With their third album, La Liberación, out on Cooperative Music this August, Brazilian electro-rockers CSS are in promotion mode big-time. But with their U.S. tour set to wrap at the Metro in Chicago tomorrow night, the group is going to need a new way to generate some buzz. Proving themselves to be genius yet decidedly wholesome entrepreneurs, the five-piece have put together a mixtape entitled Songs for Cooking.
As if the title wasn’t obvious enough, it’s a playlist that lasts long enough (just under 50 minutes) to cook the band’s “Heavy Chocolaty Cookies That Will Remain Melted Inside Until Few Days Later” cookies (did Mrs. Fields ever bake those?). Said mix features delectable sonic offerings from L7, Ratatat, Dinosaur Jr., The Kills, Metronomy, and many more. Now, put on your best apron, crank those tunes, and channel Julia Child while you jam out. Bon appetit!
Check out the mix, the tracklist, and the recipe below. La Liberación hits stores August 29th via the Cooperative Music network.
