Prince once sang of hearing songs in his dreams, so does that mean Shinji Shibayama is like the unpronounceable one? Nagisa ni te, his collaboration with Masako Takeda, has enjoyed a number of comparisons, some more likely than others to be be invoked while listening to the duo's latest, Dream Sounds. Dig a little deeper, and you'll find a tender beauty that is neither Belle nor Sebastian, Neil nor Young, here nor there.
