Performer Notes
  • Brazilian Girls: Sabina Sciubba (vocals); Didi Gutman (guitar, keyboards, background vocals); Aaron Johnston (drums, background vocals).
  • Programmer: Didi Gutman.
  • On their third full-length, Brazilian Girls continue to refine the breezy, sexy vibe and eclectic fusion of styles that made their first two albums so enjoyable. The group recorded NEW YORK CITY as a trio (the bassist took a leave of absence) but their sound is as full as ever. There's lush lounge, burbling Tropicalia, campy cabaret, driving Afropop, and thumping house music among the various colors and textures (not to mention multiple languages). The lead off single "Good Time" is a sunny, bouncing romp that mixes new wave and electronica into a perfect singalong pop package. Then there's the equally energetic glam-disco dance-floor filler, "Losing Myself." But Brazilian Girls aren't only about bright, uptempo grooves. The Kurt Weill-inspired "Berlin," the dark, spooky "Strangeboy," and the pulsing "Internacional," which features vocals from Afropop icon Baaba Maal, make the funhouse ride of NEW YORK CITY even more strange and memorable. As wide-ranging and arty as they are totally listenable, Brazilian Girls prove again what it is to make deliciously well-blended music for our current global village.
Professional Reviews
Spin (p.112) - "[T]hese increasingly experimental Girls remain an appealingly peculiar party band."

CMJ - "It's clear by the first minute-mark of NEW YORK CITY just how delicate, brooding and downright imaginative The Brazilian Girls' brand of thoughtful electro has become."

Blender (Magazine) (p.76) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "NEW YORK CITY is a lounge-y pileup of bossa rhythms and Old World romantic ache, girded by slithery push-button funk throb -- at once refined and happily trashy."
