Tamao Koike - Automne Dans Un Miroir

[Edit: the song has been completely removed from Youtube! However, you can download a zip file of multiple Koike songs here]

A combination of obscurity and Japanese language barriers make Tamao Koike (or 小池玉緒) an elusive character online. This song, a slice of Francophile synth-pop, was supposedly written by Yellow Magic Orchestra, associates of Koike. With shades of Jane Birkin or a young Charlotte Gainsbourg, this track is utterly gorgeous and unique in its approach.

Label: Yen Records
Year: 1983
Genre: Synth Pop, Dream Pop, Yé-yé
