CSS is an acronym for cansei de ser sexy, or, for those of you too lazy to learn Portuguese, “So tired of being sexy.” But, all apologies, we never really wanted them for their brains. And on their third effort, it’s still the sexy that sells us. Sure, there’s a stunningly pretty little calypso smoothie, “Red Alert.” But it’s the hot, sneering electro-pop grinders like “You Could Have It All” and Lovefoxxx’s fiery teenage goth-chick reminiscence “City Grrrl” that really get our hormones jumping. Ending with a wicked, fuzzed-out snarl of clamorous nihilism called, charmingly, “Fuck Everything,” don’t be fooled—CSS definitely still want your sex.
