CSS Preview New LP ‘Planta’ With Dubby Heartbreak Cure ‘Hangover’
Follow-up to 2011's 'La Liberación' is out June 11
CSS, short for Cansei de Ser Sexy, haven’t wearied of expertly constructed, endearingly hook-filled electro-funk. The Brazilian group, whose full name translates to “tired of being sexy,” will release their new, Dave Sitek-produced album Planta on June 11. The first track from the follow-up to 2011’s La Liberación is “Hangover,” which uses spaciously dubby horns, fuzzed-out guitars, and bloopy synths to make the post-breakup blues sound as festive as a boozy weekend outing. “Let’s get happy, drinkin’ Bloody Mary,” CSS chirp. The upcoming record also happens to be CSS’ first since the departure of multi-instrumentalist Adriano Cintra. It’s ladies’ night, oh what a night.
