“We didn’t come into the world to walk around. We came here to take you out.” Thus boasts (and toasts) Lovefoxxx, lead singer of Cansei de Ser Sexy (aka CSS), on “Yager Yoga” from their sophomore release Donkey. This is their first album released completely to the Subpop imprint, which joined with Warner Brothers to sponsor the domestic release of their self-titled debut in 2006.
The Sao Paulo-based CSS originally dropped Cansei de Ser Sexy on the edgy Brazilian label Trama, but the group quickly became a hit through the neo Internet-eats-music (r)evolution. Like many other electro dance bands, tech met tech as the SEXtuplet found a massive and ever-growing following through Myspace, Wikipedia and other online resources.
A saucy, jiggable and enticingly female-driven band, CSS continues the unexpectedly lengthy (and ever-broadening) electro-rock craze with Donkey, dishing out banging electro cuts with discernable, inticing lyrics.
Whatever with the clubs though. This is perfect for dancing all over the house in your underwear on a holiday when all your roommates are out of town. Or better yet, catch CSS live and in the great and gorgeous outdoors when they play Monolith Festival in Red Rocks, CO September 14th, and/or at the Treasure Island Music Festival in San Francisco September 20th.
