Charlotte Gainsbourg, Stage Whisper | TRES COOL The impossibly French actress and Lars von Trier muse turns out unreleased studio tracks and skinny jean-friendly electropop

Stage Whisper

type:
Music
Current Status:
In Season
performer:
Charlotte Gainsbourg
music label:
4303
genre:
Indie Rock

We gave it a B+

If you know her only as the very intense Parisian lady from Lars von Trier movies, this double album should serve as a good introduction to Gainsbourg and her ultracool brand of electro-pop. Featuring unreleased studio tracks as well as live performances of songs from her 2009 breakout IRM, Stage Whisper is all slow-grinding skinny-jeans disco and breathy emotional detachment. In other words: impossibly chic, and impossibly French. B+
