Katie Recommends: Mika

I don’t have a car, so I don’t really listen to the radio anymore. If I find out about new music nowadays, it’s usually via Internet. And the Internet is where I found Mika.

Mika is this British guy whose voice is kind of weird. It gets kind of high-pitched and almost squeaky in places, but somehow it works for the songs on his album Life in Cartoon Motion. He has fun, upbeat songs like “Grace Kelly” and “Lollipop”; more low-key, mellow songs like “Love Today” and “Relax Take It Easy,” and quieter, more serious songs like “My Interpretation” and “Any Other World.” But they’re all catchy and oddly addictive.
