i came across the SÃO PAULO-based INDIE ROCK band CSS in the early 2000s when i was reading culture BRITISH magazines like DAZED AND CONFUSED and SLEAZENATION (remember that one?), both of whom were celebrating the rise of ELECTROCLASH and NO WAVE-inspired INDIE acts on both sides of the pond.
what i loved about CSS (who sadly haven't released any new material since 2013 in the wake of member changes) was their decidedly amateurish, carefree danceable sound that was both goofy and infectious. their music is just fun. and their front-woman LOVEFOXXX is joy personified.
definitely check them out.
