CocoRosie Tales Of A GrassWidow on Limited Edition Colored LP + Download

CocoRosie - sisters Sierra and Bianca Casady - is 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 transform the most painful of experiences into memorable, evocative pop anthems. Taken as a whole, CocoRosie is an ongoing dialogue between the siblings. Each sister has her own persona and vocal delivery; Bianca delivers hard-hitting truths in a child-like voice while Sierra responds in pure open tones, playing a range of instruments including the harp, flute, piano, and guitar.

Back with a remarkable fifth album, entitled Tales Of A GrassWidow, CocoRosie produced their latest effort in collaboration with Icelandic composer Valgeir Sigurðsson and incorporated a host of guest performances, including frequent collaborator Antony Hegarty and longtime beatbox cohort Tez. The sisters decided to move forward with a self release for their latest offering, overseeing all aspects of the album production cycle from the perspective of an artist, subsequently gaining insight and a new level of control over the complete process. 

The result is magnificent, a brave lyrical composition that draws parallels between the destruction of the earth’s natural resources and the loss of innocence resulting from child abuse, synthesizing electronic and organic sounds to convey a futuristic, back-to-nature feeling while tackling bold issues. In their ten years as CocoRosie, the sisters have released four albums: Grey Oceans (2010), The Adventures of Ghosthorse and Stillborn (2007), Noah’s Ark (2005), and their first album La Maison De Mon Rêve (2004) – each inspiring equal amounts of controversy, debate and praise.
