Heart of a pirate
Coeur de Pirate || Comme des enfants from Dare To Care Records on Vimeo.
When I go to another country, I try to do several things aside from the usual seeing of sights. 1) Go to a supermarket. I love seeing unfamiliar foods. 2) Buy a cookbook of the local cuisine, preferably in English. 3) Buy a CD of a local musician.
This past October while in Quebec, I picked up the debut of Beatrice Martin, a seemingly wise-beyond-her-years 18-year-old who records under the name Coeur de Pirate.
I have no idea what she's singing about, but the whole album is as lovely as the song in the video above.
If you like it ... well, you seem to be out of luck. I just checked Amazon's Canadian site, and it's not there. Nor is it on iTunes, or the Web site of the record label that posted the video.
UPDATE: Well, that was oddly difficult to find. It's here.
UPDATE UPDATE: Her MySpace page is here.
