Charlotte Gainsbourg and Beck - KCRW 2010.

This is Charlotte Gainsbourg and Beck in session earlier this year on KCRW's excellent Morning Becomes Ecelectic, this was first broadcast on Wednesday 27th January 2010.

Last year Charlotte Gainsbourg worked with Beck on her latest album 'IRM' indeed Beck was extremely involved in the project as he wrote all of the record's music, he co-wrote the lyrics, produced, and mixed the album.

That said Charlotte Gainsbourg brings her atmospheric and timeless vocals to the album that gives it a really unique feel as can be heard here in the session. For those new to Charlotte's music this makes a great introduction, as a fan of french pop from the sixties onwards I may be a little biased, however with the pedigree of Beck this is just to good to miss.

Charlotte Gainsbourg was born in London and was raised in Paris. She is of course the daughter of British actress and singer Jane Birkin and French singer-songwriter, actor and director Serge Gainsbourg.

Been quite some time now I've been willing to thank you for your superb work & fantastic site and all the pleasures I derive from it. That your musical culture goes as far as French pop from the 60's" goes straight at my national heart. So thanks again and keep up the good work.
