Not the popular author, C.S. Lewis, and not CSI Miami, Las Vegas, or New York. I’m talking about SÃ£o Paulo, Brizil’s own CSS, a band whose name is an acronym for, “cansei de ser sexy,” which translates into “tired of being sexy”–I hear ya sister.

I was excited to find out recently that CSS will be releasing their sophomore effort, Donkey, on July 22. I got into the band (not literally of course) a couple years ago and they quickly reminded me of many great female-fronted acts like the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Le Tigre, and Blondie. The only thing I didn’t like about them was their video for “Alala,” which did little to complement my favorite song off their album. It actually turned my stomach a bit. But speaking of “Alala,” for any of you runners out there, it’s a great little tune to toss into your iPod for a run.
