After collaborating on her 2010 album IRM, Beck and Charlotte Gainsbourg joined forces again for the title-track to her 2011 Terrible Angles EP. Beck’s Midas touch is immediately noticeable from the beginning as “Terrible Angels” begins with Gainsbourg cooing over skittering videogame bleeps and blips before a big, booming bass drops under programmed beats and a jangly tambourine. Floating above all these groovy mechanics, Gainsbourg’s lilting inflections squeeze subtle hints of emotion through a demure cool. The acoustic-based “Memoir” is much easier on the ears as she whisper-sings preciously over simple guitar strumming and minimal ambient accompaniment. Written by Conor O’Brien (Villagers), “Memoir” finds Gainsbourg inadvertently recalling some late-‘60s recordings by Claudine Longet. A forerunner to Stage Whisper, Gainsbourg’s double album of live and unreleased material, the EP is bookended with two live recordings; an over-the-top version of “IRM” followed by a beautifully intimate acoustic rendering of Bob Dylan’s “Just Like a Woman” replete with spare glockenspiel.
2 new songs--FOR 6 BUCKS?
Or hey, you can just buy the individual songs at the inflated price of $1.29! iTunes is so obnoxious, I honestly have trouble understanding how people still use this "service."
I've been waiting for this for a while..
and I haven't had it for half an hour and it's already lived up to every expectation. Dangerous Angels is one of the only new things on the album, but it's a lot, and just as good anyway. I hope to see a new full on album from her soon. IRM is one of the only things I'll give people as a gift that isn't a book. I think Charlotte Gainsbourg can never fail.
Can't wait for the new record, Memoir & Terrible Angels are amazing, lovely songs.
