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.
