Lucky Listens: Lovefoxxx of CSS
Last Friday, I caught Brazilian rock band CSS at New York City's Webster Hall—and man, can those guys throw a dance party. As part of the weekend's CMJ festivities, the band (whose name is an abbreviation for the Portuguese phrase "Cansei de Ser Sexy," or "tired of being sexy") passed out glowsticks and performed hits from their new album, La Liberación.
And while the São Paulo quintet may have earned a permanent spot on my iPod's "Favorites" playlist, special recognition must be given to the band's frontwoman Luísa Hanae Matsushita--better known as Lovefoxxx--for her incredible style sense. Never one to shy away from a bold color, dizzying print, or armfuls of jewelry, Lovefoxxx has made a name for herself for her fearlessly cool look. See CSS' awesome video for their single "Hits Me Like a Rock" below—dance-shy types need not apply--and shop our Lovefoxxx-inspired pieces in the slideshow.
