Yes, This Woman Is A Simple Man

Well, I'm not so sure a woman with a deep voice should be singing in the first person on a song called "Simple Man", but it seems to work for Jihae. The chanteuse recently put out a remix album of her debut, My Heart Is An Elephant, with the aforementioned track as the only "new" one.

Jihae's style is light electronica with touches of everyone from Nico to Grace Jones. Her throaty vocals add a layer uncommon in a lot of today's pop females. It's nice to hear something that doesn't sound like everything else these days. With Liz Phair having fallen off the talent charts lately and Juliana Hatfield's new one not coming out for a few weeks still, this is a nice little surprise.
