SLOW TRAVEL BERLIN
CocoRosie, Huxley’s Neue Welt, 9pm
It has been 10 years since sisters Bianca “Coco” and Sierra “Rosie” Casady spent two months holed up in the bathroom of a Paris apartment working on a collection of recordings. But those songs, which were meant to be distributed among friends, were eventually released in the form of a debut album.
Fast-forward to today and the folk freak duo is celebrating the release of its fifth full-length, Tales of a Grass Widow, with a few dates around Europe.
As with past releases, haunting, intertwined melodies and childlike vocals are prominent on the new album, and the music is playful in its approach to notions of genre. Naturally, concert-goers should be prepared for an enchanting spectacle of magical realism and captivating musicianship. Natalye Childress
