Coeur de pirate

Should've posted about this gal a lot earlier, but it took a while before Coeur de Pirate's album reached me (but SOM posted a great track way earlier). The good thing is, now I know that if you buy through the website of her label (the home of Tricot Machine too), you get a free CdP-button. And I strongly urge you to buy this album, for 18-year old Beatrice Martin from Montreal made an absolutely stunning cd. Wish I knew about this earlier, so that I could've put a track on FF#2. Beatrice plays the piano and her singing voice is a cross between Tori Amos and Feist. As far as I can decipher them, the songs are about heartbreak, deathwish, tears and pain. Bad experiences are good for art, as we all know. She likes Sartre, Kundera, Aznavour, Alaska, Argentina and dancing socially.

  1. Certainly not the best track according to her MySpace. But what a delicious voice and appearance! Hooray for bad experiences; there'a alraedy a mail on it's to my local cd-shop. Great tip again, thanks.

  2. Yes, she has a nice voice. But for a similar voice with more biting texts, check out fellow Montrealer Caroline Keating (www.myspace.com/carolinekeating). She has some bilingual and French songs, and writes them all herself. Enjoy!
