Once upon a time, there were two little girls named Coco and Rosie. Coco and Rosie had a big sister named Bjork, whom they loved very, very much. In fact, they loved her so much they wanted to be just like her. They loved to play dress up, finger paint, and create make believe sounds just like their big sister. "One day, when we are big and tall, just like our sister Bjork, we will make pretty sounds, too, and conquer the world, too" they said.

But then something sad happened.

Before Coco and Rosie were fully grown up, they started recording and releasing their make believe, made-up magical sounds. While they meant well, these sounds just weren't mature. In fact, they resembled the childish, ill-formed squiggly lines that a pre-schooler might draw. Coco and Rosie were so impatient to be just like their big sister Bjork that they ignored this fact.

And so, Coco and Rosie embarrassed their mother, their father, and most importantly, their beloved big sister Bjork by releasing a series of ill-advised, immature, self-indulgent, art-school dribblings into the world, bringing shame upon their family, and upon the entire freak-folk fairy genre.
