"Let's Make Love and Listen to Death from Above"

CSS - Let's Make Love and Listen to Death from Above (2003)

"Electroclash is a style of music that fuses New Wave and electronic dance music."

That's as good a definition as possible for this 6 piece band out of São Paulo Brazil. Funky bass lines, spacey keyboard sounds and a never-ending high hat dance beat make this song go. Lyrically it sounds like a teenager's poems written on Myspace in sparkly glitter font. They are actually name checking Canadian Dance-Punk band Death from Above 1979 in the title. At 2:30 we get two lines sung in a weird 'robot cat' voice. It's an odd song to say the very least.

According to the Internet, founder, primary songwriter, drummer, bassist, producer, and only male member Adriano Cintra left the band just a short while ago (November 11th 2011) saying that the rest of the band had let fame go to their head, and they weren't very good musicians anyway. He said they could not used any songs he wrote for the new album, and basically gave them a huge brush off in the Brazilian press.
