I first caught wind of Brazilian band Cansei de Ser Sexy (CSS) in 2006 after listening to their single, "Let's Make Love and Listen to Death From Above," off their self-titled debut. After hearing relatively little about the band I stumbled upon a new single that had been floating around the blogs entitled, "Hit Me Like a Rock." As per usual, Lovefoxxx's punky vocals grace the track over a keyboard driven beat, guitar breakdown and even features a cameo by Primal Scream's Bobby Gillespie. While undoubtedly not reggae, there is no denying its influence, and seems like a great summertime jam.
I'll finish by leaving you with another video of my favorite CSS song, "Let's Make Love and Listen to Death From Above," which only seems apropos.
Enjoy. Happy Music Monday!
