Movie, Music, and Muse Monday: CocoRosie

Back with Monday muse! Feeling a lot better and have so many things i want to show that muse me very much!
But this week as a must i have picked the band CocoRosie since been spending long hours at night watching random videos about them.

Let us be reminded of how wonderful magic and childhood is.

Wiki tells us:
 CocoRosie is a musical group formed in 2003 by sisters Bianca "Coco" and Sierra "Rosie" Casady. The sisters were born and raised in the United States, but formed the band in Paris after meeting for the first time in years. Their music has been called "freak folk", and incorporates elements of pop, blues, opera, eletronicia, and hip hop.

Heres some facts!

* CocoRosie began as a duo, with Sierra singing, playing the guitar, piano and harp, and Bianca singing and manipulating various children's toys, electronic and percussion instruments, as well as other exotic noisemakers. They subsequently added various backing musicians, usually a bassist, keyboardist, and beatboxer.

*Sierra Casady was born in Iowa, and Bianca was born in Hawaii. When Sierra was about 5 years old and Bianca 3, their parents separated. The girls lived with their mother, Christina Chalmers, an artist and singer of American indian and syrian ancestry who grew up in Iowa. They moved to new towns almost every year, living in Hawaii, California, New Mexico, and Arizona.

*In 1998, at about age 18, Sierra moved to New York City. Two years later, she moved into a tiny apartment in the Montmartre district in Paris, France, to pursue a career as an opera singer, studying at the Conservatoire de Paris. During this period, Sierra lost contact with Bianca, who was living in New York City. Bianca studied linguistics and sociology, and pursued her passion of visual arts and writing.

*n 2003, Bianca was growing restless and decided it was time for a change. She left her apartment in Brooklyn to travel the world. Unexpectedly, she showed up at Sierra's apartment in Paris. Over the course of the next two months, the women spent nearly every waking hour in Sierra's bathroom, chosen as the most acoustic and isolated room in the apartment. Soon, they had completed their debut album La maison de mon rêve.

Cocorosie are such a mystery and i hope they always stay one so they will never loose the magic spells they put over me. Could listen to them in a quite old house with spider webs and taxidermied animals staring into the twilight. Or in a field or the side of a riverbank in the sunshine and flowers with tiny fishes hiding below me. They help my art a great deal and love for life very strong.

This is a documentary about them and other artists that are beautiful, watch if your an enternal child.
