I can safely say CocoRosie is the only duet that bills itself as "freak folk, experimental hip-hopera." With sounds from electronic kids' toys, as well as real instruments, their music is melodic, haunting, and peculiar. The CocoRosie sisters grew up traveling throughout the US, never finishing high school, and going on "vision quests" with their father at Native American reservations. Their live shows have included a beatboxer in addition to an LSD explosion of background visuals, costumes, and interpretive dances. Their most recent album, Tales of a GrassWidow, incorporates experimental EDM and hiphop, rather than their established sound—two little girls who stumbled upon a recording machine in the nursery next to all of their toys. There's no denying their live show will be a spectacle. ROSE FINN
