Bonde Do Role Preps With Lasers
- Words: Jennifer Marston
With Lasers may mark the debut album for Bonde Do Role (The Role Crew), but this Brazilian trio–simply known as Pedro, Marina, and Gorky–is hardly a new outfit on the music circuit. Last year saw the band deliver a series of performances worldwide that had dancefloors exploding and crowds begging for more of the group's filthy mash-up of baile-funk rhythms, chugging basslines, heavy metal guitars, and hilarious lyrics about partying, fucking, going to the beach, and long lines at the post office.
Many refer this strange mix of pop-meets-metal-meets-the favela as "party music." ...Lasers renders this term an understatement, with Marina half-screaming, half-singing over the album's frantic beats and charging riffs. It's general chaos for the club or the headphones that starts fast and rarely lets up. An added bonus is the plethora of guest producers on the album, including Diplo, Egg Foo Young, DJ Chernobyl, and more. Partying just graduated from being fun to being a necessity.
With Lasers is out June 4, 2007 on Domino.
