Cansei De Ser Sexy
Lately I've really been digging Cansei De Ser Sexy (CSS). They aren't new, people have been singing their praises in the blog world for a while now, but it took me a while to catch on to how awesome they are.
Imagine a Brazilian Le Tigre. But more rolling around and dressing crazy like Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs...plus an affinity for pop references and 80's fashion, and you will have an approximation of CSS. They're upbeat, pseudo-electronic/synth rock with themes that play off whatever makes them jam. Take some of their song titles like "Meeting Paris Hilton" and "Let's Make Love and Listen to Death From Above", referencing the indie band Death From Above 1979, as well as a take off of the Sleater-Kinney classic "I Wanna Be Your Joey Ramone" called "I Wanna Be Your J-Lo". I love that they're just having fun and don't take themselves too seriously...you don't get more rock 'n' roll than that if you ask me.
