French actress & singer Charlotte Gainsbourg's newest album, Irm, ($12) was co-written and produced with Beck, and it's clearly reflected in this eclectic collection of tunes. Our favorite, "La Collectionneuse," features velvety, dissonant piano chords against Gainsbourg's signature whispery speak-singing style. Songs are by turns ethereal and spunky, and always unexpected. There's even a beautiful Beatles-esque duet with Beck, "Heaven Can Wait," that'll have you tapping your toes and bopping to the beat like a teenager.
