beck and Charlotte Gainsbourg

Charlotte Gainsbourg
by Doug Levy
After collaborating with Air for her last album, Charlotte Gainsbourg teams with Beck for IRM, a record inspired in part by the French star’s run-in with head trauma.

The album’s title is French for MRI, a test Gainsbourg became familiar with after a 2007 boating accident. The sounds of the machine inspired the title track, one of an album’s worth that Beck composed with her input. Meanwhile, the pair duet on the dreamy single “Heaven Can Wait,” while songs like “Trick Pony” and “Greenwich Mean Time” bring a funkier edge to the proceedings.

Following her star turn in Lars von Trier’s 2009 shocker Antichrist, IRM finds the daughter of Serge Gainsbourg and Jane Birkin back in a more comfortable place, once again showing her ability to juggle acting and music careers without seeming out of place in either.

Visit Charlotte Gainsbourg on MySpace, read a recent interview, stop by her official site, catch her live at this year’s Coachella festival, and buy the album.
