CocoRosie: As charming as ever.

The loft used to belong to Bianca, and it is still filled with her art work, including a photograph of a brown dildo encased in purple quartz. (“I’m interested in exploring black-male sexual stereotypes,” she said, laconically.)

this is self-parody at this point

I Am Curious (Dolezal) (DJP), Monday, 19 October 2015 13:09 (four years ago) link

haha it's like she's seen the classic nabisco post
Why does Europe love CocoRosie so much?

some dude, Monday, 19 October 2015 13:23 (four years ago) link

"Bianca, who had concluded that the ancestry of her and her sister is part Cherokee, “but more Syrian than anything else,” said that she was going to wing it. “I really like to surprise myself.” "

of COURSE she is Cherokee

akm, Monday, 19 October 2015 13:47 (four years ago) link

“The Camargue’s a landscape with just the right amount of darkness and death,” Bianca said. “Pale-wheat land and gray skies, the migration of storks in December, this Gypsy fête where they take the black Madonna into the sea. But it’s also harsh and ugly, trashed with lying-around junk. I’m in love with West Texas, and this part of France is completely Texan, ancient cowboys with leathery skin and light-blue eyes.” She went on, “We’ve started this thing called white-trash Sundays, where we burn wooden palettes, have our way with tractors. At night, the baby screech owls scream for food—it’s the most demonic sound I’ve ever heard.”

“We record in our courtyard at dusk,” Sierra added. “The birds are leaking into every song.”

seriously why is Cherokee the default tribe that white people claim is in their blood

scott seward, Monday, 19 October 2015 15:01 (four years ago) link

i'm trying to think of the worst-case scenario with these guys. maybe starring in a netflix mini-series about the antebellum south that is directed by miranda july. that oughta do it.

i only read about them here though. who is their audience in 2015? french people?

scott seward, Monday, 19 October 2015 15:03 (four years ago) link

Was at a gig over the weekend - one of the acts was 'rejected and unheard of in his home country (UK) but had gained popularity in France'

this monstrous red flag did not dissuade me from hearing his set, which was some self-indulgent misogynist loathsome ageing-singer-songwriter flathat-wearing bullshit of the most irksome order

twunty fifteen (imago), Monday, 19 October 2015 15:07 (four years ago) link

I liked their first record, or maybe it was the second one. It had some charm. but they personally sound like loathsome narcissistic art school people with little to no actual experience with actual human beings.

akm, Monday, 19 October 2015 22:48 (four years ago) link

of COURSE she is Cherokee

every southern white person claims cherokee ancestry, it's a thing (science proves most of 'em wrong btw)

wizzz! (amateurist), Tuesday, 20 October 2015 00:45 (four years ago) link

Most of what I've read from them in interviews seems so problematic and "provocative" in all the wrong ways that I remained surprised that I *do* really like about 4-5 songs on each album they release.

Michael F Gill, Tuesday, 20 October 2015 02:06 (four years ago) link

I like DJP's explanation, but not as much as I like Rock the Night.

My sister-in-law apparently did some kinda of ancestry.com family tree that supposedly uncovered native-american ancestry. NOT Cherokee; a lesser-known group of people who would have been more appropriate for the area. But I don't know how much stock to place in that website, ya know? My dad was a super-genealogist. Spent his weekends at the National Archives and perusing Mormon microfilm collections. I really hope that in his retirement he'll offer to do some work on my wife's side of the family, so that my kids don't run around spouting any awkward fairy tales about their heritage.

actually every southern person full stop; whites and blacks.

my paternal grandmother sent me a birthday card this year, and the first line of it was "i don't know if you know this, but my great-grandma was part cherokee indian." the message didn't even reference the fact that it was my birthday, actually

apparently even most actual cherokees don't have a lot of genetic markers common to native americans. make of that what you will.

budo jeru, Sunday, 6 October 2019 16:18 (eleven months ago) link

"i never understood this band"

their first album has always been pretty good. I've not actually paid attention to anything since.

akm, Sunday, 6 October 2019 16:29 (eleven months ago) link

three weeks pass...

Is it...possible that CocoRosie are unaware of the racial connotations of the term "shine"?

New album, new song/video.
