CocoRosie The Adventures Of Ghosthorse And Stillborn on LP + Download
Reissue of the Band's Third Album from 2007
La Maison de Mon Rêve (2004) and Noah's Ark (2005) introduced us to CocoRosie's unique, occasionally unsettling and always captivating musical landscape. From their minimalist beginnings in 2003, as an acoustic folk vocal duo, to their live revue featuring break dancing and French MCs, CocoRosie have consistently evolved and delighted in pushing boundaries and defying expectations.
2007's The Adventures Of Ghosthorse and Stillborn, the third ventricle of the CocoRosie liturgy, represents another stride onward from their previous works. After completing demos in the south of France, CocoRosie went to Reykjavik to collaborate with producer Valgeir Sigurðsson, most widely known as Bjork's main studio conspirator since Dancer in the Dark.
On Adventures the girls continue to experiment with their disparate voices and clashing personalities, juxtaposing devastating ballads like "Werewolf" with exhilarating tracks like "Japan" and the jaunty single "Rainbowarriors." CocoRosie see this album as a departure from their earlier obscured blur of stained glass rêve to what they describe as "a more self-exploitive memoir."
This isn't just the third record from CocoRosie, it's the record that will make you think twice about CocoRosie. The Adventures of Ghosthorse and Stillborn is a lush, orchestral array of sounds and beauty - A vaudevillian opera, if you will.
