Hi everyone   
  Not sure if this band has already been mentioned on this list but I saw them on the Rough Trade website and thought they would be of interest to some of you.
  CSS "cansei de ser sexy"  from sao paulo, brazil comes css (5 women and one man), the first south american band sub pop has foisted upon the global marketplace. 'cansei de ser sexy', portuguese for tired of being sexy, is improbably, unbelievably and nearly eponymously their debut. it is a thick, pulsating thing full of haphazard synths ('alala') and a come-on of call and response that tears down any attempt at posturing ('art bitch', 'patins'). it's a sexy mix of esg, the early rough trade label releases, bush tetras, kraftwerk, peaches, 99 records and the breeders. it's energetic, has buckets of attitude and sits heads and shoulders above the competition.   
  Alex
