Brazilian Girls: Sabina Sciubba (vocals); Didi Gutman (keyboards, background vocals); Jesse Murphy (bass guitar, background vocals); Aaron Johnston (drums, background vocals).
TALK TO LA BOMB provides more of the breezy, postmodern international pop introduced on the Brazilian Girls' self-titled debut. Mixing in dance grooves, lounge, dub, Latin flavors, downtempo, jazz, trip-hop, and rock, the Brazilian Girls offer up a fizzy concoction that balances an organic live sound with electronica flourishes. Lead chanteuse Sabina Sciubba sings in five different languages, positioning the Brazilian Girls as the house band for the new global village. While not as startlingly fresh as their first disc, TALK TO LA BOMB finds this eclectic New York City-based combo in a pleasurable holding pattern.
