No, it not the world cup...

It's my new favorite song!
San Paulo been pumping out the new bands- CSS and Bonde De Role etc...
Manchester better wake the fuck up.

I don't know what the hell is going on with dance music now
and it doesn't really have a title that seems to stick yet.
But certainly MIA, Santogold, Rye Rye, and alot of bands coming out of South and Central
America are on top of it.
It's lo-fi kinda "electro dance punk"... or at least how I'd describe it.
You could call it "electro grime" to I guess.
Fuck I wish I knew what to call it- cause it's been going on for several YEARS now.
And is the Mighty AwesomeSauce incarnate
Listen to this shit and weep in joy-


Rio Rio pointed out that "Aqui para vocês" literally means 'here's to you' but what it really means is 'I'm flicking you off', it's what you say before you flip the bird.
(Also here's too hoping Jon and Hieu change the music up in LXD)

Cansei De Ser Sexy (CSS)
Took their name from Beyonce' stupidly saying to the brazilian press "I'm tired of being sexy"
but on a great show too- okay, you should be listening already... click bellow...

CSS: Let's make love and listen to Death from Above

CSS: Alala
awesome backwards punk anger prom party!

Bonde Do Role
actually friends with CSS and tour together...
similar sound a little more discordent and sample heavy.

Bonde Do Role: Solta O Frango
how can you not like a human chicken fight?

Bonde Do Role :Office Boy
only for the hardcore fans of the genre'

Bonde Do Role : Marina Gasolina
The song is classic the video is not.
but fuck it you can't not dance to it.

Brazil + 6
(and next week I'll put some more of the Santogold and MIA up- cause it's long overdue )
