CocoRosie's mythology is equal parts Victorian childhood and modern Gothic. The freak folk/trip hop duo are innocents who know about the dark side, but still believe in angels, fairies, God, St. Nicholas, rainbows, unicorns, Armageddon. The sisters' haunting, perverse lullabies tend to make lovers or haters of their listeners pretty quickly.
Plotwise, The Darkroom of Damocles is as riveting a detective story as I read all year, but its purpose is far beyond that of your average noir.
