Today’s Free Download – Cansei de Ser Sexy

canseidesursexy.jpgWhat better lead-in to a long weekend than this frothty, synth-soaked fun, mindless romp from this Sao Paolo-based Brazilian technopop combo. They remind me of Dee-Lite or fisherspooner, but with goofier lyrics:

You’re so talented I’m in love/Lets make love and listen death from above/I’m back with a smack and I’m ready to attack/Stare at my lips and see they are wet/I know how you doing by looking at your pants/And this is how we call it a comeback…

The track combines an dance-trance music bed with a ‘shroom infested lovesick lullabye singsong, inspired it appears by a bout of listening to the smash and crash antics of the now sadly defunct Death From Above 1979.

For the download, I’ve provided a link to their page at Sub Pop Records because it includes not only an MP3 of “Let’s Make Love and Listen to Death From Above” but also a stream of the irrationally exhuberant video.

The band is currently on tour with Ladytron; they land at Boston’s Avalon September 30.
