Help me America!

Captain America vs Shugo Tokumaru

New York’s famous alternative music store Other Music has just launched a digital download store; like Rough Trade’s one, it sells DRM free MP3s. Even better, Other Music is selling Night Piece, the first album by Japanese musician Shugo Tokumaru. You can hear snippets of it on the site, and it’s great; atmospheric, mysterious, lo-fi, acousticy, a bit like Sufjan Stevens but without so much syrup. Even Pitchfork loves it, so it’s properly cool.

Problem is, Other Music will only sell it to you if you’re in the US. I really want to get hold of Night Piece, so if any kind American readers out there would like to help, please get in touch…
