Exhibition: We went to see Picaro Taro's solo exhibition "TARO DOG with Cats@Parkside" at Gallery Mu (Facebook) in Shibuya. Picaro Taro paints dogs (and sometimes cats) in his fun, colorful and pop ways. Gallery Mu is a small counter bar located just across from NHK. The exhibition goes on until December 28. Tarō-san DJs whenever he's there, and you can bring your own records to spin too, as I did. :)

New music: - After having half-forgotten about its release, I finally got blue marble's "full color" album. The whole album is great, but I was especially impressed by almost-16-minute gem "INTROIT", a complex and beautiful pop-oriented song that goes through bars of 7/4, 4/4, 11/8, 3/4, and some I can't even count. It's the song I listened to the most all week! I wish I can hear this live someday.

- Oh and I got frenesi's "Dolphino" too (although I already had "Landmark Theater"). This is great too of course! It includes several new and rare tracks! (By the way, blue marble is on frenesi's label.)

- Check out this free holidays compilation from Eenie Meenie Records, with songs by Old Monk and more, and also one track by Twisty which seems to be a new side project of Tsugumi (Old Monk, ex-PINE*am)!
