Cansei de Ser Sexy Ready Their Album For Release on Sub Pop Records


By: Spacelab Research Staff
The Brazilian revolution is starting... on July 11th. That's when Cansei de Ser Sexy (CSS) will release their new album on Sub Pop Records. The album will be a rerelease of their South American release from last year, repackaged for the states with some additional tracks. There's also a 12" single in the works with some remixes due out after July.

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.

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.
