BRAZILIAN GIRLS

Talk to La Bomb

2006-09-23

Brazilian Girls' sophomore album "Talk To La Bomb" explodes with a booming fusion of electro, dub, pop, punk, and dance music to more edgy and elaborate arrangements. Front-woman Sabina Sciubba manages to alternate between five different languages-English, German, French, Italian, and Spanish-often all in one sentence. The band got together to record their second album in a New York City Studio and created most the songs out of an improvisatory, spontaneous mind set. A surprise to most would be the fact that the title track "Talk To The Bomb" was essentially a first take, with the drummer and bassist laying down a slippery foundation of cymbal hits, snare rolls, and bass fillips, while lead singer affects a stiff-upper-lip delivery atop their animated groove. Tracks to listen to are 1 "Jique," 2 "All About Us," 3 "Last Call," 8 "Talk to the Bomb," and 12 "Problem." Talk To La Bomb is sure to blow you away with its in-your-face intensity and sporatic dialect variations.
