5:55 – Charlotte Gainsbourg (2006)


I first heard of this CD 5:55 from a NY Times poplist giving selections made by Bebel Gilberto, and found an import copy (from Hong Kong of all places) down at the local shop. Charlotte Gainsbourg is Serge’s daughter (her mother is Jane Birkin), and the CD is quite an all-star affair, with music by Air, production by Nigel Godrich, and Jarvis Cocker on the songwriting team. I’ve only played it twice so far, and it’s growing on me. Good for that late night wind down time. Pitchfork thinks it’s only so-so. Looks like a domestic release is due out this week.
