Shugo Tokumaru

Shugo Tokumaru is a Japanese singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, whose style and influences incorporate elements of Beach Boys, Sufjan Stevens, and even some more experimental bands from the past such as Can. On another level, he incorporates all of his talents in a tactile way that you can almost touch. Watch his videos, you can see he's full of references to the sun, the moon, day cycles, and the way it affects life on earth. The effortless way he fuses so many elements together, with effective and clever videos, makes it a challenge to compare with the formulaic music that fills our cars, homes, and bars. Maybe you should listen to him outdoors.
