MP3: CocoRosie ‘Un Beso’
CocoRosie, the sister-sister duo of Sierra and Bianca Casady, is back after a short hiatus. On Sept. 18, the band will release its sixth album and follow-up to 2013’s Tales of a Grasswidow.
A live recording of “Un Beso” is the newest track released as a teaser to the LP. The songs offers the experimental quirks expected of the band, which has been performing for more than a decade. It features “hip-hopera” rap-singing, beatboxing, and interesting lyrics like “Who are you? Someone with no dandruff?,” “Fingerf*cking the fireflies,” and “Spying on the masturbating snails.”
On the forthcoming album, the two say in a press release:
Like many of our past records, we wrote and gathered much of the material at our farm studio in the south of France with minimal equipment, vintage toys and antique instruments. Going back to a ‘4-track’ style approach, we limited ourselves to essential, acoustic accompaniment, played by us, and select percussion, toys from our old suit cases dating back to the “La Maison” days. Unlike our more psychedelic/electronic explorations of the last two records, our latest songs have a dusty southern feel with old-timey poetry. We ended up in Argentina where we finished the recordings and mixed the record with engineer Nicolas Kalwill with whom we’ve worked on two previous records. The spirit of Buenos Aires added to our already teen-romance-nostalgic-mood where we spontaneously shot a music video casting over 30 local girls.
