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. Crafting songs that blend a myriad of styles and references ranging from folk and opera to hip-hop and reggae, the sisters often tranform the most painful of experiences into memorable, evocative pop anthems.

Editorial Reviews

CocoRosie are two American-born sisters, Sierra and Bianca, who started making music together in Paris in 2003. Their first album, La Maison de Mon Rêve, was released in 2004 and their second album, Noah s Ark, followed in 2005. Their third and, to now, most recent album, The Adventures of Ghosthorse and Stillborn, came out in 2007. All three of these albums were released worldwide on Touch and Go Records and earned critical acclaim both overseas and at home.

The nomadic duo (currently and temporarily residing in New Mexico) spent much of 2008 writing and recording in Buenos Aires, Melbourne, Berlin, New York, and Paris, finding amazing and diverse musicians to collaborate along the way. The result is their 11-song Sub Pop debut, Grey Oceans, due out May 11th, 2010.

Cocorosie have gone off and made a quieter, more introspective record. A solid one at that. While previous efforts have gone a bit awry with some of the sampling choices - much of this record works as a collective whole. Everything from Middle-Eastern-tinged "Smokey Taboo," to 1950's crooning "Lemonade" and the hip-hop-baroque-piano noodling of "The Moon Asked The Crow"- CocoRosie keep building on their ability to build a patchwork of styles and make it work.

5.0 out of 5 stars magical! August 17, 2010
By DAVID
Format:Audio CD
Cocorosie is probably my favorite band right now. I found out they were playing a few hundred miles from where I lived so I hitchhiked down there and caught their performance. It was one of the best shows I've ever seen. Their style is uncategorizable, very personal and unique. I've listened to Grey Oceans a number of times now and it just keeps sounding better and better. Perhaps not quite the tour-de-force that was The Adventures of Ghosthorse and Stillborn, but awesome in its own way. Experimental, cutting edge, poetic, with a certain earnest charm that's all too rare in today's jaded musical climate. I tend to get choked up when I listen to these girls. I'm going to see them again next month and I'm sure I'll love it even more now that the songs on Grey Oceans have sunk in a little. I listen to good music all day long, I'm like a walkman junkie but they really stand out for me, the stuff they do just gets to me. Magic, mystery, tears, exquisite beauty and just plain fun! Thanks, guys!

4.0 out of 5 stars Cocorosie at it again May 21, 2010
Format:Vinyl|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this album. Cocorosie is an acquired taste and this latest album is a bit experimental, even for them. There were a couple songs that I would describe as hit or miss, but there were just as many musical passages that gave me a shiver of delight, and several tracks I liked instantly. Not as good as Noah's Ark, but definitely worth purchasing. The album is a very cool translucent blue, the sleeve art laughably horrible (on purpose, I hope)!

4.0 out of 5 stars back down the well... May 29, 2010
By fff3k
Format:Audio CD
i've only listened once thru this so far (finding it harder & harder these days to sit thru a whole album...victim of shuffle mode, alas).
but am appreciating the density, the twists and turns, the 'magic'. feels like a step forward from maison and noah's ark, and may yet prove to be my favorite CR album to date (ghosthorse seems more like a departure, altho some of it is great).

am glad for this, i love the adventurous, unexpected part of cocorosie music (i liked 'god has a voice' as well, just for what it is).

need to listen again, but, if you're a fan, this is a great album. if you don't know their music, be prepared. it's worth taking the journey. c u there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mature, Spiritual, and Beautiful... December 5, 2010
Format:Audio CD
CocoRosie are probably the strangest thing I listen to. Many people find their music pretentious and over the top, and I definitely disagree. Many people compare them to Bjork, and accuse them of trying to be like her; I strongly disagree with that too.

I really want to say that I love their music, not because it's "weird", and not because it's obscure. I love a lot of "weird" music, and have often been accused of "trying to be weird, and/or different". Most people (those who only listen to "Top 40" music, or music that sounds like it could be in the Top 40) think that people like me listen to this music because we want to be weird, and that listening to this music helps us fulfill our "weird" persona. I have often been asked why I like such "weird" music. To be honest, I don't know how to answer that question! Maybe I just am "weird", and that's why I like it. I cannot stomach most of the absolute trash that is played on the radio. I don't hate this music just because it's popular (I'm a big fan of many commercially succesful artists), I hate it because it lacks character, sincerity, and most of it seems to be about "pumping the club" and drinking.

Back to the Bjork comparisons; the only similarities between Bjork and CocoRosie are that they are both female, and are both very strange. Sadly, I think people tend to label many unique, or "strange" female artists as "trying to be like Bjork", which only shows that they haven't really allowed themselves to actually LISTEN to the music (there is a big difference between hearing and listening). I am a huge fan of Bjork and CocoRosie. I have all of their albums, and know their music very very well. I actually prefer CocoRosie!

5.0 out of 5 stars Better and Better October 3, 2010
By Kay
Format:Audio CD
This album is more smooth and sophisticated than previous CocoRosie albums. It's a little quieter, but it has an vast amount of emotional force. The lyrics, as always, are strange and delicately beautiful.

...I wish people would stop comparing all strange female vocalists to Bjork. It would be nice if they could lay off Emiliana Torrini about that, too.

I love CocoRosie because their dreamlike sounds, like gently falling piano notes or the chirping of birds, meld seamlessly with haunting operatic vocals, and contrast arrestingly with slightly raspy, nasal, and hard-hitting vocals. For one. Ultimately I love them for the same reason that I like any other artist - not because I think they are "artsy", but simply because I like them.

Refreshingly disturbing. I bought this along with Tales of A Grasswido after hearing Cocorosie on a Paste sampler. No regrets. This is wonderful stuff, but not for the squeamish.
