'off the hook'

This was an afternoon showcase on the first day of CMJ 2006 curated by the popular Brooklyn Vegan blog site. The place was well jammed as it was CSS's only freely accessible club date during the week, and they played straight after Thunderbirds Are Now! Cansei de Ser Sexy, as you should know by now, are from São Paulo, Brazil, and the name, Portuguese for I Got Tired of Being Sexy, is a quote from Beyoncé Knowles. Feisty electro-pop dance punk. What surprised me, seeing them for the first time, was just how guitar oriented they are, with anything up to four guitars going at once. They rock out. Lovefoxxx is a great frontwoman, too. She never lets up, and dove into the crowd more than once. We have two songs here - 'Alala' which, rereleased the day after this show, is their new Sub Pop single - and the short set's finale, the popular 'Let's Make Love And Listen To Death From Above'.

Clicking the images will take you to the tunes on YouTube. The h.264's are iPod-ready. Yes there is a DVD.
