Welcome to "Nothing Not New," a yearlong project in which New Times editorial operations manager Jay Bennett, a 40-year-old music fan and musician, will listen only to music released in 2010. Each Monday through Friday, he will listen to one new record (no best ofs, reissues, or concert recordings) and write about it. Why? Because in the words of his editor, Martin Cizmar, he suffers from "aesthetic atrophy," a wasting away of one's ability to embrace new and different music as one ages. Read more about this all-too-common ailment here.
I picked this album to listen to today because I was curious to hear what the French actress/singer Charlotte Gainsbourg had to offer, given that a) she's probably better known as an actress, b) she's the daughter of the legendary singer Serge Gainsbourg. I remember seeing her in the mid-1990s in a film adaptation of Jane Eyre. I can't recall much else she was in until she appeared in 21 Grams, starring Naomi Watts and Sean Penn, and then in the offbeat Bob Dylan biopic I'm Not There in 2007. Anyway, she's a solid actress.
