The Golden Rock Song of the Day - 7/5/2007

Today's song comes from Japanese artist Kahimi Karie, who does her best to imitate a genre mostly exclusive to French music known as "whisper singing." The songs are usually a strange hybrid of bossa nova, jazz, and electronica, and for some reason, I really dig it. From her first album Larme de Crocodile (which I got at Tokyo Recohan), it's "Tiny King Kong."

oh you're a customer of tokyo recohan too! i've been buying there for quite a few years - it (or patrick, rather) is responsible for populating my shibuya-kei related cd collection...

i liked the k.k.k.k.k. album (one thousand 20th century chairs!) and montage in particular, even though i'm not a big fan of her voice.
