It’s pretty clear which side of the Green Acres debate that Brazil’s CSS falls on in their latest video from La Liberacion (released August 23), which features collaborations with Ratatat, Primal Scream’s Bobby Gillespie, and studio key legend Mike Garson. CSS (short for “Cansei de Ser Sexy” – “I’ve grown tired of being sexy” in Portuguese) stirs the pot in a way that’s irresistibly danceable but doesn’t make you wanna suck a gun it’s so dumb like the majority of club ready fare the mainstream shovels out. And this band brings it in a huge, delightful way in concert – we once came back from a CSS show in SF with a hickey and seriously had NO idea where it came from or who left it. Their Tropicalia ancestors should be proud.
