CocoRosie - Japan

CocoRosie starts this tune with a jack-in-box-esque melody and infuses it into a march that leads me on a journey like the pied piper. Their song, Japan, pulls sounds from a variety of different places and blends them together and it's this combination that seems to take parts of the world and parts of life and bridges them together into something mesmerizing.

It's lowbrow, it's highbrow, and at first it's a juxtapozition of the two, and then it's very distinctly a marriage between them. The variety of mood, tones, and instruments working in harmony makes me think "Yeah, okay, this could all work out."
