Noah's Ark

I wasn't sure if I'd like CocoRosie's new album Noah's Ark. I mean...I would have reason enough not to like it, wouldn't I? Well a friend of mine who is nothing short of obsessed with Antony and the Johnsons and she flew from Texas to Toronto to see Antony live and CocoRosie was opening. Well she fell in love with them and it made me reconsider them. I got the album, strange cover art and all, and gave it a few spins.
At first listen, it really reminds me of carnival music. Now being a veteran Fiery Furnaces fan, I can safely say I am quite fond of the carnival sound but this was different. CocoRosie is more like freak show music. This is a good thing. Just different. Anyway listen to a few tracks and you decide.
