Heartache City , Bianca and Sierra Casady’s sixth album as CocoRosie, intentionally upends the sonic trajectory the band appeared to be following. On ‘s Grey Oceans and ‘s Tales of a GrassWidow production grew increasingly layered and prismatic. On that record the sisters worked with minimal effects and in maximum seclusion.

If you really want to read this, try using The Internet Archive. The Casady sisters are back to divide opinion and elicit a wide range of facial expressions with their first album since ‘s Grey Oceans , Tales of a GrassWidow. Firstly, let’s address most critics’ main gripe with CocoRosie and talk about the vocals.
They’re odd and wildly changeable; one minute toddler, the next shrill belter, the next angelic chorister. And what that something is, from a listener’s perspective, is suspicion. Joanna Newsom’s vocals have lost and gained her admirers in equal measure, but there has never been any doubt that they’re sincere, and she was consistent and fascinating within them until her perhaps inevitable vocal issues and consequent softening.
She’s delightfully mad and it’s part of what makes her such a dynamic and fiercely exciting songwriter and live performer. But with CocoRosie, it comes across as too thought-out, placed, invented, and that can prevent the sisters from seeming like real people. They displace themselves from reality, and create too wide a gap between themselves, their creative process and output, and their audience.

Put the Shine On
CocoRosie is forever waiting for its moment to arrive. Over the years, CocoRosie slowly drifted away from their lo-fi roots and toward sounds that emphasize the sophistication of their songs. On Tales of a GrassWidow, Sierra and Bianca Casady polish away some of the more grating edges of their previous album, Grey Oceans, but these songs aren’t all sweetness and light: “After the Afterlife” begins the album with deceptive delicacy before synths take the track in a darker and more mysterious direction.
CocoRosie have long divided opinion — and, love them or loathe them, much of that opinion rests on what you think of their vocals.
