CocoRosie

Found this band called CocoRosie described as indie-folk-tronic which is a bizarre description. It somewhat sounds like a tripped out lo-fi Billie Holiday. Cannot describe it any other way. Recorded in a Paris flat last year by two sisters Sierra and Bianca Casady, CocoRosie combines folk, jazz and blue in a sometimes soaring and sometimes disturbing way. With bizarre beats, strange samples, and relaxed guitar riffs, I think that this is very much the stuff that people will either really love or absolutely hate. I highly recommend Good Friday, By Your Side, Terrible Angels and Butterscotch.

RadioK was playing stuff by CocoRosie last year, particularly By Your Side. The phrase "tripped out lo-fi Billie Holiday" nails the description of their sound! It's good, if not quite my bag, personally.
