Bonde Do Role, ‘With Lasers’ (Domino)

Does “world music” make you drool — and not in the good way? Bonde Do Role feel your pain. This Brazilian trio’s debut laces lascivious lyrics through chassis-shaking rhythms, rubbing up against everyone from Bow Wow Wow (“Solta O Frango”) to Black Sabbath (“James Bonde”). “Geremia” adds riotously expert kazoo to the mix, but the disc’s secret weapon is ace guitar work: Eddie Van Halen-style hammering powers “Danca Do Zumbi,” while Johnny Ramone-like crunching ignites “Office Boy,” the best song ever about queuing up.
