Step into the mess that is this delightful, dirty, art-punk-infected Brazilian baile funk outfit. Everything about Bonde Do Role is silly: the album cover, with its death-ray Rio Jesus; their three-member primal scream that comes off more like an adolescent whine; the ticky-tacky beats. But they know how silly they are and they play on it, which turns the whole project into an in-joke that excludes nobody. And underneath it all are the rump-rolling baile funk beats that deep-tongue Miami bass and big Brazilian carnaval equally, creating one of the most stupidly infectious romps of 2007.
