Cry (Deluxe)

Cigarettes After Sex

Cat No: PTKF2173-8

‘Cry’ – the sophomore album from Cigarettes After Sex. This is the first time the deluxe LP edition is being made available to retail. Clocking in at nine songs, ‘Cry’ is a compact collection but its brevity belies its depth. While the band’s sound may be most associated with the romantic pop music of the late 50s and early 60s, Greg Gonzalez pushes into more unexpected sonic territory on ‘Cry’, reaching back to his childhood in El Paso, Texas, to draw subtle melodic influence from 90s Tejano stars like Selena and mainstream pop country artists like Shania Twain. Gonzalez pushes himself lyrically on the album too, tackling sex with the graphic frankness of Henry Miller or Leonard Cohen as he renders unabashed, sometimes explicitly erotic scenes with a casual candour. Writing with a filmmaker’s eye, he captures tiny moments with a rich, cinematic detail that manages to locate the profound within the mundane.
