Shugo Tokumaru debuted with
the mini-album Night Piece (2004), that revealed him as a sort of bedroom
Mozart, gifted with the talent to both borrow
pristine old-fashioned melodies from around the world and to play dozens of
instruments like a one-man orchestra.
The serene, pastoral and witty mood of the debut yielded to colder and more
introspective, meticulously assembled and densely layered, clockwork mechanisms on L.S.T. (2005).
He played more than 50 instruments (and arranged them on his laptop) for
Exit (2007), a veritable catalog of Sixties kitsch.
Each of these albums contained exactly ten songs.
The cheerful Port Entropy (2011) sounded a bit too
monotonous and artificial, like a manic depressed person on stimulants
