While I was in LA* I got to hang out with some fine folks in some fine places. One of the most fun was killing a few hours with Frank from 230 Publicity and Seth from Polyvinyl, playing music off our iPods for one another. Seth played this song by Shugo Tokumaru that blew me away. When we got back to our respective homes, I demanded he send it to me.
MP3: Shugo Tokumaru – Parachute
If you’re looking for some quick, shiny pop music, look no further. Shugo makes it clear that he’s looking to take us on an “all day holiday,” and he does just that with this three minute track. The fingerpicked guitar practically sparkles and his voice shines in one of the peppiest songs I’ve heard in a while. Download it and love it as much as I do.
