Gig Preview: CocoRosie at Webster Hall, Oct 12

Once-estranged sisters  Bianca and Sierra Casady, nicknamed Coco and Rosie by their mother, respectively, are back on the road to promote another rich, experimental and genre-bending record.

I remember first coming across their music in my first year of university at Sussex, when one of my friends who found out I listened to Joanna Newsom aptly recommended them. CocoRosie borrow heavily from the likes of Bjork, Newsom and the sort of earnestness you'd expect to hear from relatively unknown folk artists playing an open mic at your local bar. 

Since releasing their fifth album, Tales of a GrassWidow, in May they've played a series of shows in Europe and a sold-out set in Brooklyn at the Paper Box. They're back this month, due to play Webster Hall on Saturday, October 12. Click here (autoplay warning) to watch a show they played in Paris, debuting a lot of new material from this latest record for the first time, for a taste of what may be in store. If the record itself gives any indication, the show should be emotive, fairly intense and maximalist.
