Garotas Suecas - Codinome Dinamite 7" single
"Garotas Suecas shouldn't merely be listened to or witnessed; they should be absorbed."
-Carrie Brownstein, Sleater-Kinney
Garotas Suecas (Swedish Girls in Portuguese) come raging from Sao Paolo, Brazil - five boys and a girl playing fuzzed-out, psychedelic garage rock nu-Tropicalia. Influences range from Otis Redding to Os Mutantes. The band's sound is funky and full-bodied: an infectious and danceable organ-drenched brew.
Already MTV Video Award winners in their native Brazil, Garotas are headed to the States for a two-week tour in March, including dates at SXSW and on both coasts. This 7" precedes a brand-new album to be released Stateside fall 2010.
