In need of some fabulous music for Saturday night's dinner party or Sunday's brunch? Consider "Brazilian Girls" your new secret weapon for such occasions—and beyond.

In need of some fabulous music for Saturday night's dinner party or Sunday's brunch? Consider "Brazilian Girls" your new secret weapon for such occasions—and beyond. With nary a Brazilian in the group and only one female, the New York-based, multicultural Girls (singer Sabina Sciubba, keyboardist Didi Gutman, bassist Jesse Murphy and drummer Aaron Johnston) are akin to a modern-day Dr. Buzzard's Original Savannah Band. The rhythmically colorful group thinks nothing of drawing inspiration from a wide range of music, including bossa nova, dub, dance/electronic, jazz, easy listening and German Schlager. From "Homme" and "Lazy Lover" to "Don't Stop" and "Dance Till the Morning Sun," the overall vibe is ultra cool and ultra sexy. Throughout, Sciubba's multilingual delivery remains wickedly sublime.—MP
