Cigarettes After Sex moves to Brooklyn, releases "Affection" LP + plays Baby's on 01.31

Cigarettes After Sex moves to Brooklyn, releases "Affection" LP + plays Baby's on 01.31

Founded in El Paso, TX, around 2008, and featuring a revolving cast of musicians collaborating with singer songwriter Greg Gonzalez, Cigarettes After Sex released debut EP "I" back in 2012. The record took the notion of "mellow pop" to extremes of slowness, melancholy and sparseness unheard since the days when Cowboy Junkies were hot (that was 1988). After building cult status notwithstanding being largely unnoticed by the "mainstream indie blogs," in 2015, Greg made the move to Brooklyn, with plans to release the band's debut album "Affection," scheduled for 2016. Two preview singles from the LP were released in the last few months; we are streaming below the first one, which also functions as title-track. The second one, "Keep On Loving You," can be heard here. If oyu are in the mood for been lulled to sleep in a music venue (maybe between the arm of your loved one!) you shouldn't miss Cigarettes After Sex's upcoming live show at Baby's All Right on January 31st. - Photo courtesy of the Sophie's Floorboard blog
