Quote by:
Will Oldham

“As soon as it becomes your profession to critique a book, or movie, or record then, not only do you lose your passion for it, but it loses validity for whoever you’re trying to turn it onto because they’re going to be approaching it from a consumer’s point of view, not from a professional writer’s point of view.”

CocoRosie: The Adventures of Ghosthorse & Stillborn

Image Hosted by

Readers of the P&S will remember the love affair we have with CocoRosie and their siren songs. Well on April 10th we will be knighted with their third installment, The Adventures of Ghosthorse & Stillborn. An eerie title with an absolutely ghostly cover full of rich symbolism, and with the direction the Metallic Falcons took us on last year, this isn't that much of a surprise.

I've heard a few of the tracks off the new album and while I was blown away on all accounts, there has been a transformation in our ladies. Gone are the purely abstract coos and seductions with every breath and in their place a more beat influence of rhyme and reason. A new chapter if you will, and a welcomed change if you ask me. While I love the soft and twisted calls of their prior releases, something here sounds refreshed and reborn in the death of night. I think you have to do that, you grow, you mutate, you adapt, not only to survive in the land of music, but to survive as an artist.

Touch and Go says, "This album is a departure from the obscured blur of stained glass rêve 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"

While I am listing Rainbowarriors as the track below, I will say that it is not the best track on the album, but I'll let you decide for yourself on April 10th. In their words...

"Rainbowarriors live by the hero myth; Rainbowarriors ain’t nothin’ to fuck with.”

    "While I am listing Rainbowarriors as the track below, I will say that it is not the best track on the album..."

    I too was listening to Rainbowarriors looking to download album art for this song and came accross your site. If you are infact correct in your quote above, then I can't wait to hear the rest of the album.
