Weekly revue: 2014 week #28 (July 5 to 11)
Food: - Bia Bia special ramen at Bia Bia, Koenji
- Black forest cake from Acacier, Saitama (via Isetan)
- Black forest cake from Les années folles, Ebisu (via Isetan)
- And a fun & delicious surprise birthday party (for a friend)!
New music: - P.O.P "tanoshii koto bakari arimasu yō ni" (roughly translates to "for there be only fun things"): Now that's a truly high quality first album from these twin rappers (as in identical twins) I've seen live many times. Actually including a full band with Shibuya-kei-sounding roots, P.O.P feels a mile apart from most of the hip-hop scene, in a wonderful way. A refreshing and fun album in time for summer!
- Kyary Pamyu Pamyu "Pika Pika Fantajin": Quite a fun album with a lot of variety. It's not as easy as the previous ones, which is not necessarily a bad thing though it will need some more listens to fully get into it. I got limited edition B which comes with a world tour documentary DVD with footage from Toronto (yay!), New York, Sydney (Australia) and Hong Kong.
