SHUGO TOKUMARU

Japanese multi-instrumentalist Shugo Tokumaru’s gig at the Esplanade Recital Studio in 2010 is one that I still remember with much fondness. His whimsical, intricately layered soundscapes are magical live and his exuberance in making music is simply infectious.

FEIST

Pleasure, the fifth album by Canadian indie pop singer-songwriter Leslie Feist that was released earlier this year, has been well-received by critics. Rolling Stone magazine said: “These songs build slow as they add instrumental muscle on a skeletal form, arriving at something at once scary and lovely.” She last played here at the Laneway Festival in 2012.
