CSS are back with a summer full of shows. They're playing with the Futureheads, MGMT, Black Kids and the Go! Team depending on dates.
Described in the past 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.
CSS'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.
They're also preparing a new release for this year, with the recent announcement via their web site that reads "so we’re on studio time now. Adriano has been insane. I mean, he was always insane, but now he’s like on top of his genius insanity and we’re putting together the pieces and it’s looking PRETTY FUCKING AMAZING.
we’re very happy and excited with new stuff. this year this year…"
