DAMI IM

Herald Sun - Hit - - MUSIC -

Let’s leave be­hind the fact that Dami Im slayed at Euro­vi­sion and is now seem­ingly doomed to cre­ative death by con­sec­u­tive cov­ers al­bums. While the Car­pen­ters one made her sound old be­fore her time, this one works well. Jazzy gems from ev­ery­one from Bey­once (Love On Top) to Nina Si­mone (Feel­ing Good) to No­rah Jones (Come Away With Me) to Bon­nie Raitt (I Can’t Make You Love Me). Two orig­i­nals sug­gest Dami is more down with be­bop than dance pop now. /CA
