The Observer reviews the new Devendra Banhart and CocoRosie albums.

Excursions into found sounds and alternative instrumentation are never far away - particularly in the case of CocoRosie, who boast a classically trained singer and instinctive musician in their ranks. Lest anyone believe this music is a bit too freaky for widespread consumption, however, one of Banhart's jauntier moments is currently soundtracking adverts for Cathedral cheddar.


CocoRosie was Spin's "band of the day" Thursday.

The Casady sisters create a cross-cultural experiment (Parisian and American) in genre dipping (blues and experimental hip-hop) that, at first, sounds completely batty and sort of irritating, but, after a while, it creeps into your heart and becomes by turns haunting and entertaining.


Readers of the Salt Lake Tribune offer advice on how the paper should cover the city's film scene.
