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?
If you have heard Don't Stop, you are only at the beginning. In fact, Don't Stop with its funky electronic beats and naughty lyrics is almost as uncharacteristic of this self-titled debut as it can be. You will be bowled over by the breezy lounge of All We Have, Ships In The Night and Me Gustas Cuando Callas or the incessant funk of Pussy and Die Gedanken Sind Frei (Thoughts Are Free).
As for me, this is one CDthat I have been playing from start to end as if it's a daily ritual for me. Best of 2005, definitely.
The album starts out with a familiar track, "Homme", which any of you who own the Wax Poetic album Nublu Sessions will immediately recognize. It then goes into one of my personal favorite tracks off the album, "Don't Stop". It's a nice mid-tempo dance-y number, yet feels very mellow and laid back. The vocals have a nice hazy, languid, spoken quality that pulls you in and under their spell. This is pretty much true of the vocals provided on the album by Sabina Sciubba throughout.
Other standout tracks imo include "Lazy Lover", "Pussy" (with it's giggle-inducing chorus of "pussy, pussy, pussy, marijuana"), "Dance Till the Morning", "Me Gustas Cuando Callas", and "Ships In the Night". There were a few tracks that didn't do a whole lot for me, but even those were completely listenable. Great for a lazy weekend or for that funky little dinner party, as long as your guests aren't easily offended by what I would call somewhat progressive lyrics on a few of the tracks. This is nice stuff, give it a listen.

Quirky and creative. Even their poppiest songs veer off into odd places. More trip hoppy than their later albums.
Good herb imbibing soundtrack.
Different, again I thought it was something more but not sorry I ordered it, I do like the music to move by.Published on March 7, 2014 by Betty Blue Eyes

Listening to Sabina Sciubba sing makes me happy. The Brazilian Girls's is the essence of fun. Sciubba's uses her sexy voice like an Impressionist painter. Read morePublished on December 30, 2009 by silhouette_of_enchantment
