Everything they see is upside down. How else do you explain Bonde do Rolê? They turn Brazilian folk songs into dance tracks, and they make rockabilly replays into haunting taunts. In 2007, when their debut album With Lasers was released and Diplo and Pitchfork and the Fader and everyone else talked about how wild and weird and wonderful they were, it seemed like a stunt. In 2012, with their second album Tropicalbacanal about to be released, they’re even more wild, more weird, and more wonderful. Not many people know what Bonde are singing about, but everyone keeps singing along; they’re the third world Black Eyed Peas. Tropicalbacanal – produced by Diplo and Filip Nikolic of Poolside and featuring guest turns from Caetano Veloso, Das Racist, Cecile, Rizzle Kicks, and the Death Set – ushers in the fresh wave of avalanche tropical (the bossa nova of modern Brazil) and is all over the place; they wouldn’t have it any other way.
