There's nothing particularly wispy or ethereal about Shintaro Sakamoto's How to Live with a Phantom, but the former Yura Yura Teikoku frontman does do a masterful job of channeling bossa nova, soft rock, disco, and folk-rock into a '70s pop fantasia. It's a big change from his days with that long-running psych-rock outfit, but then again, Yura Yura Teikoku were so freewheeling over their double-decade career that it seemed that Sakamoto could be capable of anything once freed from what little constraints the band put on him.

Sakamoto, most commonly a guitarist, played every part on the album except the percussion, and taught himself electric bass as he wrote it. Not surprisingly, its best songs are driven by inflected grooves on that instrument. One glowing example is the effervescent "You Just Decided. Fittingly, Phantom is the first release of the Other Music Recording Company, the label of the longtime New York City indie record store/taste hub. But the ghost that follows you around here isn't some scrawny, irate clerk with bad, asymmetric hair
Ugh. Anyways, I like Shintaro Sakamoto - He's a quirky guy, and his music sounds like he discovered the 70's. Jazz flutes, saxaphones, smooth drum beats. I absolutely love Shintaro Sakamoto's solo release "How to Live With a Phantom". The entire CD has a 70's vibe and moves into different types of genres, including 70's pop, funk, and psychedelic music. Sakamoto played most of the instruments himself on this record, which is quite impressive. Hats off to the Other Music Recording company for releasing such a fantastic record.
