CocoRosie Inks Sub Pop Deal

 

Don’t worry, the
facial hair ain’t real, folks…

 

By Fred Mills

 

Is May here yet? Mark your calendars for May 11: that’s when
the sibling indiepop chanteuses known as CocoRosie will issue their Sub Pop
debut. Titled Grey Oceans, it wil be
their fourth overall, following three acclaimed releases on Touch & Go,
2004’s La Maison de Mon Rêve,
2005’s Noah’s Ark, and 2007’s Adventures of Ghosthorse and Stillborn.

 

Three
years between albums is an eternity in rock years, however, so here’s hoping
fans haven’t forgotten Sierra and Bianca’s lush-yet-edgy song stylings. Tracklisting to the new one is below.

 

According
to Sub Pop, “The nomadic duo (currently and
temporarily residing in New Mexico) spent much
of 2008 writing and recording in Buenos Aires, Melbourne, Berlin, New York, and  Paris,
finding amazing and diverse musicians to collaborate along the way.”

 

As usual, the sisters have
something going on with the faux-facial hair thing – check the album art image
above, along with the alternative version below.
