Charlotte Gainsbourg, daughter of Serge Gainsbourg and Jane Birkin, worked tirelessly on ‘Rest’ for seven years before it was ready for release. The effect of this time spent in gestation is palpable, giving a sense of her meditative and contemplative process of songwriting. ‘Rest’ draws from a broad palette of […]

“While gleefully maintaining the car-wreck intensity of their punkified disco rock, the hooks got hookier, the weirdness got weirder, and the wildness got, well, wilder. The mustached merchants of death dance discord—Sebastien Grainger (vocals, drums) and Jesse F. Keeler (bass, keys, synths)—made a collective decision to embrace their own penchant […]
