Entertainment Reviews:

Rolling Stone - No. 967, p.81
3 stars out of 5 - "[T]he Girls refuse to groove in any one genre for too long, and their mix-and-match deep-dub aesthetics are so finessed that they leave their scent on every musical landscape they visit..."
Entertainment Weekly - No. 804/805, p.133
"[A] sensual swirl of dub, bossa nova grooves, booty-bumpin' house beats, down-and-dirty trip-hop, and even quaint Parisian cafe songs..." - Grade: B
Vibe - p.142
"Globetrotting never sounded so lucid."


Product Description:

Brazilian Girls: Sabina Sciubba (vocals); Didi Gutman (keyboards); Jesse Murphy (bass instrument); Aaron Johnston (drums).
In their irresistibly stylish self-titled debut, New York electro-pop quartet Brazilian Girls marries sexy, breathy French and English vocals with urban beats and a hip, sophisticated downtown sensibility. Neither Brazilian nor, with the exception of their sensual vocalist Sabina Sciubba, female, the band has a beguiling way with sinuous rhythms, dubby bass, and lounge-influenced arrangements. Sciubba's slyly insinuating lyrics nestle like a kitten into psychedelic swirls of keyboards and synth bleeps, particularly on "Don't Stop," which is packed with influences ranging from 1970s disco to Indian film music.
Conjuring memories of '90s disco dilettantes Deee-Lite in the alluring "Sirenes de la Fete," the Girls' unapologetically kitsch approach is a feast of smart, trippy, exotic electronica. Sciubba is obviously no stranger to the work of '60s French chanteuse Francois Hardy, continually evoking the Gallic songstress in her faux-naive vocal style. Within the reggae rhythms of "Pussy," the group's hymn to sex and drugs, the Girls mine a rich vein of Eurotrashy, elastic beats, rounding out a wonderfully fun, decadent album.
