CIGARETTES AFTER SEX
Cigarettes After Sex (Parisan Records)
There’s considerable excitement about these New Yorkers and with good reason: their compellingly moody music evokes carnal pleasures and nocturnal activities. And those suggestions that they’re somewhere between Lana Del Rey and Interpol aren’t as outlandish as they seem. The basslines, jangly guitars and Greg Gonzalez’s distinctive croon coalesce effectively. The hype is justified.
