CocoRosie Put the Shine On Colored Vinyl 2LP
CocoRosie is the music-based project of American cross-disciplinary performance artists Sierra and Bianca Casady. Their songs blend a myriad of styles and references, from hip-hop to folk and opera, shaping the most painful of experiences into memorable and evocative pop songs. Taken as a whole, CocoRosie's music is an ongoing psychologically intimate dialogue between the siblings.
Each sister has multiple personae and vocal styles; Bianca delivers troubadourian-style rap while Sierra often responds with ethereal tones while accompanying their voices on harp, piano, or guitar. A quintessential part of their sound is a percussive landscape made using children's toys and other found objects which adds a particular nostalgia to their songs.
CocoRosie's seventh album – the aptly titled Put The Shine On – is a study in extremes, balancing some of the most pristine and adroit pop songs the band has ever crafted, while simultaneously exploring the most extreme states of human feeling and being – the result being an album that is both pristine and, at times, harrowing.
Nearly two decades deep into a career marked by experimentation and bucking convention, the duo have made what is arguably their most well-considered, emotionally complicated, and sonically adventurous record of their career.
