Album Review

None of them are Brazilian, only one is a girl, and they jump around genres like a schizophrenic DJ, but all the obtuseness is just window dressing when you consider the groove and smart, playful attitude that hold the Brazilian Girls' debut together. Bouncing between house music, samba-flavored pop, and freaky dancing stoner anthems all seems rather effortless in the able hands of the the Brazilian Girls, three guys and one gal who are totally Nublu. If you don't know Nublu, it's a club in New York City that seems to dig up one musician/DJ after another who could be equally at home in the pages of Vogue or the Wire. The Brazilian Girls walk with much more of a smirk than their Nublu brothers, Wax Poetic, but they share a common bond: skillful execution of delicious and sultry vibes. If it's not the feet moving, it's the head bobbing, with everything from Air-like dreaminess ("Lazy Lover") to '80s-styled references (the good ol' Linn drum machine used for "Long") calling out for body response. The "drink some tea/smoke some herb" highlight "Don't Stop" should make everyone from Little Louie Vega to Gilles Peterson happy, while Marlene Dietrich pines from above that she didn't get a crack at the wistful "Ships in the Night." Even when she's not borrowing from Pablo Neruda, Sabina Sciubba is a stunning lyricist, poetically vivid one moment and flippantly dropping pop-culture references the next. Her voice is beautiful while her delivery is sometimes triumphant, sometimes homey/lazy, and always suggestive. The only bummer for those who devour anything from the house of Nublu is that the band's debut EP is repeated here, minus the remixes, but its three tracks work better here, surrounded by deeper grooves and the more wandering numbers. Superb, fun, sexy, and highly recommended.

Sounds great! Buy it!

I heard these guys being interviewed on NPR on the way home from work and immediately looked them up on the iTMS. They had just released an EP (all of those songs are on this release) on the store and I bought it. I really enjoyed every one of the songs and I would recommend them to anyone that likes quirky, off-beat, techno/electronica. Enjoy.

Recommended Electronic

....This album is interesting for several reasons. To begin with, although it is defined as electronic music, at many times there is little or no evidence of this, and when there is, it is unobtrusive rather than dominating. I personally love electronic music, as long as it isn't boring or cold (read techno), and downbeat, but this is a refreshing change of pace. I might say it's more extroverted or acessable than many electronic groups and cds. I would definitely recommend this album. I would also recommend trying to get ahold of a copy of the new swedish group Lo Fi FNK's new album Boy Life, if you're looking for cool new electronic music. ....For those of you still reading, some further suggestions would be: 1. Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass, a remix album called Whipped Cream and Other Delights Re-Whipped. 2. Deep Dish, George is On. 3. Fischerspooner (this group is SIIIICKKK - any song of theirs, emerge is probably their best known single). 4. Lemon Jelly. 5. LCD Soundsystem. 6. MSTRKRFT. 7. Modeselektor. 8. Ratatat (this band is UNFREAKINBELIEVABLE - no joke, check them out, and prepare to have your perception of music changed - call it electronic rock). 9. Royksopp, Melody AM (some good down tempo electronica). 10. Telepopmusik. 11. Tosca (these last two are pretty good, not amazing). 11. Werdna + Toille, Big 'ol Spliff (probably the single greatest electronic masterpiece ever created).

Biography

Formed: NY

Genre: Electronic

Years Active: '00s

Their music incorporates bits of reggae, electronica, jazz, bossa nova, and you name it, and despite their name, no one in the band is Brazilian. The sexy/quirky/mysterious Brazilian Girls are three men — Didi Gutman on keyboards and computers, Jesse Murphy on bass, and Aaron Johnston on drums — and one woman, Sabina Sciubba, the vocalist who often enjoys wearing lacy eye masks on-stage and sings in no less than five different languages. Sciubba was born in Rome but grew up in Nice and...
