Album of the Month - November 2019
Rough Trade Exclusive grey vinyl with fold-out poster and poster print of Don’t Let Me Go single artwork.
The second album from post-coital-bliss rockers, Cigarettes After Sex, is an overbrimming romance of ambience and melody from start to finish. Greg Gonzalez's (in case you need reminding, that is a man singing) atmospheric manipulation is sedative and addictive. An aurally ingested Valium. So soft focus you'll think your ears have cataracts. But this is more than mood music. The lyrics reveal love letters to people throughout the many stages of a relationship. From desire to separation (and of course the sex in-between). For fans of Mazzy Star, Mojave 3 and sex.
