13 February 2013 - Bonde do Rolê - Brazilian Boys (feat. Cécile)

Let me be blunt: Bonde do Rolê are gifted remixers.  But they're also musicians in their own right.  Their music has traditionally combined Brazilian funk, punk, and club music styles.

With their last album - the first without original lead singer Marina Ribatski - they added dancehall to their style repertoire. Here, new vocalist Laura Taylor, who is more subtle than Marina Gasolina, easily captures the combination of bravado and sexuality needed to pull off a dancehall song.  They do enlist the assistance of Cécile. who is well-known in the dancehall world.

Really, they're a completely different band without Marina, but still fun and enjoyable.
