Keep On Loving You


Cigarettes After Sex have found themselves in possession of a beautiful sound, a slow motion, monochrome crawl through a guitar led ambient haze with some highly ambiguous and androgynous vocals (courtesy of singer Greg Gonzalez). Lots of late 80s and early 90s reference points, you can spot them yourselves I'm sure. Their debut album is out now and is sounding like one that we'll be listening to for some time.

I like everything about Cigarettes After Sex, apart from their name.

Seems we had the same idea today, Adam. A true great record that I will listen often these days.

Yes, seeing this name around a lot at the moment (shame it's such a terrible one!)
I'm getting some Mazzy Star in there...?

Definitely some Mazzy Star in there.
It is a terrible, terrible name- but it works in getting them noticed.

THAT is how you elevate a song! I have to admit the original is one of my least favorite songs I can think of. This manages to totally reframe the song with irony and a skewed emotion that creates magic!

Swiss Adam said...

You're right Echorich- I neglected to mention it was an REO Speedwagon cover.
