Announced today, MTV Iggy fave Charlotte Gainsbourg is heading out on a tour that’ll take her from a backyard gig at Le Festival Francofolies to Vancouver, Canada — with gigs in between at Coachella etc.
Perhaps better known for her starring roles in everything from Lars Von Trier’s Antichrist to Michel Gondry’s The Science of Sleep, the lithe brunette’s music career has been heating up. Pitchfork put her album in the “Best New Music” category, my old roomate Jed was obsessed with it (f*ck P4k, he’s the ultimate tastemaker), and she’s collaborated quite wholesomely with American indie king Beck on a few songs we featured on this site.
If you want a little backstage action, head to Gainsbourg’s site and watch the video titled “Rehearsal.” It was filmed by her 12-year-old son, Ben, who gets more intimate behind the scenes footage than a fleet of MTV IGGY producers could ever dream of.
