I don't know where I got it in my head that Curly Giraffe was a band from Kansas who lucked out with a record deal in Japan. I actually was under that impression for a few years, not realizing there were no American sounding names anywhere to be found on the album notes.

No. Come to find out Curly Giraffe is actually one person - Kiyoshi Takakawa who, although he performs with two or three others, is otherwise a one-man band, and has been that way since 2004.

Chalk it up to a faulty brain for not reading the fine print. At any rate, this track, Story of A Nightjar is off his first album to come out in 2006. Curly Giraffe have a new album out as well as a MySpace page. So if you don't want to make my mistake of an assumed band, check him out and see what he's up to.

In the meantime, while you're listening:
