EDITORS’ NOTES

Sierra and Bianca Casady seemingly go out of their way to annoy the average listener. Yet, over the years, they’ve matured into an adventurous duo worth giving a second and third chance. The melodies still slip through your hands like so much beach sand and there are enough weird arrangements to make you wonder if they record their albums in a novelty shop. But allow yourself the chance to enjoy their weirdness and the songs unfold as haunting and playful. “Trinity’s Crying” sounds like something heard in the wind on a stormy night as you traipse up to the belfry. “Smokey Taboo” and “The Moon Asked the Crow” sound like what G-Funk hip-hop might sound like in the hands of art students or nature freaks. “Undertaker” wanders off in search of the words to match the music’s fairy dust. Stringed instruments saw their way back to Nico’s The Marble Index and the piano finally settles them into the song. “R.I.P. Burn Face,” despite its tough-talk title, is a gentle, swooning piece that leans on freaky folk to find its electronic groove. These sisters have much to teach us.
