Description

As the band name suggests, this eponymous album of haunting 'Dream pop' certainly touches upon the sedate inertia of post coital contentment. If Cigarettes After Sex frontman Greg Gonzalez ever earns himself a nickname, it definitely wont be 'Speedy'.

Cigarettes After Sex frontman Greg Gonzalez's ability to set a scene and sustain a mood reels you in deeply. Gonzalez’s dreamy vocals echo amongst melodic guitars and delicate percussion, with odes to lovers past, present and future worn on this album’s sleeve.Finance is provided by PayPal Credit (a trading name of PayPal UK Ltd, Whittaker House, Whittaker Avenue, Richmond-Upon-Thames, Surrey, United Kingdom, TW9 1EH). The influxes of the 90s indie pop sound looms large over the record as objects such as anime porn come and go. After the phenomenal online break-out success of Nothing’s Gonna Hurt You Baby, from the band’s debut EP 1, the Brooklyn transplant (originally from El Paso) wanted to project his worldview on to a bigger screen, a broader canvas.

Syrupy, sensual, subterranean dream-pop is set against vocals from bandleader Greg Gonzalez that walk the subtle line between croon and whisper.To mirror their woozy romanticism in music, frontman Greg Gonzalez rejected conventional studio routes for his band, which numbers Randy Miller on bass, Jacob Tomsky on drums and Phillip Tubbs on keyboards. The songs are a perfect distillation of the starry-eyed atmosphere that the band has claimed as their signature in the six years since the release of their globally successful self-titled debut. But it's all good stuff really, its soothing sameness likely to provide a comfort blanket in THOSE moments rather than becoming a bore chore like say the second XX album. Yet Texas 'pop-noir' troupe Cigarettes After Sex are no ordinary shoegazers, for a variety of reasons - frontman Greg Gonzalez' androgynous and dulcet tones may be part of the appeal, yet moreover it's the quality of the songwriting here, which never falls prey to the style-over-substance traps of their peers.
