Biography

CocoRosie is sisters Sierra and Bianca Casady, a visionary duo with a startling ability to tackle the most taboo of subjects with complete honesty and spiritual freedom.

4.0 out of 5 stars Curiously Does It 16 Jun 2013
By The Wolf TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
The Casady sisters Sienna and Bianca have always been up for a bit
of weirdness. Weavers of strange dreams and poignant oddities, their
new album 'Tales Of A Grasswidow' continues their journey into some
of the listening world's most elusive corners. There is a somewhat
stronger rhythmic drive in these eleven compositions than we have
encountered in their previous work. This has much to do with their
collaboration with producer Valgeir Sigurosson who brings added weight
and subtle texture to this wonderfully wayward duo's sonic inventions.

Standout tracks would have to include the magical opening number 'After
The Afterlife', a pretty nursery rhyme of a song, full of fleeting shadows,
fractured piano and a backbeat almost fit for for the dancefloor; the darkly
dubby 'Tears For Animals' with its affecting warbled interludes courtesy
of Antony Hegarty; 'Broken Chariot', which touches an ancient nerve with
its pagan bells, whistles and brittle vocal shards and the ephemeral but
strangely beautiful 'Far Away', channeling Bjork and Laurie Anderson in
the creation of a novel form of soul for the spaces between the stars.

Captivating, quirky, curiously touching and in its own small way quite unique.

Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderfully unique 9 Sep 2013
By Sonia
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Having seen CocoRosie live twice over the past 15 months, I am now a firm fan, and their latest gig included many tracks from this album. Mad, ethereal, urban and unqiue, they can do no wrong in my eyes

Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Not the best álbum of Cocorosie, but even so, a nice collection of music, with some specific tracks that can be totally identified with Cocorosie fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars theme music to me life 5 Jun 2013
By Kyra - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
CocoRosie and their brilliant collaborators are of the few honest, intuitive, sentient truth sayers in the arts in general today, much less, music. All while being the least apologetic and least victimized. They manage to keep love in their hearts while telling of tragedies like child rape while poetically paralleling that action of rape with what has been going on with the earth. What I get from this album is that raping children and the perpetual abuse of feminine aspect over millenia is based in the same principle of the disassociation of humanity from nature...our human nature, and what allows for it. The music supports this without being morose, but almost dreamy and hopeful for those who care to join into the shift, a new sensibility of how things aught to be...

5.0 out of 5 stars Always Deliver 29 May 2013
By Trevor Howell - Published on Amazon.com
Here's the thing about CocoRosie, they have something special. They allow their music to pour out from their souls (and in the case of this album the soul of the Earth) and that brings a sense of familiarity even though the music is always incredibly unique and some would even say bizarre. They never fail to stray from what they believe in and always are looking forward with a sense of hope and dare I say a little bit of horror. Antony once again joins the duo for a couple of songs bringing the tortured yet optimistic approach she's known for. Always a much welcomed pleasure when Antony is involved.

This album seems to be more accessible than previous albums but that doesn't mean they lose any sense of magic they've been proven to have. CocoRosie continuously pushes into the future of music and more importantly the evolution of humanity. They aren't just musicians they are artists, they are animals, they are wild and free and I believe everyone has something to learn from them.

So, buy this album.
Listen to it.
Listen to it again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not for everyone...but I love it!!!!!!!!! 5 Jan 2014
By pixiecrossing - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
They refer to Coco Rosie's music as "experimental", and it seems like that at times. The way they make sound come together is fascinating to me. I saw them live and they were phenomenal. This is my favorite album so far.

5.0 out of 5 stars best yet... 8 Jun 2013
By fff3k - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
...or at least, as good as 'noah's ark'. that was my favorite cocorosie album since, well, 'noah's ark'. 'tales of a grasswidow' is a long way from the raw, homemade quality of that earlier album. it's polished, 'professional'. but the group sounds wonderful, and the songs are as good as anything they've done before.

i love the sound of the album, and the singing; still quirky, and still wonderful... bianca's voice has developed into a unique, odd and lovely thing. maybe an acquired taste...but works for me.

so, a great album overall, and a necessity for any cocorosie fan...
5.0 out of 5 stars Clean sound. 25 Mar 2014

This is definitely one of my favorite Cocorosie albums, right up there with Grey Oceans. The vinyl sounds great. Clean with no hiss, pops, or skips.
