It's quite normal for NZ/Aus albums to take a while to get released throughout the rest of the world, if they are officially released there at all.
Ah ok, didn't realize :)

I thought you already did, for some reason.

Damn.  That Gotye song she sings on is skyrocketing.  Currently #8 on iTunes on the US and #1 in the UK.  Getting her some major exposure.  She's already got over 100,000 fans on her FB page.  Crazy.

Glad I got tickets for their NYC show when I did.

I thought it had been out for a while. Did it just get released as a single or something?

It was first released in the summer, but it was just released in the US like a week ago, so I guess that's why it's been getting more attention lately?

Yeah, the album is all over the record stores now. This is a good thing for both Gotye and Kimbra!

To clairfy, I was talking about the Gotye album.  Kimbra's album still isn't out in the US yet.  Tbh, the gotye album isn't all that great imo.  A couple of good songs, but nothing mind-blowing.

Making Mirrors? I think it's just as good if not better than Vows.

Meh.  It's got a few good songs but I get kinda bored with it quickly.

I really like this bia. She's really, really weird and her movements totally turn me off, but not in a bad way. I mean, she's a beaut, and her voice is so magnificent and varied...but SO WEIRD. Good weird. I can't figure her out. I like it. A lot. But then again...it's so odd that even if she were standing there stark naked, I don't think I'd have any change in bloodflow. Not that that's relevant. I has a peener. HRRRM. Her music is really hooking me now though. At first I found it, much like her robotic, spastic, neurotic movements, just kind of weird and uncomfortable (Settle Down). But now I can't stop listening. Cameo Lover has me hooked, as does Two Way Street; I'm still getting used to Settle Down but it's catching, as is Plain Gold Ring. That's all I've heard so far (aside from Somebody from Gotye, whom I have a man crush on and really like a lot of his music, especially the album Like Drawing Blood). All around I think I'm in love with her.

Odd... I like the way she moves.  It's like her body is just an extension of the music.  Have you seen any of the live at Sing Sing videos?  She's super sexy in those.  She looks kinda weird in the official videos...

Idunno... I mean, I listened to it a few months ago... didn't do much for me at the time.  Tried again recently... liked it a little more, but still only found a few songs to be interesting.  Maybe it just needs to grow on me some more.

I've been checking out Making Mirrors the last week (also bought it), and I have to agree with the people saying that it's as good (or if not better) then Vows.
Kimbra is still amazing, and Vows is a fantastic album, but Gotye is pretty sweet as well. Love it how much variety Making Mirrors has, favorite tracks would be Someone That You Used to Know, In Your Light, Smoke and Mirrors & State of the Art.

I've only listened to Making Mirrors a few times but it was kind of a disappointment for me.

I much prefer Vows.

I feel like Kimbra could break out pretty big here. I'm really interested to see what happens with her.

Overall, I would say that Gotye > Kimbra but that's unfair since he has more albums.

I can't really get into Making Mirrors, but I'm starting to dig Vows quite a bit.
