CocoRosie Gallows

I've never been a big fan of CocoRosie's music but they really nailed the creepy vibe with this great song and even greater video. It's not that I think they aren't a good band but I can only take that fragile, high pitched, warbly sound in very small doses. It's kinda like the voice of the guy in The Crash Test Dummies, it sounds really cool for a song or two but drops off into annoying territory pretty quickly. But I digress, the video has some classic creepy elements, Victorian dress, twins and bloody tears ranking high on the creep o meter. Bonus points for making me think they were topless for a moment.

Not much going on there but their official site is here.
You can get their new album Grey Oceans from the Sub Pop site.
