I Don't Get the Tag "Freak Folk." But If That's What You Wanna Call CocoRosie, Sub Pop's Newest Band, Go For It

Freak Folk has just never seemed that freaky to me. It's not your father's folk music (though you bet your ass I'll be there for James Taylor/Carole King at KeyArena). I've never thought of "freak folk" artists like Devendra Banhart to put out very freaky music. CocoRosie mashes up folk with beat boxes and other electronic noisemakers to great effect, but I don't know if it's freaky. All labels aside, take a listen to the jet-setting duo Sub Pop snatched up recently. Quite the score. Sub Pop will release their next record, Grey Oceans, on May 11. Video after the jump.
