Down and Out in Denver

Charlotte Gainsbourg

Posted in music by Alastair on December 16, 2009

I heart Charlotte Gainsbourg and even though she is better known as an award-winning actress, her career as a musician has also been significant. For her third venture into record making, titled IRM (French for MRI), Gainsbourg enlisted the aid of American musician, singer-songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Beck who wrote the album’s music and co-wrote the lyrics.  The  first single, a Gainsbourg/Beck duet “Heaven Can Wait,” is available on iTunes.  The surreal Keith Schofield-directed video features a series of visual non sequiturs set in slow motion.  IRM is expected January 26, 2010. In the meantime, you can listen to clips from the entire album, including my favorite track, “Greenwich Mean Time,” here.

    Plus she’s Serge’s daughter! And it doesn’t get better than Serge Gainsbourg.
