Charlotte Gainsbourg: Les Oxalis

A new video by Charlotte Gainsbourg, with an appropriately sombre clip for Les Oxalis.

The track again comes from her Rest album, released last month and arguably her finest work.

I'm a big fan of her previous albums, and this one may even surpass those. It's a crafted and dense work, with much to take in.

If there were any doubt that Gainsbourg was a successful actor whose music work could be regarded as a side project, this album made clear that she very much remains a unique musical artist, deserving of the commercial success and critical praise she's received.

It's another extraordinary clip, the video for Les Oxalis was, like her previous video for Lying with you, directed by Gainsbourg herself.

Gainsbourg stars in the film La Promesse de l'Aube, due to be released in France on December 20.
