WRITING SAMPLE:

IRM is a Beck album—with a twist. Charlotte Gainsbourg’s twilight-sweet singing is that twist. Reminiscent of Astrud Gilberto with Brazil ‘66, she is hip yet welcoming. The rest is signature Beck: avant-folk guitars, quirky beats, wonky fuzz, strings, flotsam for lyrics. It’s a Beck album alright: a very good one.
