It’s actually Autumn in Australia, and the weather here in France is quite autumnal too. I have coincidentally been into a variety of things from Australia.
I already mentioned them, but I’m still on a Lucksmiths kick, digging deeper into their consistent discography, at the crossroads of Belle & Sebastian, The Go-Betweens and The Smiths. If you’ve never listened to them, Camera Shy is a fairly representative song.
There is also a new album by Allo Darlin’, whose singer Elizabeth Morris is australian. First single Capricornia is about her Queensland hometown and sounds fantastic – watch the video here.
I’ve also just watched Animal Kingdom which is a crime story set in Melbourne. A bit disturbing, but quite good.
On a lighter note, I’ve discovered through samples the australian brand of cosmetics Aesop. Expensive stuff, but lovely natural scents and beautiful visuals. I offered a friend the Jet Set kit for her birthday and she was delighted.
