Out yesterday on Sup Pop is the new album from Brazil's CSS, Cansei De Ser Sexy. The electro poppers are out on tour now with fellow Brazilians, the bootlegging Bonde do Role as well as everybody's friend Diplo, playing the Varsity in Minneapolis on July 31. It's one of the few shows I'm looking forward to this summer.

A few links for more info, including a post at Fluokids featuring a bunch of remixes:
