Showing that they can play on the international jet set, Sub Pop Records have just signed Sau Paulo, Brazil's Cansei De Ser Sexy for 2 releases this summer. First, they'll drop a a full-on album on July 11th titled Cansei de Ser Sexy.
Described by Sub Pop as "a thick, pulsating thing full of haphazard synths, call-and-response baile party spooz rhythm, and hot, unbridled FUN TIMES sans postured snottiness," the band seems to be a handful of Brazilian good times and unpredictable directions.
Cansei De Ser Sexy's bouncy, danceable, and keyboard-based music is outside of the usual foray of Sub Pop's roster of indie-pop and experimental bands. They represent a sense of wild hedonism with their music, but in a loveable, pop-culture kind of way.
So is this a new trend for Sub Pop? Not so says the label. It's more of a one-off occurence. The band sent their demo to Sub Pop's main A&R rep, who liked it, and a signing followed. The album will be a rerelease of their South American release from last year, repackaged for the states with some additional tracks. Same but different see? There's also a 12" single in the works with some remixes due out after July.
Cansei De Ser Sexy is the Porteguese translation of a phrase once uttered by Beyonce Knowles. It means "I'm tired of being sexy." You know, we all are sometimes. A further evolution of that became CSS, because it's easier to say. Same but different, see?
