The week before last I met Australian music artist Amiel when she was in town with the boys from Head Pictures to shoot a video (Stephen Lance is a Lux Lotus reader; more on that later, perhaps) for her new single. She was so charming and cool in person that I had to track her music down, which was a challenge since her last album came out a couple of years ago and Australian anything is hard to come by in New York.
I finally found a new copy of the Japanese edition of Audio Out on eBay, and last night when I got home I was thrilled to find it in my mailbox, coming from Tokyo by way of Hong Kong it looks like on the postage. I put it on immediately and was thrilled by how deliciously poppy it is without sounding overglossed, esp. Lovesong. Some samples are online here.
