Weekly revue: 2017 week #33 (August 12 to 18)

Music event: I went to dahlia's release party for latest album "MIRROR" (released in February)! I've been listening to the new album a lot, and also I still had memories of having a great time at a previous show 10 years ago (report), so I had been really looking forward to this event.

dahlia was accompanied on stage by producer Groove Unchant, guitarist Horasawa Tōru (of band The Bookmarcs which will release a first full-length album in November) and flutist Yoshida Kazuo). The set began with 4 songs from "MIRROR", followed by the nice surprise of three songs from "le mode d'emploi" (2003), and then closing with a song from previous album "Nude Lumière" (2008). While some songs were performed with a backtrack, some were played acoustically specially arranged for the show.

Nicely paced with dahlia's soothing talk between some of the songs, this made for a very pleasant show. I hope there will be more opportunities to hear her sing live again soon, and I keep looking forward to more new music from this artist who I like a lot.

Set list: kūchū fuyū / KIKKAH ~boku no utsukushii hito~ / RENEWER / ciel blanc / the measles / lilic / flower / Scent
