Music events: - On Record Store Day, I went to Tower Records Shinjuku to see Vanilla Beans, part of an event for the release of split-singles with The Pen Friend Club. I didn't know The Pen Friend Club before, but turns out they're a cool band that takes inspiration from the sound of the Beach Boys and Phil Spector. Also performing was Niigata idol group RYUTist which has some very nice vocals. Vanilla Beans sang "Nicola", "sweet life" (released on 7" this time) and "Tokyo wa yoru no 7ji" (Pizzicato Five cover)! The dance poses in "Nicola" on the 2nd and 3rd photos always remain favorites. :)

- And on Friday I went to see Maika Loubté, who performed a live set in the entrance of Isetan Men's in Shinjuku! What a cool place to blast electronic sounds! This was presented in collaboration with Agnès b. Maika had brought a bunch of synths and played everything live as she does it, including the two songs from her recent single "Skydiver". I posted a very short clip on Instagram.

Set list (the 2nd of 2 sets): Feel / Coconut Juice / Universal Metro / Le Gong / Skydiver / Mountaintop
