Interactive Interview: CSS on Joan Jett, Drinking, and La Liberación


Since releasing their debut album in 2005, Brazilian dynamos CSS have proven themselves as one of the most entertaining live acts around, combining over-the-top onstage antics with their unique brand of party rock. Writing mostly in English with occasional bursts of Portuguese, the group — also known as Cansei de Ser Sexy — gained international attention with energetic anthems like “Let’s Make Love and Listen to Death From Above” and “Music Is My Hot Hot Sex,” before moving into looser, dancier territory with sophomore album Donkey.

This month, CSS return with their third album, La Liberación

, a hook-filled, song-focused collection heralded by a pop gem of a lead single, “Hits Me Like a Rock.” In our latest interactive video interview, frontwoman Lovefoxxx and guitarists Ana Rezende and Carol Parra join us to discuss the new record (which features contributions from Ratatat and Primal Scream’s Bobby Gillespie), their love of Joan Jett, and why their band is the equivalent of a fantastic meal.
