take the foxxx to the luxx and make some bucks
FINALLY! After a week of checking my mailbox, I have the new CD from MFR favorites Cansei De Ser Sexy safely on repeat in the stereo. I posted two demo version of their songs a while back, and if you've seen any of the amazing art we've been lucky enough to have for our event posters and flyers you already know CSS member Lovefoxxx. And now, as of two weeks ago, the final version of the first CSS full length album (self-titled) is out [so buy it already!] on Trama Virtual records, which from what I can tell is a combination myspace-like MP3/band discovery portal and music label down southways in Brazil.
The album features final cuts of the demo songs that I'd posted here as well as versions of the other demos from the Tramavirtual site, but everything on the CD is tight as a drum - the tracks are totally dialed. There's some awesome bouncy dance tracks such as this song, gritty electro rock-outs (Meeting Paris Hilton, which apparently was played as the background music during South American Fox TV's commercials for the Simple Life, even though she's referred to only as "the Bitch!"), and slower synth-y pop jams. All in all, the album is a total winner, and I'm thrilled to finally get to listen to the whole thing (over and over...).
You can listen to snippets from all the tracks on the Trama release page, and [order the CD] while you're at it. If Portuguese makes sense to you, you can also watch a short interview with the band, though if you're on a Mac, Safari won't load it, and you'll need Firefoxxx...
On a related note, this post marks MFR's 1000th entry! A symbolic milestone, but it's an excuse to give our deepest love and thanks to the readers, artists, labels and everyone else out there who participates in making this site as awesome as it is. We hope to bring you all the quality you've come to expect and even more goods in the future. There might be some nostalgia posts that appear in the immediate future, but in the meantime if you want to read about how it all began: MFR's first post - a TMBG song, posted by Mark.
