Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Brazilian Girls' self-titled album has a very broad appeal & at the same time makes an important contribution to the artpop-dance community. Fans of the band from that community include Bebel Gilberto, Me'shell Ndegeocello, Thievery Corporation, N'dea Davenport, Chocolate Genius, Citizen Cope, Mushroom from Massive Attack, DJ 'Little' Louie Vega, Los Amigos Invisibles, & DJ Nickodemus (to name a few).

Amazon.com

"Brazilian Girls" is a name designed to steer you to the "wrong" sites in a Web search, and the not-so-thinly-veiled innuendo (one chorus is "Pussy pussy pussy marijuana") doesn't help either. But the music the Brazilian Girls make is more seductive than salacious. And except for one member, they aren't girls. The one who is, Italian-born Sabina Sciubba, is a former jazz singer who has the hipper-than-thou chanteuse thing going: a cigarette dangling from her lips, a beret cocked sideways on her head, black-stockinged legs crossed suggestively... at least she sure sounds that way. Sciubba sits astride basslines that insinuate themselves like a sideways glance in a smoky bar, as a sensual mix of live drumming and gritty trip-hop lounge grooves skew to the side of late-night alcohol-clouded vision. The English, French, Spanish, and German-language lyrics and Weill/Brecht-meets-Baja Marimba Band horns only add to the delirious dislocation. With a sophisticated electronic palette, Brazilian Girls exude that hip retro-future sound that propelled Deee-Lite back in 1990. Hopefully they won't also be one-hit wonders. --John Diliberto

5.0 out of 5 stars Beyond great, beyond hip February 10, 2005
Format:Audio CD
If Sex and the City were still being made for HBO, the sounds of Brazilian Girls would no doubt provide the background for Carrie and Co. sipping cocktails in a hip Manhattan lounge. After all, the cosmopolitan mix of Bossa Nova, trip-hop, jazz, dance, and reggae grooves almost sounds too good to play in a room by yourself...this is party music that needs to be shared, and loudly. "Homme," "Lazy Lover," and "Corner Store" are all slick-but-not-too-slick retro-lounge fare, while "Don't Stop" and "Sirenes de la Fete" come to the party only to head straight for the dancefloor. Even the offputting title "Pu**y" leads you to the sunniest, catchiest of tracks that will no doubt be blaring over countless pool parties this summer. What seals the deal is the revelation that while they apparently have many musical influences, Brazilian Girls' ambrosia still sounds like virtually no one else on the current music scene. American mainstream radio will probably never be hip enough to spin something so unique, but a faithful cult following is surely beginning to form. If you ever need a definition of "cool," forget the dictionary and check this out instead.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Dangerous Fling July 20, 2005
Format:Audio CD
You are on a business trip in Europe. After the meeting, you head to a club and meet a woman too alluring to ignore. She's the dangerous type...long legs and exotic features, fluent in several languages with a free-floating intellect. The kind of woman with an insatiable sex drive ("Don't Stop," "Pussy"), who will run out at 3:00AM for ice cream only to get waylaid by street musicians ("Corner Market"), who comes back to give you life advice ("Long"), quote Pablo Neruda ("Me Gustas Cuando Callas"), and make you dance in your hotel room ("Dance Until the Morning Sun"). And then she'll be gone in the morning ("Ships in the Night").

The musical soundtrack to this affair: a little Electro and House, a little reggae, touches of Esquivel-like lounge, and the spices of Bahia and Rio. Stewed like a femme-fatale version of Soul Coughing, and a little like Howie B's "Suck It and See" imaginary porn. Lo'Jo's errant daughter.

Tasty, risky, unforgettable. How can you resist?

5.0 out of 5 stars Sexy music that pulls you in January 4, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Just had to say something about this CD, cos I'm totally blown away by the sound. Picked it up as a late Christmas gift to myself and couldn't be happier. Sciubba's voice is smooth, sexy and totally amazes me each time I listen to the album. 'DON'T STOP' is a winner and immediately caught my attention, cos everything about this song is incredible. The song remains on "repeat" in my discman when I travel on the subway. Sabina Sciubba sounds a lot like Nena (99 Luft Balloons) with her smokey pipes. I'd definitely play the album for customers at my bistro (if I had one). This is the stuff you want to listen to while having drinks with friends on any given spring or summer afternoon/evening.

The album is ballsy, fresh and bold. The band truly impress me more each time I listen to their music. Because of this, I bought everything in their discography. This album stands out in my music collection because I listen to it in "parts" rather than over-play it as a whole. There's a Euro feel to the CD, compared to "Talk to La Bomb". This album is a little lighter and more techno-oriented at times, as the follow-up "TTLB" is jazzier work. The album will really pump you into a music buzz if you listen to it on your Ipod or any portable apparatus using headphones.
'SHIPS IN THE NIGHT' is dreamy and laid-back, a perfect ending to a busy album, though not what I expected as a concluding track. As the songs are sung in four languages, it's a pleasure to my ears. Will definitely transfer the album to my minidisc player for fun, carefree summer listening. I guess I just described Brazilian Girls right there. They are fun and carefree.

Filled with interesting sounds, samples and solid bass and drum beat throughout, the CD will charm you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Damn! February 18, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Ok, so, picture the ultimate club/party/event that you want to be at. The one with the most attractive people, the best booze, and just a high level of overall excellence. This is the music that's playing at that party. Sorry, just had to get that off my chest...Brazilian Girls remind of a little bit of Portishead but more worldly and without the incessant depression. The term "Trip-hop" definitely springs to mind but there's more to this record than just that. I'm no expert, but I hear some reggae influence as well as other types of "World" music (for lack of a better term) that I can't pinpoint. The combination of live bass and drums and programmed beats result in tracks that are both sultry and fun and the laid back, breathy vocals are just beautiful and perfect. This band also posesses a toungue-in-cheek seductive quality and a sense of humor (see tracks "Pussy" and "Lazy Lover"). This cd makes me happy when I listen to it. If this band doesn't blow up huge than I don't know anything.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sexy, worldy and groovy. February 21, 2005
Format:Audio CD
There is no need to hit the skip or shuffle button on your player when listening to this perfect "lounge" album. Usually most c.d's have that one annoying song that just knocks the flow of an album out of rhythm. You know what I mean. "Brazilian Girls" has that unyielding groove that most legendary albums obtain. This album is very unique, almost too unique to compare it to other groups. I have yet to hear another band that can make bossa nova sound "edgy" without totally slaughtering it's integrity. It does have some Portishead like qualities, it's just not a fair comparisson. Brazilain Girls' sound is like if Ian Pooley and Esquivel had a child, weened by Poe, who grows up listening to Cafe Tacuba and Sublime in France. !!! I know... it's a crazy discription but the most apropriate in my opinion. Anyways, check it out. You won't be disappointed.
