CocoRosie arrested

via Pitchfork...

The sisters Casady can at times be just too self-consciously weird. A story in New York Magazine brings up an incident in which Sierra claimed that fairies gave her a haircut in her sleep. She later admitted that it was probably her sister Bianca who gave her the haircut. Cute, funny, but a little cloying. The same balance can be found in their music.

CocoRosie - Rainbowarriors

This, actually, is one of their more, for lack of a better word, "normal" songs. Their output is uneven, songs are either transcendent or completely annoying. But they're never boring, I'll say that for them. They're not afraid to take risks.

That is why, though it's no laughing matter, there's something kind of amusing about the fact that the band got arrested. To quote the statement on their MySpace page: "the band got arrested, thats all i can say." While that totally sucks, and they were forced to cancel their remaining North American tour dates (except for their May 19 appearance at the Winter Garden as part of the Word of Mouth festival) because of it, the incident — as it stands now — just seems par for the course for this group of loveable scamps.
