ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
It\'s a coincidence of course, but Goh Nakamura\'s tunes orbit the same sphere as a triumvirate of \"E\" songwriters: Elliot Smith, Elvis Costello, and Evan Dando. And while we bandy about the alliterations let\'s include: Ken Stringfellow, Matthew Sweet, and Ron Sexsmith. Also: \"smart,\" \"soaring\" (as in melodies), and \"significant\" (as in talent). His videos have been viewed over a million times on YouTube, which, in our hypervirile economy, wouldn\'t impress necessarily after all, this is the same site that brought instant fame to a Britney Spears apologist who gives histrionic dispatches from beneath his blankie. The difference is Nakamura is not a fleeting flavor: Ulysses (self-released) has wings.

Ulysses
Musically, this is Rubber Soul retooled for the twenty-first century. Lyrically it is a bit more than that. There are complicated love songs, but they are not of the shallow "I luv ya, darlin" type. They evince genuine feeling in a matrix of sophisticated musical virtuosity. This should be heard more widely. The only thing I missed in this album is a bit of an asian flavor which was evident on the previous album.
