The Daily Shortlist January 19
Charlotte Gainsbourg has evolved on her last few albums as one of pop’s best artists and on her new album IRM, Beck is on board having produced it. Though it sounds like a Beck album minus Beck on vocals, Gainsbourg has never sounded better. The theme at Press 195 is pressed comfort food. A sandwich shop with quite the menu, they offer 30 types of delicious sandwiches like the turkey and fontina cheese sandwich with a cranberry and roasted pear chutney on ciabatta ($7.75). While Union Hall looks like a cabin at a ski resort with a fireplace, stone walls, comfy couches, and inexpensive drinks, you may want to stick around rather than barhop. A low-key bar in this hood, O’Connor’s is a hole in the wall where you can grab a cheap drink and watch the game on their TV, just like your grandpa sitting next to you!
