I was just hipped to this talented 18-year-old French Canadian singer Beatice Martin (Couer de Pirate) via the comments in a BoingBoing post (her music accompanies a lovely YouTube time lapse of an infant playing).
This led me to a few of her videos on YouTube (all in French):
Commes des enfants
Mange ta ville
Ensemble (Featured in the above-mentioned time lapse video)
I really appreciate that these are all short and sweet. There's no substitute for real talent, amply on display even on these live clips.
I really dig the ink, too.
Listening to Eels right now, amazing. Also hipped from a great BoingBoing post.
As was Old Jews Telling Jokes.
