Amazing music isn't really that hard to find these days, thanks to the wide variety of offerings available on the internet. However, truly great music is still rare, and it feels wonderful to be introduced to another artist capable of producing just that. Shugo Tokumaru's latest release Port Entropy feels like a trip through Japan in the late 80s and early 90s, with a few stops in Canada over the past decade. Some songs evoke a feeling of such joy that you can't help but smile, while others are so beautiful you may find your breath taken away. If you're a fan of The Beatles, The Magnetic Fields, Radiohead or Headlights (or you're just looking for something fresh,) definitely give Tokumaru a try.
