COCOROSIE

2003年,Casady姐妹Bianca“Coco”和Sierra“Rosie”组成了CocoRosie,虽然她们从小在美国长大,但CocoRosie却是在她们彼此相隔多年后在巴黎重逢时组建的。她们的音乐被称为是“异类民谣”,融合了流行,布鲁斯,歌剧,电子和嘻哈等各种音乐元素。

CocoRosie二人组中的Sierra负责吉他、钢琴、竖琴部分,Bianca负责和声,并运用各种玩具、电子和打击乐器,以及其他异域色彩的采样声效加入她们的音乐。她们在之后也经常请来一些贝司手,合成器手和beatbox音乐人来丰富她们的现场演出。CocoRosie一直活跃于各种巡演,足迹遍布欧洲,美国等各个国家。她们曾经发行过的专辑有:《La maison de mon rêve》(2004)、《Noah's Ark》(2005)、《The Adventures of Ghosthorse and Stillborn》(2007)、以及《Grey Oceans》(2010)。

 

乐队背景
Sierra Casady出生在在爱荷华,而Bianca则出生在夏威夷。在Sierra 5岁、Bianca 3岁的时候,她们的父母就分居了。姐妹们和母亲住在一起。母亲Christina Chalmers是位在爱荷华成长起来的歌手和艺术家。几乎每年她们都要搬到新的地方居住,从夏威夷、加利福尼亚、到新墨西哥州、亚利桑那州,都有姊妹俩成长的痕迹。姐妹俩都没有完成高中的学业,因为她们的母亲认为孩子们在现实世界中能学到的东西远远比在学校里多。Chalmers给她的孩子们起了Rosie和Coco的小名,这也是CocoRosie乐队名字的由来。

Casady姐妹和父亲很疏远,她们的父亲是一位热衷于美国印第安人宗教的农民。还是孩子的姊妹俩曾和当时在为印第安文化工作的他度过了几个夏天。尽管那时候她们并不享受和父亲在一起的时光,但当年纪渐长则慢慢地理解了父亲热衷的兴趣爱好。

1998年,18岁的Sierra搬到了纽约居住。两年后,她搬到了法国巴黎蒙马特区的一所小公寓,在那开始了歌剧歌手以及巴黎音乐学院的学习生涯。在这段时期,Sierra和住在纽约的Bianca失去了联系。Bianca则在学习语言学和社会学,并开始了她对视觉艺术以及写作的追求。她热衷收集各种纹身,经常参加布鲁克林的”Kill Whitey”嬉皮士音乐派对并小有名气。

 

首张专辑
在2003年,Bianca想为寻求新的突破而跃跃欲试。她离开了在布鲁克林的寓所周游世界。她出乎意料地出现在了Sierra巴黎的住所。在之后的两个星期里,姐妹们几乎天天呆在Sierra的浴室里——被她们选择为最适合做音乐的隔离室。很快,她们完成了第一张专辑《La maison de mon rêve》(我梦想的家)。

原本,《La maison de mon rêve》只是打算在朋友圈内传播。但在2004年,Indie厂牌Touch and Go发行了这张lo-fi专辑,并一反常态地签约了CocoRosie, 从这张专辑诞生之后,Casady姐妹俩就不曾分开。

 

后续制作
CocoRosie在2005年发行了第二张专辑《Noah's Ark》(诺亚方舟)。专辑中她们与Antony Hegarty、Devendra Banhart、还有法国说唱乐手Spleen一起合作。姐妹们边旅行边创作这张专辑。专辑的封面出自Bianca之手,上面画着三头正在做爱的独角兽,最下面一头还在呕吐,被卫报和Pitchfork评为有史以来最烂的专辑封面之一。

Bianca在2007年开始现场表演。2006年的时候Sierra和朋友Matteah Baim发展了副业“Metallic Falcons”,签署在Bianca和合作伙伴Melissa Shimkovitz新创建的厂牌Voodoo Eros旗下。与此同时Bianca也在纽约开办了Voodoo Eros Museum Of Nice Items,提供艺术画廊的展示空间,最近一次开展了Bianca个人艺术Red Bone Slim VS. Itself的绘品展出。

CocoRosie的第三张录音室专辑《The Adventures of Ghosthorse and Stillborn》(鬼马与死胎的历险)在2007年的4月10日正式发行。这张专辑是由Björk的长期合作人Valgeir Sigurðsson负责制作的。歌曲主题是关于Casady姐妹的家庭以及早逝的兄弟,在她们母亲位于法国卡马格地区的农场里录制。专辑封面中的Bianca分饰两角,女扮男装和Sierra一起由Pierre et Gilles拍摄完成。在2008年和AfterEllen.com的一次采访中,Bianca觉得很惊讶,尽管她经常女扮男装进行表演,但仍有这么多人都不知道她是同性恋。

