Japan, 2004, folk pop / singer-songwriter / contemporary folk
Shugo Tokumaru – Night Piece: On this, his debut album, Tokumaru Shugo is doing what he does best: play around innocently. I hear xylophones and something making cricket noises. There are some moments of him trying to make a harder edge, but he just can’t escape the wonderful world of folk pop he lives in. The lead track pulls you into his world at once.
