CocoRosie's newest Touch And Go effort, The Adventures Of Ghosthorse & Stillborn, will be available April 10, but we have a new track off the album for download below. We would try to describe their sound to those who are unfamiliar, but the description that came to our inbox says it all. Peep it after the download.
"Rainbow Warriors" MP3
This album is a departure from the obscured blur of stained glass reve to a more self-exploitive memoir. Parts are dreamy and parts are savage, but, as with an opera where death represents a secret heaven, the whole record feels like a black diamond in the snow. From her humble beginnings in the South of France, the saga sailed the Seven Seas all the way to that icy crack in the Earth's crust just outside of Reykjavik. Upon her return to her Parisian homeland, she shared a mystical rendezvous with beautiful sailors Pierre et Gilles, the album cover being the consequence of that affair. If Jean Genet was the muse that inspired Noah's Ark, the spirit guide for this album was Wee Willie Winkie. A pre-pubescent idol who never changes out of his bedtime clothes, Wee Willie Winkie runs through town, upstairs and downstairs in his nightgown, knocking on the window, crying through the lock "Are the children all in bed? It's past eight o'clock." He might have been an O.R.W. (original rainbowarrior).
