5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By J. W. Reitsma on 28 Jun. 2005
Format: Audio CD
I had the good fortune to see this band live at the new location of the Amsterdam Bimhuis this weekend and my goodness they were something else! Think Bebel Gilberto, think Blondie, think Sugarcubes plus lyrics in five languages and you're getting at least some idea of what this band's all about. This is a band in rapid development. They mostly played songs from this excellent CD, but with doubled intensity. Still, if you turn up the volume you can start building your own summer party with them.
Needless to say, there is not a Brazilian to be found among the four members of this New York band. With her sexy, sultry vocals, multilingual singer and lyricist Sabina Sciubba (born in Rome, raised in Germany and France) brings back memories of Françoise Hardy, while her weirdly punning lyrics crack you up from time to time too. The three guys (one Argentinian, two Americans) are a hard-hitting outfit with tight base lines and ditto drumming and some very creative keyboard sounds and laptop samples and beats by Didi Gutman.
This is my summer disc for 2005, like Suba's Sao Paolo Confessions was for 2001. Listen to the samples and you'll hear what I mean. I certainly hope these guys - sorry, girls - will be back for a new tour next year and I am extremely curious what their next CD is going to be like. This record will be difficult to top, but as said, they are moving fast!

This really is a very cool record. Songs here are sung in about 5 different languages, are delivered sexily and ice cool by the female singer, and above all are very dancable. Comparisons can be made to alternative dance acts like Moloko and Goldfrapp, but you'll also find some Bebel Gilberto, Cibelle and even a little Blondie too. If you liked the debut by Smoke City you'll like this - a lot! Elements of house music, Bossa Nova and Reggae are all pulled together with free spirited jazz like arrangements. It's the sort of sound that you could imagine being played in the background at some cool New York party , but unlike a lot of this type of music, it sits in the foreground very nicely too.

sexy, cosmopolitan, intelligent and cool without being pretentious. The Brazilian girls have to be one of the most talented set of musicians to emerge from New York for a while. thier mix of dance, jazz, electronica and world flavours is accessable to all.

I love Sabina, but ths album is a very poor record indeed. The bad quality work by the engineers let down the artist, with tracks just not suiting her style and not allowing her to shine. A definate miss

Beyond great, beyond hip 10 Feb. 2005
By John Jones - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
If Sex and the City were still being made for HBO, the sounds of Brazilian Girls would no doubt provide the background for Carrie and Co. sipping cocktails in a hip Manhattan lounge. After all, the cosmopolitan mix of Bossa Nova, trip-hop, jazz, dance, and reggae grooves almost sounds too good to play in a room by yourself...this is party music that needs to be shared, and loudly. "Homme," "Lazy Lover," and "Corner Store" are all slick-but-not-too-slick retro-lounge fare, while "Don't Stop" and "Sirenes de la Fete" come to the party only to head straight for the dancefloor. Even the offputting title "Pu**y" leads you to the sunniest, catchiest of tracks that will no doubt be blaring over countless pool parties this summer. What seals the deal is the revelation that while they apparently have many musical influences, Brazilian Girls' ambrosia still sounds like virtually no one else on the current music scene. American mainstream radio will probably never be hip enough to spin something so unique, but a faithful cult following is surely beginning to form. If you ever need a definition of "cool," forget the dictionary and check this out instead.

A Dangerous Fling 20 July 2005
By S. L. Winant - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
You are on a business trip in Europe. After the meeting, you head to a club and meet a woman too alluring to ignore. She's the dangerous type...long legs and exotic features, fluent in several languages with a free-floating intellect. The kind of woman with an insatiable sex drive ("Don't Stop," "Pussy"), who will run out at 3:00AM for ice cream only to get waylaid by street musicians ("Corner Market"), who comes back to give you life advice ("Long"), quote Pablo Neruda ("Me Gustas Cuando Callas"), and make you dance in your hotel room ("Dance Until the Morning Sun"). And then she'll be gone in the morning ("Ships in the Night").

The musical soundtrack to this affair: a little Electro and House, a little reggae, touches of Esquivel-like lounge, and the spices of Bahia and Rio. Stewed like a femme-fatale version of Soul Coughing, and a little like Howie B's "Suck It and See" imaginary porn. Lo'Jo's errant daughter.

Tasty, risky, unforgettable. How can you resist?

Damn! 18 Feb. 2005
By Taleatia Vincent-Clark - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Ok, so, picture the ultimate club/party/event that you want to be at. The one with the most attractive people, the best booze, and just a high level of overall excellence. This is the music that's playing at that party. Sorry, just had to get that off my chest...Brazilian Girls remind of a little bit of Portishead but more worldly and without the incessant depression. The term "Trip-hop" definitely springs to mind but there's more to this record than just that. I'm no expert, but I hear some reggae influence as well as other types of "World" music (for lack of a better term) that I can't pinpoint. The combination of live bass and drums and programmed beats result in tracks that are both sultry and fun and the laid back, breathy vocals are just beautiful and perfect. This band also posesses a toungue-in-cheek seductive quality and a sense of humor (see tracks "Pussy" and "Lazy Lover"). This cd makes me happy when I listen to it. If this band doesn't blow up huge than I don't know anything.

Sexy, worldy and groovy. 22 Feb. 2005
By Chibi-Cub - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
There is no need to hit the skip or shuffle button on your player when listening to this perfect "lounge" album. Usually most c.d's have that one annoying song that just knocks the flow of an album out of rhythm. You know what I mean. "Brazilian Girls" has that unyielding groove that most legendary albums obtain. This album is very unique, almost too unique to compare it to other groups. I have yet to hear another band that can make bossa nova sound "edgy" without totally slaughtering it's integrity. It does have some Portishead like qualities, it's just not a fair comparisson. Brazilain Girls' sound is like if Ian Pooley and Esquivel had a child, weened by Poe, who grows up listening to Cafe Tacuba and Sublime in France. !!! I know... it's a crazy discription but the most apropriate in my opinion. Anyways, check it out. You won't be disappointed.

Color Girls! 30 Jun. 2005
By Dogville - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Whatever your mood may be at any moment, put this CD on and you'll find yourself that much happier than before. Brazilian Girls, a tongue in cheek name for a band, revels in funk, dance, electronic and lounge music, gliding through from one genre to another effortlessly.

If you have heard Don't Stop, you are only at the beginning. In fact, Don't Stop with its funky electronic beats and naughty lyrics is almost as uncharacteristic of this self-titled debut as it can be. You will be bowled over by the breezy lounge of All We Have, Ships In The Night and Me Gustas Cuando Callas or the incessant funk of Pussy and Die Gedanken Sind Frei (Thoughts Are Free).

As for me, this is one CDthat I have been playing from start to end as if it's a daily ritual for me. Best of 2005, definitely.
