Tune of the Day: You Can Be a Robot, Too by Shintaro Sakamoto
Following a very successful career spanning from 1989 to 2010, the former frontman of the group Yura Yura Teikoku decided to go solo in 2012. After recording his first album, ‘How to Live With a Phantom’, on which he played virtually all the instruments, Shintaro Sakamoto returned in 2014 with ‘Let’s Dance Raw’. On this second album, he serves up radio-friendly pop, tropical sounds and Latin rhythms… It’s summery, sugary lounge pop.
Today, we’re listening to You Can Be a Robot, Too from this most recent album. Because, even four years later, it still sounds just as fresh.
