Since sisters Bianca and Sierra Casady formed CocoRosie in 2003, they’ve insisted on offering a little bit of everything for listeners—like, everything everything. Their 2004 debut, La Maison de Mon Rêve, is notable both for its music critic-bungling mishmash of genres and its incorporation of sounds from household objects and children’s toys. Though their process has become increasingly refined throughout subsequent recordings, the Casadys have stayed true to their brand of double-jointed bohemian pop. On last year’s Heartache City, Sierra waxes pastoral, her exquisite voice lamenting a misunderstood tractor on “Big and Black.” Her sparse accompaniment is a fingerpicked lullaby guitar part, meandering trumpet, and soft, arrhythmic taps and rattles. The affect is undoubtedly calculated, but seems to come from someplace sincere and tends toward the spellbindingly dreamy. SAM BOVARNICK
