For anyone who has not listened to or heard of No Kids, you are missing out. They’re a delightfully sweet band that manages to stay original in the vast sea of indie pop-pers, and are frequent touring mates of the Karl Blau/Mount Eerie family. The members are just as shy as their music would lead you to assume, but don’t underestimate them-their live shows make even the kid in the corner tap his feet.
CocoRosie - Lemonade by subpop
Click the arrow to download this track from the forthcoming CocoRosie album. Worth pointing out that the rest of Grey Oceans is somewhat more upbeat.
CocoRosie are two American-born sisters, Sierra and Bianca, who started making music together in Paris in 2003. Their first album, La Maison de Mon Rêve, was released in 2004 and their second album, Noah’s Ark, followed in 2005. Their third and, to now, most recent album, The Adventures of Ghosthorse and Stillborn, came out in 2007. All three of these albums were released worldwide on Touch and Go Records and earned positive critical acclaim both overseas and at home.
The nomadic duo (currently and temporarily residing in New Mexico) spent much of 2008 writing and recording in Buenos Aires, Melbourne, Berlin, New York, and Paris, finding amazing and diverse musicians to collaborate along the way. The result is their 11-song Sub Pop debut, Grey Oceans, due out May 11th, 2010.

I’m dying inside. I love this band. Their vocals are so profoundly evocative and appropriately interrupted by random sound effects that create the big, lovely picture that is CocoRosie.
The Box Tops and Big Star. That is all I have to say.
