CSS: Donkey to gallop on Subpop July 21st

“Donkey” has been self-produced by CSS and was mixed by Mark “Spike” Spent of Björk and Massive Attack fame in Los Angeles. The album will contain eleven pieces in a spirit Subpop have described as “tough, street-ready, and recreating the frenetic energy of their live shows.” It will be interesting to see how the group will cope with the wave of high anticipation initiated by the media after a string of Brazilian bands arrived at “Western” shores roughly two years ago. The current album by their compatriots Tetine, for one, was equally met with praise and scepticism.

The live shows in support of “Donkey” will be the first to feature the new line-up of the band. After the recording of the album, Bassist Ira Trevisan left the group in friendship, stating: “I decided to move forward and dedicate more of my time to fashion and other projects. Just a big change of priorities, as I will never stop playing music. I am also a bit worried about climate change. People should care more and do something about it. I decided to fly less. CSS will always be in my heart. They said goodbye to their bass player, but they won a new life time fan. In health and sickness, in happiness and so forth. Blah blah blah, so help us God. "
