Stream CSS’s “Planta” Album In Full + Watch CSS Makeover Webisode

By on June 6, 2013


Only one week away from release, CSS’s Planta straddles the line of pop, dance and punk while never losing energy or edge.
But if you can’t wait that long, the album will be streaming for the next seven days courtesy of Pitchfork Advance. Listen to it HERE.
Also available for the first time today is the first of three makeover webisodes featuring the ladies of CSS. Watch them refine the wardrobe, bedroom and diet of their touring drummer, JR HERE. Lucky Magazine will be debuting all three webisodes, so stay tuned the two additional videos that will premiere in the weeks to come.

Even if you only give it one listen the energy that courses through Planta can’t be denied, from the shimmying and shaking electro-fied opener “Honey” to the tambourine dream of “Faith in Love.” In many ways, the album’s boundlessness has been CSS’s goal since the beginning. Other standouts included “Dynamite” featuring friend and guest Hannah Blilie of The Gossip and the album’s breakout single “Hangover”, which was co-written with Tim Armstrong of Rancid.
CSS fans will get their chance to see “Hangover”, “Honey” and the band’s many more danceable tracks this summer on their June and July US tour. See the full list of dates below.
