I can't lie and say I'm not vaguely creeped out by CocoRosie. This is possibly an understatement.
Also, this trailer for a song "Trinity's Crying" on their new record, Grey Oceans, does not help in the least.
However, I find it tough not to be intrigued by their freakiest of freak folk; La Maison De Mon Reve and Noah's Ark were mainstays before I had nosey roommates (Leave me alone, MOM), and I would not be at all disappointed if the sisters were booked to perform within my nightmares.
Tomorrow, as you know, is Record Store Day, and amongst a trove of limited-edition Sub Pop releases is a CocoRosie seven-inch containing the song "Lemonade" (which can be heard below) and a cover of the Beach Boys' song "Surfer Girl," (which I need to hear... now.)
Grey Oceans is out on Sub Pop May 11th, and you can catch the girls (I think they're still girls, anyways) at the Wonder Ballroom on June 26th.
