Ratatat, Primal Scream's Bobby Gillespie Guest on CSS' New Album

(Girlie) CSS release their new full-length album, La Liberacion this week via V2/Cooperative Music USA/Downtown Records.

It features collaborations with Ratatat, Primal Scream's Bobby Gillespie, and Mike Garson (who played piano on David Bowie's "Aladdin Sane").

After wowing audiences earlier this year at Coachella and on their co-headlining tour with Sleigh Bells, the band will take their sweat and glittered fueled live show on the road for a full US tour in October.

On La Liberaciσn the Brazilian crew's core of party-starting dance pop, reggae, and punk, has expanded to include new sonic tricks and a wider range of lyrical themes. Lead singer Lovefoxxx has grown as a lyricist, maintaining a balance between odes to hedonism with some genuine introspection. For example, "City Grrrl" is significantly autobiographical.

She explains: "I revisited my teenage years while living in the suburbs of my hometown. I'd be on the floor of my bedroom making the most ridiculous clothes and glue fake colored hair or x-ray pictures on clothes. I'd be sporting goth make up at 8am and when I hit the streets people would curse me from their cars in the most aggressive way. [Calling me] 'drag queen', 'whore.' "The song captures the sentiment of feeling like a true outsider and yearning to escape to a big city to find fellow outcasts.
