpiece, one that hip-hop producers would feel totally outraged about for appearing on the Dusty Fingers comp." 

Exclaim!, who debuted "Let's Dance Raw" in Canada, named the track an "interstellar space jam," while for its UK debut, The Quietus pointed out its "dense Brazilian percussion and 70s American staccato guitar, grounded by vocal harmonies in Japanese, sees Sakamoto poised between distinct cultures." 

Stream the track below. Shintaro Sakamoto's forthcoming Let's Dance Raw is available for pre-order here

The Fader Premieres New Shintaro Sakamoto Video -- Album out September 16

The Fader has just premiered the video for "Birth of the Super Cult," the first single off Let's Dance Raw, Shintaro Sakamoto's follow-up to his 2012 solo debut, How to Live with a Phantom. As expected coming from the singer/guitarist of the now-defunct Japanese phenom Yura Yura Teikoku, it's a wonderfully bizarre, trippy clip which finds a languid Sakamoto seated with a lap steel guitar and duetting with a ventriloquist’s dummy. The Fader writes, "I could watch the clip, and his hair, forever." We concur. Let's Dance Raw will be released in North America on September 16 (September 15 in the UK and EU) and you can pre-order the CD and LP here
