worth hearing: Charlotte Gainsbourg

As the daughter of Serge Gainsbourg and Jane Birkin, it appears that Charlotte sort of got the best of both worlds; she has a healthy dose of her father’s musical talent, while resembling her mom.

Primarily known as an actor, she’s now released a very nice album called 5:55. As you’ll undoubtedly notice when listening to the track below, the sonics on the album sound familiar. Basically, 5:55 is an Air record with Charlotte’s vocals laid atop. Good news is that it works.

Check out Charlotte Gainsbourg’s 5:55:
