…in a bathroom in paris we found ourselves. steamed up windows, infinite rainy days, the kettle’s constant hiss and the weary moan of a dying ambulance summoned songs from another time…

sierra and bianca cassidy of cocorosie are formerly estranged sisters that bonded over music. together they have created a delicate taste of folk and trip hop mixed within some strange sad darkness surviving through their own mysterious journey of drifting, conscious unfulfilled regrets, fantasies and memories.

in 2005, believer magazine issued a cd full of amazing covers by amazing artists. cocorosie gave their own spellbinding sound to the melancholy story-telling of damien jurado‘s ohio.

i ask where she’s headed she tells me,
“ohio, ive not seen my mother in ages
its been a long time, a real long time.”

About The Author

“One glimpse is all it takes to tell you that Music Is Art is something special. You can start by judging this blog by its cover—it’s one of the best-designed, most aesthetically aware music blogs around—but there’s much more to it than just a pretty template. For one, Danielle, the “dreamer/designer” behind MIA, focuses not only on excellent music, but on art, photography and writing and how they all intersect and inform the music. By sharing the sounds and sights that inspire her, she’s inspiring a growing number of readers on a daily basis. By documenting artists’ creative processes, she’s, in the process, creating a pretty substantial, always-evolving work of art herself.” - Nerd Litter
