Brazilian Girls Brazilian Girls
- Words: Ken Micallef
- Label: Verve
A four-piece transcontinental band from Manhattan, Brazilian Girls references not only Brazil, but model-flaunting catwalks, fashionable Parisian shopping districts, German burlesque houses and deep down and dirty Copacabana sex shows. Theirs is generous, multi-faceted pop music that recalls the brainy zeitgeist of Talking Heads and UK trip-hop filtered through lush vocals and garish instrumentation. "Corner Store" dances on hazy brass and a funky New Orleans groove; "Pussy" drips with ska humidity and city smarts; "Lazy Lover" sounds like The Orb cooling it with Debussy. Ute Lemper eat your heart out.
