CocoRosie – “Gravediggress” Video

The art-pop sister duo CocoRosie released the new album Tales Of A Grass Widow earlier this year, and it’s already yielded two impressive videos, the prettily disorienting “After The Afterlife” and the prettily disturbing “Child Bride.” Bianca Casady, one half of the duo, directed the album’s third video, for “Gravediggress.” It’s a fucked-up vision of… More »

Backtrack: Various Artists The Golden Apples Of The Sun

Looking back, it’s actually difficult to capture just how weird and momentous the freak folk movement of the first half of the 2000s felt. It wasn’t cobbled together so much as it was a united front of weirdos that were obsessed with their own skewed vision of the past — AM radio gold sat comfortably… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

Hey look, new graphic! Now this column can look something like the Best Songs Of The Week column, and now I can keep just the tiniest bit of suspense in this countdown; you have to scrowl down yourself to see what’s number one. Thanks to Claire’s homegirl Ho-Mui Wong for the image. This week’s pick… More »

CocoRosie – “Child Bride” Video

“Child Bride,” from CocoRosie’s new album Tales Of A Grass Widow, is a deeply discomfiting number, sung from the point of view of a little kid who’s getting ready for her new husband. The gorgeous-looking new video, directed by Emma Freeman, turns the song into something even harder to take, simply by depicting the song’… More »

CocoRosie – “After The Afterlife” Video

The video for “After The Afterlife,” the new single from art-music duo CocoRosie, is full of beautiful images: Bodies floating through water, waves crashing against cliff-faces. But it also has ominous things — fire and flashing lights and a monster chasing you — filmed in beautiful ways. All that seems appropriate for a pretty song… More »

CocoRosie – “After The Afterlife”

After “Gravediggress,” the first single from CocoRosie’s upcoming Tales Of A Grass Widow, it was clear that the band’s macabre, somber wave is here to stay. With “After The Afterlife,” the sister duo has weaved lullaby with off-kilter pop track. The whole thing is magically sweet and eerie. Check it out below. More »

CocoRosie – “Gravediggress”

Last we heard from CocoRosie, they had released a two-track 7″ on Touch And Go featuring a collaboration with Antony Hegarty. Now the sister duo has returned with their latest single “Gravediggress” in anticipation of a new LP, Tales Of A Glass Widow, in the spring. This track is beaming with Tom Waits’s Little Sister… More »

CocoRosie – “We Are On Fire” Video

Last month, the freaky sisterly art-folk duo CocoRosie returned with their new single “We Are On Fire.” The song’s striking new video, from director Emma Freeman, is full of artfully compositions that’ll get utterly stuck in your brainpan. Occult imagery abounds, bodies fall in exquisite slow-motion, and the whole thing seems to take place o… More »

CocoRosie – “Tearz For Animals” (Feat. Antony Hegarty)

Antony is an eloquently outspoken champion of CocoRosie, and a frequent collaborator to the sisters Casady, so be not surprised that a new collab track exists. Nor that it is vocally awesome. “Tearz For Animals” appears as a b-side to CocoRosie’s new Dave Sitek-produced 7″ “We Are On Fire,” though from lineup to lyrics, productio… More »

CocoRosie – “We Are On Fire”

It’s been a moment since we’ve heard from the sisterly freak-pop duo CocoRosie, but they’ll soon release a new single that TV On The Radio sound guru Dave Sitek produced. Below, we’ve got a stream of the A-side “We Are On Fire,” an evocative lope that moves the duo somewhere in the vicinity of trip-hop. More »

Op-Ed: An Artists’ Dialogue On CocoRosie’s Grey Oceans

A few years ago I wrote a positive review of CocoRosie’s The Adventures of Ghosthorse And Stillborn. Too positive, it turns out: The publication that assigned it killed the piece at the 11th hour and instead ran a snarky takedown. I’d never had that happen before and I’ve been championing challenging music for a long… More »

CocoRosie – “Lemonade” Video

CocoRosie’s fourth album (and Sub Pop debut) Grey Oceans sounds like its album cover looks, insular and dusky and blue. It’s naked but oblique and, as always, ghostly, personal, and catchy. The duo expand the album’s visual field with the lush, gorgeously surreal video for “Lemonade.” It’s sort of like Bianca and Sierra’s emotionally divided… More »

ATP 2010: Curated By Matt Groening @ Butlin’s Holiday Centre, Minehead, UK

Iggy Pop and Toumani Diabate were the highlights of the first night (along with ATP staples Built To Spill, Broadcast, Liars, and Shonen Knife).

CocoRosie – “Lemonade”

Prior to news of CocoRosie’s forthcoming Sub Pop debut Grey Oceans, the duo’s fourth album overall album, the last we’d heard from the sisters Casady was auto-tuned Touch & Go single “God Has A Voice, She Speaks Through Me,” a sort of post-The Adventures of Ghosthorse And Stillborn stopgap. And a good one at that. More »

New CocoRosie Video – “God Has A Voice, She Speaks Through Me”

It’s fun watching people react to CocoRosie. I’ve always liked them, but was especially a fan of The Adventures Of Ghosthorse & Stillborn, its gorgeous tales of intimate escape, private languages, and everyday rituals set to the duo’s homegrown trippiness. “God Has A Voice, She Speaks Through Me” goes heavy on the auto-tune, clouding the… More »

New CocoRosie – “God Has A Voice, She Speaks Through Me”

A year after The Adventures Of Ghosthorse & Stillborn, the sisters Casady are back with a digital-only single, “God Has A Voice, She Speaks Through Me.” We’re told Bianca and Sierra are working a new album, which will be out in 2009, and that, like “God..” it will involve “exploring spiritual dance music, driven by… More »

New CocoRosie Video – “Rainbowarriors”

For their latest effort, CocoRosie have infused their off-kilter sonic collages with a touch of novelty hip-hop cadence and Beck-ish beat appropriation, both of which color their single “Rainbowarriors.” One part faux-stach, two parts French fashion, and a glittery dance-off kicker.

If you haven’t heard the album that NY Mag call… More »
