The debut 1982 album for Japanese song writer Makoto Matsushitas’ solo career, “First Light” manages to highlight all his amazing musical talents. From the chill synths to the beautiful harmonizations throughout the songs, Matsushita keeps the audience’s attention with a sprinkle of bass and trumpet solos. Come for jazz funk style and stay for the lyrics. Though Japanese is his first language, Matsushita manages to pivot to English in all of his songs, allowing a larger audience to enjoy his album. First appearing on Spotify in 2018, the album only has around 800,000 listens, but is being brought into the spotlight by the growing City Pop community.
