CocoRosie and their brilliant collaborators are of the few honest, intuitive, sentient truth sayers in the arts in general today, much less, music. All while being the least apologetic and least victimized. They manage to keep love in their hearts while telling of tragedies like child rape while poetically paralleling that action of rape with what has been going on with the earth.
What I get from this album is that raping children and the perpetual abuse of feminine aspect over millenia is based in the same principle of the disassociation of humanity from nature The music supports this without being morose, but almost dreamy and hopeful for those who care to join into So, Another Big Year For The Pets.
New CD Of Course, But In February, The Outstanding Achievement Aw shift, a new sensibility of how things aught to Far Away - CocoRosie - Tales Of A Grasswidow So being a guy from the 60's and 70's, I mostly listen to the rock and roll of my times along with current progressive rock bands. This is such a refreshing change and I can not get enough. My girlfriend and I saw CocoRosie live not long ago and it was a blast. The sisters were having so much fun on stage that you could not help but feel the good vibes.
Artist have a right to evolve their craft and I appreciate that. One person found this helpful. Majestic, haunting, beautiful, unique, original, poetic, and most importantly heart felt. Coco Rosie has the ability to take you to that kaleidoscope of childhood where we see things at a slightly different angle and in a incommensurable light.
My family of five loves Coco Rosie and this album Far Away - CocoRosie - Tales Of A Grasswidow no different. Tales of a Grasswidow is a mix between haunting dark tones with joyous childhood adventures on the edge of mortality. Another piece of art from the SeaStars.

If you want great new Far Away - CocoRosie - Tales Of A Grasswidow every week, cheap, sign up for Paste! The song "Gravediggress" gave me chills but I couldn't help listening to it again and again. Finally looked up the girls on YouTube and bought this album and Grey Oceans. I'm hooked. This is not your normal music. This is artfully designed musical drama cut into short songs full of aural images that will disturb and entrance you. I love it. I am definitely a fan of older CocoRosie a little more, but I always really appreciate the growth or path of new albums by artists that I love.
With voices like these girls have, it's hard to sound too different, but the experimentation in the music is still there nonetheless. Enjoyable for me. They refer to Coco Rosie's music as "experimental", and it seems like that at times. The way they make sound come together is fascinating to me. I saw them live and they were phenomenal. This is my favorite Far Away - CocoRosie - Tales Of A Grasswidow so far. If you are already a fan, you are not reading this to decide whether to buy it.
In this age of Spotify and Rhapsody, if Cocorosie is new to you, you have Far Away - CocoRosie - Tales Of A Grasswidow need to take anyone's word.
