bonde do role: quero te amar.
BONDE DO ROLE never wowed me. Their "twisted party vibe full of funk carioca, metal riffs, electro beats and bawdy Portuguese raps" didn't really blow me away. I can't say that I was impressed that they toured with Diplo and Cansei de Ser Sexy. I simply did not care about them.
Well, I didn't care until I heard "Quero te Amar", a song off of their new full-length album With Lasers. I have a thing for Afrika Bambaata and anything with a remotely old-skool electro feel to it...so it was easy to sell me on this one. After a few listens, I learned a very valuable lesson: I should have been wowed from the beginning.
I took a step back and listened to "Gasolina" and "Solta O Frango". It was all good. I took a listen to some tracks off the new album. It was also all good. I don't understand what I was missing before, but I'm glad I finally found it. I began dancing, and it felt good. I guess you sometimes just have to listen to Diplo when he says things are cool. Also, how can you resist that album cover? LASERS!
