Description (English):
“This will be our sixth record! 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 Kalwillwith 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.”

In their eleven years as CocoRosie the sisters have released five albums:Tales of A Grass Widow (2013),Grey Oceans (2010),The Adventures of Ghosthorse and Stillborn (2007), Noah’s Ark (2005), and their first album, La Maison de Mon Reve (2004), each one inspiring controversy and debate in equal amounts to praise; such is their fearlessness and willingness to take risks with their art. This strong creative vision runs through every aspect of their work – from videos to live performance utilizing theatrical costumes and make up which they create alongside each new body of songs.

Reviews (English):
“Their sixth album is a welcome return to what made them great in the first place.”- The FADER.

“The Casady sisters keep it precious and weird even as they explore more expansive pop sounds.”- NY Magazine.