在2007年的五月,CocoRosie在为专辑《The Adventures of Ghosthorse and Stillborn》做巡演的时候卷入了一场纠纷,导致了之后其余的北美站巡演全部取消。没有官方作出解释,传言说有乐队的成员在穿越美国和加拿大边境的时候被逮捕并驱逐出境。

2008年的5月13日,CocoRosie发行了一张新单曲《God Has a Voice, She Speaks Through Me》(上帝的声音,她通过我来说话)。这首歌以数码唱片的形式和限定3000份的包含7张照片的单曲专辑发行。在后者的B-side中还保留着一首由噪音构成的短小没有名字的曲目。B-side胶片上有Hairnet Paradise的歌词,之前这首歌只在演出中表演过,而实际专辑里的这首歌也和表演过的很不一样。

2008年,CocoRosie花了大量时间创作以及在各地录制专辑。一年后,CocoRosie脱离厂牌Touch and Go并自行发行了名为《Coconuts》(椰子)的EP,《Plenty of Junk Food》这张EP也在CocoRosie 2009年6月3日的演出中特别发行。

2010年CocoRosie签约Sub Pop厂牌,她们的第四张专辑《Grey Oceans》(灰海)在2010年的5月11日发行。

SPECIAL GUEST: TIAN YUAN

 

After touring for the better part of 2007 on our last album, we were ready to create new songs. We had just finished a tour in South America, and we spontaneously set out to find the nearest analog studio and someone to twist the knobs. Through a mutual friend, we met Nicolas Kalwill, a Buenos Aires based studio engineer who has worked on 15 Argentinean gold and platinum albums. He suggested a world renowned, vintage studio in Buenos Aires called Panda, where we spent half of the dozen sessions that it took to make this record. Nico Kalwill is the engineer all artists dream of - very talented and always willing to patiently work with the total creative chaos in which our songwriting thrives.  We found such an intense chemistry together that we made a tradition of it.  After each major tour, we would all meet up and record in whichever studio we found closest to our last show.  That is how the story went until alas, we whittled it all down, like gnomes carving soap castles in prison, to our favorite musical adventures from this period.
   
Although we sensed potential during our recordings for "The Adventures of Ghost Horse and Stillborn", it wasn't until the sessions at Panda that our spritely new band member, Gael Rakotondrabe, became our kindred, musical spirit and creative partner in so many of the songs on this album.  A pianist from Reunion Island who grew up playing Creole music, Gael went to Paris to make his career in jazz.  His eclectic background has lent itself to such projects as:  writing and arranging classical works for the Royal Dutch Orchestra, winning the first prize at the Montreux solo piano competition, as well as collaborating with CocoRosie onstage and in the studio.  Gael’s willingness to try anything in the realm of sound has allowed for an explosive alchemy in collaborative song writing.   
   
The first session at Panda was amazing. We were bursting with music, too many ideas to document at one time. We stayed up for five nights straight and recorded almost seven songs.  Everything at that point was based on improvisation and experimenting with old analog gear.  The first song we recorded was "God Has A Voice, She Speaks Through Me", a dance song about suicide, spiritual ecstasy and life under the veil.  This tune was the beginning of a long and varied path eventually leading to the completion of our new album with little trace of the ocean disco from which we embarked. 
   
At our second session in Buenos Aires, we met Bolsa - a legendary rock drummer and drum doctor from Argentina with awesome hair. Bolsa happened to be next door tearing it up when we were working on the song "Hopscotch".  We had laid down the vocals and asked Bolsa to pump it up with some jungle style beats: "jungle" as in "drum and bass" from the early 90's. "Hopscotch” became our most playful and schizophrenic song on the record. 
     
Between our two vocal stylings we have pushed even further, our differences and played with this dualism to show an inner and outer world expression in the characters of our songs.
   
Outside of Buenos Aires, we also spent time recording in Paris, Berlin, New York, and Melbourne, but it was during a rare home recording that we wrote one of our favorite songs. We were searching through some old boxes from our mother's past and found a tape from the 70's that she had recorded herself.  The words were in Cherokee with an old, creaky folk sound.  We used her song with a stale native drum in our recording of "Pink Balloon of Time", which later transformed into "Undertaker".  With our mother's voice in the beginning and the end, “Undertaker” delves into a dreamy soundscape of bass clarinets and drones reminiscent of the film, "The Dark Crystal", and you will find lyrics of a medieval vernacular. 
   
After a year and a half of fairy toil, a couple of these new songs started to push their way into our live shows. We knew then that they were ripe and ready to be heard.  We reconvened with Nico one last time to mix them into our fourth album, Grey Oceans.
