Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

TOKYO ROSENTHAL

GHOSTS

2010-02-22

When I first picked up this release from a man named Tokyo Rosenthal, the last thing I expected to hear was a terrific release from an Americana singer/songwriter. Tokyo otherwise known as Toke starts this release with the most rock oriented track “Inside Your Skull” a track that is so catchy it may never leave. “There Is No Love” is a folk track that features the fiery fiddle of Bobby Britt who is also featured on “Mister Tell Me About The Great Depression” and “Goin’ On Saturday” two tracks that have a certain Willey’s feel to them. “Feelings Don’t Know Any Age” begins slow and builds to an up-tempo jazz sound that reminded me of Dave Brubecks classic Take Five and featured some great flute from Lisa Lecheau. This Ghost from North Carolina may get inside your skull and not leave, but don’t worry, it’s a good thing. Reviewed By: Gregg Saur
