Garotas Suecas

Escaldante Banda

American Dust 114

Released on September 7, 2010


Sweaty, funky, exotic, committed. Garotas Suecas (“Swedish Girls,” in Portuguese) hail from São Paulo, Brazil, and their hearty, fullthroated stew combines the best elements of their country’s homegrown Tropicalia with Anglo-American soul and freakbeat. The six members of the group met as teenagers at an open mic night and promptly formed a band, hijacking the home of an area poet for their rehearsals. They self-financed three EPs, toured Brazil, and outlandishly landed an MTV video music award. But what psychs the band more than anything is launching their Brazilian Invasion of the States. In the wake of their second smash appearance at SXSW in Austin and subsequent two-week US tour, Garotas Suecas’ debut full-length, Escaldante Banda, arrives just in time for a month-long encore tour in September. The band looks forward to blazing a smoldering trail across the country. Escaldante Banda offers a brew of Otis Redding soul grooves and Os Mutantes craziness. The Garotas’ most accomplished recording to date and the ideal Stateside introduction to Brazil’s best-kept secret, the record bursts with fuzz guitars, polyrhythms, scorching female backing vocals, big horn sections, and heavy psychedelia. Its grooves are thick, and it comes to make America shake. The perfect late-summer dance record.
