Yael Naim - Yael Naim and David Donatien

2008-05-14 08:29
Okay, so it’s probably not everyone's bag, but zooty designers who live in Belgium and commute to New York every weekend are sure to have this on high rotation on their iPod playlists. While it's potpourri of 'pop' flavours that takes some time to groove with, lead single "New Soul" has hit written all over its lanky body.

An then there's her cover of none other than Britney Spears' "Toxic". It's a fitting homage to a girl who writes really, really good songs, but messes them up by actually singing them herself. If you enjoy sucking on martinis next to a pool on a hot summer day - then slip Yael Naim onto your system. But if your tastes happen to veer more towards grungy nightclubs, then you can give this one a big miss.
