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. The new collection’s out in May and lead track “Lemonade” finds Bianca and Sierra in a more downcast, less obviously danceable mode. I generally like the group best when they sound insular and emotionally naked but impenetrable and unexpectedly catchy. This one does that trick. As does the majority of Grey Oceans, all of which goes very well with the dusky cover pics.
Grey Oceans is out 5/11 via Sub Pop. The above image is the CD cover. Below you’ll find the LP cover. Both photos were taken by the artist Matt Greene.
