Shigeto’s most recent LP, No Better Time Than Now was released through Ghostly International in the Autumn 2013.
No Better Time Than Now took what Zach Saginaw (aka Shigeto) is best known for – liquid synth sounds, intricate production, jazz-influenced arrangements and pounding hip-hop beat and imbues them with a new subtle energy, providing the listener with an insight into the personal life of it’s creator. There are works of enigmatic sadness, for example, the smooth melancholic sounds of Miss U, but equally offerings of perpetual hope, seen through the simplicity of closing track Silver Lining and driven hi-hat pattern propelled in Ringleader. It’s not just a beautiful musical work, but an emotional journey for the listener.
