Exhibition: - Went to see a solo exhibition by ESSU at Black Dallas, a clothing shop in Kamata. Many paintings by the artist are on display, this time more focusing on the calligraphy side, but still several feature the characteristic faces ESSU is most recognized for. T-shirts and keychains are also available. This exhibition goes on until April 6!


New music: - Cibo Matto "Hotel Valentine"! Finally got my hands on the Japanese edition (sorry for having been lazy). This album is really great, all built around a concept of a ghost in a hotel. The Japanese edition comes with 2 bonus tracks, a funny spoken track, and the other is a dance track set in an izakaya with Sakamoto Ryuichi, Oyamada Keigo and others

Also I'm delighted that Cibo Matto are in town, and they have events coming next week (April 1st at Brooklyn Parlor in Shinjuku, and April 3rd at Tower Records Shinjuku)! I'm really looking forward to see them again! Last time I saw Cibo Matto was in Montreal for the "Stereotype A" tour, though I've seen Yuka and Miho separately in Tokyo a few times since.

- I also got Hanae "jikkai Quiz" which I had been curious about since seeing her live at "Harajuku Kawaii Matsuri" last year. Produced by the same ex-sōtaiseiriron members as Tarte Tatin's "Tetrad", this album has a quite similar sound which I'm happy to get some more of!
