"Trauma" by Cœur de pirate

My newest album addition a week or so ago was "Trauma" by Cœur de pirate (Béatrice Martin) which is available on Bandcamp as a 16bit 44.1kHz download in FLAC or ALAC; its also available in VBR MP3 or AAC lossy files, or Ogg Vorbis format. You can also access it using Bandcamp's free mobile access. Released on 14 January 2014 I believe this is Cœur de pirate's only album since Blonde (here second album released in November 2011), so it's been a while coming...
This is an album of covers - which a slightly eclectic selection of songs, but very much in keeping with the atmosphere the album is intended to generate (see below), and nevertheless something I'm finding enjoyable and just a little different from Béatrice Martin's other work.

The songs on this album are for Season 5 of Fabienne Larouche’s popular TV hospital drama on Radio-Canada (see the Cœur de pirate Website). Trauma is a Canadian television medical drama series, which premiered in January 2010. The series is set in the trauma unit of the fictional "Hôpital Saint-Arsène" in Montreal, Quebec. The album track listing is:
  1. Ain't No Sunshine
  2. Heartbeats Accelerating
  3. Summer Wine
  4. You Know I'm No Good
  5. Music When The Lights Go Out
  6. Last Kiss
  7. Lucille
  8. Slow Show
  9. Bottom Of The World
  10. Dead Flowers
  11. The Great Escape
  12. Flume
In addition to Bandcamp the album is also available on iTunes. You can sample for free on Bandcamp, so worth a listen.
