Now that the weather is warming up, It’s really amazing to stop and listen to all of the sounds of extra activity outside. So what exactly are the sounds of summer? Well, certainly children playing, birds chirping, summer traffic, and of course music. Every year there’s that one song that defines the excitement and freedom of summer.
I can’t help but want to share a song by Charlotte Gainsbourg, The daughter of Jane Birkin and singer/songwriter Serge Gainsbourg. Released last year as the cover song for the film Nymphomaniac, where Gainsbourg plays “Joe” alongside Shia LaBeouf, Christian Slater and Uma Thurman. The song, a rendition of Jimi Hendrix’s, was produced by Beck and has the same sort of breathy voice that one might expect from the daughter of Jane. This new remix by SebastiAn grabbed my attention by adding a base of the electro/synth/rock sounds that I love.
