Love Is


What better way to say "Happy Valentine's Day" than by inviting a lusty, vaguely incestuous Frenchman into your hearts and homes? Discograph is going to release the Serge Gainsbourg covers album, Monsieur Gainsbourg Revisited, on February 27th. Yes, we realize that's two weeks from V-Day but we already tinted the pic to look like candy hearts but work with us people. The bands covering SG classics include lots of former FADER features, with an emphasis on unexpected team-ups (Franz Ferdie and Jane Berkin! Cat Power and Mrs Jack White!) so you can imagine our psyched-ness. This one looks like it's worth every cent you'll lose on the currency exchange when ordering an import copy. Full tracklist after the jump.
