“Sounding 'like two little Billie Holidays an octave higher if you were on acid in Tokyo in 1926' " - Jim Jarmusch

 

Ahead of their sixth studio album Heartache CityCocoRosie shares a third track in a live format called "Lost Girls" (live), you can hear it HERE. The album, which will come out on Friday September 18th, also includes "Un Beso" (live) HERE and "Heartache City" (live) HERE, this last live recording was done in Milan on the second day of CocoRosie's European summer festival tour, played with their band Tez and Takuya Nakamura. The full tracklist for the album is revealed today as well and includes "Bed Bugs", "Tim and Tina" and album opener "Forget Me Not" (see below). The album art was shot on the farm in France. 

 

"Lost Girls" lyrics:

Even though red is not your color

i'll dress you in feathers

and fly you in the windy weather

like a child bird marooned

on an island of cats

little dewy brawling cats

with cross-eyed and hats

they take mercy on you

take you for walks

the mercy choir singing dismal dims

watery bible rhymes

all jumbled a mess

a mess of bright graves

flowers and balloons

stick out your thumb
and lift up your skirt
someone's bound to stop here soon
take down your hair
and wind up your grin
someone's gonna take you home

with a knapsack of trinket
I'm off to seek my fortune again
chasing ghosts of dead orphans
friends, cousin or kin
we wave to the passer by
moth wings of a butterfly 
endless tracks where no car pass
close your eyes and you can fly
I'm off to meet my soul mate 
a naked fawny jail bate 
wading into ponds
filly with polly wigs at dawn
mourning the light
that slipped from my eyes 
a little child with dirty nails
and dirty hair
i hard dirty things scrawled upon my mind

 

The sisters, Bianca and Sierra Casady, went back out on the road touring after a small hiatus; first people in Europe have been able to hear the upcoming songs in a live setting and later in the Fall there will be U.S. dates, including a headline spot at the Symbiosis Festival in Oakdale, Los Angeles, New York, Washington, DC. Other pieces of new music "Hairnet Paradise" and "Big and Black" can be heard here by watching the behind-the-scenes video (by Fernando Portabales) they filmed during the recording process HERE

 

Bianca and Sierra Casady share this information about Heartache City: "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 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."

 

Last September, Sierra and Bianca were part of the Future Feminism art collective including Antony (of Antony and the Johnsons), Kembra Pfahler and Johanna Constantine. The five women made art and organized a lecture series as a call to arms to reorganize as a species and affirm archetypally feminine values. Right before that, they premiered their collaboration of Bob Wilson’s Peter Pan in Paris and Berlin and completed a world tour in support of their album, Tales of a Grasswidow

 

In their eleven years as CocoRosie, the sisters have released five albums: Tales of A GrassWidow (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.
