Charlotte Gainsbourg

Charlotte Gainsbourg - IRM

some may know Charlotte Gainsbourg from her respectable film career but her records are worth listening to also ~ i have two of her three ~ Charlotte Forever aka Lemon Incest in some parts of the world (1986) recorded when she was about 15 and containing songs by her father (Serge Gainsbourg) smacks of novelty though i have never heard it

however 5:55 (2006) and IRM (2009) are both albums i enjoy not least because of Gainsbourgs choice of collaborators

5:55 gains much from working with Air, Jarvis Cocker, Neil Hannon and Nigel Godrich (notable producer for both Radiohead and Air) and IRM was written and produced by Beck ~ below are two videos featuring songs from IRM: Heaven Can Wait and Time Of The Assassins
