Cansei De Ser Sexy - Let's Make Love And Listen Death From Above

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.


fucking awesome on all counts.

"yay, CSS!" on getting an album out.

"yay, us!" on 0x3e8 posts!

how do i buy this? my portugese is pretty rusty so i'm having trouble navigating did you buy your copy? please advise!

Posted by: elginagain at November 18, 2005 02:09 PM

I'd try one of the free page translators (Google lets you surf sites in translated text), or if that fails you can probably buy one from the band. Try e-mailing Lovefoxxx: lovefoxxx [a] lovefoxxx dot com

I removed the username from your comment, Alemao, because we feel that advertising that sort of thing here is seriously not cool with us. The whole point of this site is to give people just a taste of albums they might enjoy (with the blessing of the artists or labels involved over 99% of the time), so that they can buy them to support the artists that make them. Hopefully you've bought your copy that you're now sharing, but helping others steal it ain't the way to go.

Posted by: jp at November 23, 2005 12:19 PM

I understand your position, robots. Im giving my excuses for you and the others users from this site. But I have to say that Cansei de Ser Sexy and their label [Trama] support the sharing of music, because they consider thats not a "steal", its a way to turn the band and the music known. Trama also support the Creative Commons and you can download it in their site. But you want to buy CSS in US you can do it in iTunes Store. Thanks, Robots. I love this site.

Now I must agree with jp. If you consider the whole history of the band, you'll see that the only reason for its existence is the possibility that their fans had to share their songs.
In the begining they were just a bunch of non-sense chicks and a guy in the drums, making some noise, and they were glad to have us sharing there music with everyone. And that was the biggest atractive to their Label, "Trama Virtual".

I desagree, that's what I meant.

Posted by: Rafael Leite at December 7, 2005 11:44 AM

I forgot to say that I bought the album, I did not received it by mail for free.

Soulseek is the future of music!
I've just finished downlonding CSS and MUSIC FOR ROBOTS VOL 1 cds on it.

Thanks bitches!

And besides what Alemão and Rafael have said I'd like to add that the band supports downloading music off the internet and doesn't mind people downloading *their* music since along with the CD comes a CD-R on which you are encouraged to burn a copy of CSS's album to a friend. I do recommend buying the CD because the artwork is really cool, though.

Posted by: mariana at December 7, 2005 10:02 PM

That's all fine and well - what y'all do on your time and on other internet sites/services is up to you. However, MFR is here to promote artists and music for the purpose of discovery; we are not a soulseek discussion board. So please keep that in mind.

Posted by: jp at December 8, 2005 02:15 PM

Ok. Sorry, robots. I won't do it anymore. I undestrand your position. Keep doing this great site. I like it very much! Cheers.
