Hello, Oscar from New Jersey and Spain, visiting his buds in Tokyo, and who got slightly off the beaten path and made his way to Coconuts in Tokyo’s juuuuust-far-enough-away-neighborhood-to-be-isolated-from-Tokyo’s-bustle-but-juuuuust-barely-close-enough-not-to-be-too-inconvenient-to-call-home, bohemian and family-friendly (yeah, we have Inokashira Park …our own zoo) chilled-out oldschool hipster enclave that, those-who-know, know, forever lovely Kichijoji. 

Oscar was stoked to have scored Casiopea’s Eye’s of the Mind, which, I know you’re not supposed to do, that is, judge a record by its cover, but if I do just that, judge away, this record has GOT to be interesting. Looks like a GEM and in great nick!  
Well done, pals, Denny and Steven, who got Oscar over to KJ, to the legendary Coconuts to score this find! Hope it sounds as good as it looks! Can’t wait to give it a listen, myself!

Bonus TRS tip: All the records photographed here are archived in a Tokyo Record Style list on the music database Discogs, which is linked in the bio. I also add the listings in the comments but because they are unclickable, you have to get creative to grab the URL. Anyway, just know all of TRS is archived online, and if you ever see a record that you’re keen to revisit, this list is linked in there 🙂
