What we said:
Boasting an unsurpassed pedigree of cool, it seems that Charlotte Gainsbourg
excels in whatever task she turns her skilful hand to. So, after greedily gathering plaudits for her acting in 2009, this year the chameleonic beauty once more took on the role of belle chanteuse, to release the follow up to the acclaimed 5:55
. For IRM
she’d enlisted the production wizardry of a certain Mr Beck
Hansen and together they took us on an expansive sonic adventure, equal parts surreal and enchanting. Fashion, cookery, welding… nobody knows where she’ll go next, but we’re going to be luxuriating in these songs until she returns to the mic.
