Trauma: Chansons de la série TV

Disc review

Montreal franco-pop chanteuse gets her cover-girl on with these 12 (mostly) acoustic guitar and piano, English-language interpretations of songs from the first two seasons of hit Rad-Can TV series Trauma, and she owns these songs so hard you have to wonder if anyone will ever be able to pry them away from her. It’s a completely cohesive collection of disparate tunes that hang together lightly but tightly, with standout selections (and really, they’re all standout) that include REM’s Everybody Hurts, Leonard Cohen’s In My Secret Life, Bob Dylan’s Not Dark Yet, Cat Power’s The Greatest and Martha Wainwright’s Far Away.
