Kahimi Karie – Tilt – Review

Kahimi Karie

Tilt (Polydor)
by Michael McCarthy

Tilt is Kahimi Karie‘s new 13-song album, released in Japan, and it’s precisely what we’ve come to expect from her. Nearly-whispered vocals over soft, dreamy, often electronic beats. Languages on this release are English, French and Japanese, and you’re sure to find yourself under her spell even when you don’t understand it. After Björk, I’m convinced that Ms. Karie makes the most intriguing, original pop in the world. A few listens to the subtleties of “I Can’t Wait For Summer” and “Do You Know The Time?” and you might be, too.
