I was hooked in the opening moments of this video just like I was hooked the moment I heard Lukestar’s high-pitched, Mew-like vocals. Even the backing music has the punchy, almost orchestrated sound of Mew’s And The Glass Handed Kites. Lukestar (MySpace) hails from Oslo and their recent release, Lake Toba, which hit late September, doesn’t appear to have hit in the states.
But don’t fret. It was released throughout Europe on several labels and in several countries. You have more than enough choices to choose from (all are noted on their website). And of course, you don’t have to run out to Europe to snag up this jewel, you can simply pick up a copy at Amazon. I’ll even link to it for ya… you’ve got a choice of physical and digital.
