Karakui.com: Two songs I’m in love with…

Rimi Natsukawa’s latest album (and perhaps her last from the JVC label), “Umuikaji” (VICL-62259), as a whole is pretty good, much like her other 11, yes eleven (we’re going according to her record label’s site), albums. But two songs, both eisaa-flavored, are simply delicious to my ears. Of course, I’m kind of partial to this type of eisaa music so let me know what you think of them.

Yeah, it’s kinda weird to quote myself but this is something I can only do on my personal dot-com site so if you’re interested check it out: “Two songs I’m in love with from Rimi’s latest album Umuikaji”.
