About this deal

Cigarettes After Sex frontman Greg Gonzalez had a clear vision for his band’s gorgeously cinematic debut 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.

The thing I like the most is that this sounds like chill out, love music but listen a little closer.

Review: Cigarettes After Sex front man Greg Gonzalez puts his lovely voice front and centre on this atmospheric dream pop record as he works his way through a series of different fantasies. 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.All image and audio content is used by permission of the copyright holders or their agents, and/or according to fair dealing as per the UK Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988.

As the band name suggests, this eponymous album of haunting 'Dream pop' certainly touches upon the sedate inertia of post coital contentment. The record features a number of rather out-datedly objectified women who add sensual sounds but if you can get past that there is some fine candour and shadowy textures on this noir-pop long player. Sunsetz’ and the gently lilting ‘Sweet’, meanwhile, showcase Gonzalez’s ability to weave impressionistic snapshots of romance into melodies that haunt like memories of past loves, all coalescing around his melting vocals.Later, this was palmed off to Partisan Record Club members as the December 2023 shipment (with a Partisan badge.
