"A Bumpkin’s Empty Bravado"

PSFD-8031 (CD)   

Release date: June 10th, 2009 -- OUT NOW!

Vocals, Guitar      Kazuki Tomokawa

Celebrating 35 years of vagabond soul by one of Japan’s most distinctive and original folk voices. A Bumpkin’s Empty Bravado (Japanese title: Inakamono no karagenki) is Tomokawa’s first completely solo album in fifteen years and a triumphant return to full-voiced form after his recent illness.

Stripped of his usual backing band, there’s a crystalline hardness evident in the best of Tomokawa’s songs here – a hard, blazing core in which mellifluous lyricism and eruptions of highly individual madness are fused. Lyrically there’s a new focus on Akita, the northern prefecture of his birth, as well as on the linkages between visual and musical art.

Nine tracks; thirty-five minutes. Booklet includes liner-notes and lyrics in Japanese and English.

Forthcoming releases:
Late June, 2009   Tori Kudo, piano solo
July 5th, 2009      Painting Petals On Planet Ghost / Haru no omoi (PSFD-190)
August 5th, 2009   Six Organs of Admittance / AZUL split LP
